What people are saying about Parma

Great fun preparing and then eating a great lunch

Marghaurita was great. Showing me in great detail three items for lunch. She is passionate about food and teaching. We enjoyed cooking and talking about our own families. She is now part of my Italian family. It’s a 42 minute bus ride from my hotel to her home out of the centre of Parma but she went out of her way to instruct me on the correct bus route out of town. She licked me yo from the station.

Lovely host who knows how to cook!

Wonderful, friendly atmosphere, with the charming humorous Margarita who answers any questions with motivation and diligence, and you can easily exchange fun conversations with her while dining and indulging into the food you have just cooked. This lady cooks with love!
