pastamadre workshops

Our workshops are not only fun and sociable, but also provide a foundation for scientific and nutritional knowledge. This knowledge, combined with a hands-on application, enables each individual to explore their own creativity.

One of the best things about the Mediterranean diet, especially southern Italian food, aside from being delicious, is that it’s so simple! At Pastamadre Workshops we reevaluate traditional home-style cooking by keeping things simple, playing with a few high-quality ingredients, and bringing the best out of them!


We organize private workshops for groups. Feel free to contact us for any information!
