We can really have a lot of fun cooking several different type of "lasagna al forno", super meat or veggie "polpette" (balls) for kids, hand made grissini (breadstick), polenta with 4 cheeses, ragu' alla Bolognese,....
It is possible to set up classes up to 3 student at the same price per hour ..with more fun! I have to add all groceries needed.
I have completed the BASIC FOOD HANDLER'S COURSE in date 6/10/2014 .
I hope to see you soon!

We had a great time learning from Massimo. You can't learn the proper consistence of pasta dough from a book or video. We will be using all the techniques we learned. The marinara sauce he taught us to make was simple, but delicious. We will definitely call on Massimo again.

I cook almost every day. As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

I am really enjoying working with Robin. He is extremely knowledgable and experienced, and has already taught me a lot. He is assessing what I already know and what direction I want to go in, and he is making this totally individualized to the coaching i am looking for. I appreciate his efforts, expertise and thoughtfulness.

Robin is a natural teacher. I have had several golf lessons with him and was impressed by his knowledge of the sport and passion for the game. He often went about and beyond what I expected. I am looking forward to more lessons soon.

Being a native Italian and having lived in Rome for over 30 years gives me the necessary knowledge to know what is needed in order to learn the Italian cuisine and get deeper into the Italian culture. Also having over 20 years of teaching experience allows me to tailor my knowledge to the need of every particular student. I really enjoy to transfer my knowledge and solve the unique problems that every student encounter during their path. My love for Italian cuisine brought me to develop some skills that allow me to create delicious Italian meals and I love to teach them to those who are interested to learn!
