This was such a wonderful experience. I especially liked the walk through the garden where we collected herbs. I plan to take this experience and build my knowledge of pasta to use in my own business. It was warm and like an afternoon with a good friend. We are excited for her growth. The passion she has for teaching and pasta will no doubt launch her toward her goals.

Alessandra was so amazing and knowledgeable about the culture. She made my sister and I feel so at home and welcomed. we got to experience shopping at the market like a local and walked through the city to a beautiful flat. During the class, She was so helpful and patient with our pasta making and help us prepare a wonderful and delicious dish. We had an amazing time and want to do it again!

First off just want to say how charismatic and kind Alessandra when she greeted us. Made the whole experience that much more. The workshop was superb from start to finish. We started off using fresh and local ingredients from a farmers market. Once we got to Alessandras place, We dived straight into making of the dough and filling. The level of knowledge Alessandra brings to pasta making is just to the highest standards. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to learn making pasta.

Alessandra was very attentive in making sure we had the right technique in forming and shaping the pasta. After we completed making the pasta, she showed us how to cook it in an amazing pesto sauce and local vegetables. Overall, the experience was absolutely incredible. The entire afternoon was filled with lots of information about pasta and the city of Lisbon and we shared great stories about her life before getting into teaching and cooking. Highly recommended!

We head a great experience at the workshop! Alessandra is welcoming, interested in you as a person and she has the creaziest life stories and lessons to share. We loved the experience and are definitely going to try and make pasta by ourselve at home. It is shocking how easy it is to cook delicious with no machine involved and so little ingredients.
