Marina is so lovely and welcoming. We are invited to her home to prepare the most incredible pasta from tagliatelle to ravioli to tortellini. From spinach and ricotta to roast mushrooms and ricotta to pork beef mortadella prosciutto Parmesan fillings. The pasta is then cooked in simple but delicious sauces, think brown butter and sage, cream and Parmesan, pork and peas. Afterwards, we sit together  + more

Amazing food and loved the results, the recipe and advice was so helpful!

Still a great experience but coud use a little more structure for a group as big as ours.

Make Hand Rolled Pasta for Team Building



We had a work group participate in this course as a team building activity during lockdown and we had an amazing time. Marina was a lovely instructor and the process was very easy to follow. It was a lot of fun making the pasta and the sauce was incredibly delicious. Thank you Marina - looking forward to doing another course!

Marina was clear and informative, my daughter was over the moon with her pasta making. She’s 10y and was so proud to have made dinner from scratch. Thanks Marina

Perhaps doing 2 different pastas was difficult in the time especially with different abilities. Generally very enjoyable!

It was ok, a little fast and my gnocchi turned out quite crappy and weird looking :-)

A great pasta making experience and fun way to celebrate a lockdown Birthday via Zoom with the lovely Marina Totta. We had an enjoyable afternoon and we learned lots of new pasta making skills and made a delicious dinner. I highly recommend this experience.

Pasta Making Masterclass at Home



Marina was a great teacher! She was very informative and helpful. She adapted to our utensils and was very patient when our pasta machine almost broke halfway through. The pasta making made very little mess and was a lot easier and straight forward than we thought, especially with Marina's expert advice. The sauce and pasta we made was delicious, and we would definitely recommend this class to others who are interested in trying pasta making.

Marina was a great teacher. She was constantly checking how each of us were doing and helping us when needed. Materials provided were also of good quality. Definitely good value for the money as I got to make my own pasta, eat it in a dish and enjoy the company of the class.

Pasta Course: Pasta Journey Through Italy



My partner and I attended three of Marina's classes and we had so much fun! Marina was very lovely, friendly and patient. The classes were small and personal. We particularly enjoyed having a class at Marina's house and meeting her family as well. We've definitely learned skills to use for pasta making at home. I could not recommend her classes more

Cooking class



Marina was a joy. A great teacher. And very patient. She is super communicative and very helpful when preparing for each class. Learned so many repeatable foundational skills on how to consistently make delicious pasta. Doing the four weeks was well worth it as you can practice the skills and grow your confidence to continue making pasta on your own. Marina’s recipes are restaurant quality, seriously you’ll think you were at Ragazzi or A Tavola they’re that good. We did the class virtually and would highly recommend it to anyone. No hesitation.  + more

My very first attempt at pasta making & using a pasta maker! Marina was patient, guiding me through the process & answering my many questions. And at the end of the session, I sat down to a delicious gluten-free meal.
