Mani in Pasta (hands in the dough)! What we offer is not only a cooking class. While preparing the dishes we talk (even in Italian, why not), we laugh and we learn. Marianna, the Tropean chef, is the classic "yesteryear lady", a lovely housewife who keeps the secrets of traditional Calabrian cuisine. In each session that we offer, we will make some traditional fresh pasta. The typical pasta of Tropea (and not only) - 'fileja and maltagliati' or "orecchiette, "tagliatelle", "cavatelli" - will be seasoned for tasting with 2 other exclusive products of the area: the 'sweet' red onion of Tropea PGI (as a vegetarian option) and the “n'duja” of Spilinga PGI, famous spicy spreadable salami based of pork and Calabrian pepper or with a special chickpeas and sage recipe. Plus, Marianna prepares always a surprise as a special extra dish to taste all together. All this in a jovial and cheerful atmosphere and, naturally, all accompanied with some good Calabrian wine that we will taste at the time of the aperitif and for the whole duration of the activity. At the end limoncello or homemade chocolate liqueur for everyone. Prosit! Other things to note For security reasons, we cannot accept guests with serious food allergies or intolerances. For special requests on food, drink or, in general, about the menu, these must be notified in advance.
