Ciao! I'm Silvana and I'm a 4th generation artisan pasta maker from Naples. My passion is to teach the dying art of making pasta entirely by hand, saving rare pasta shapes from disappearing and helping pasta lovers to recreate the authentic Italian experience, teaching techniques passed down to me by my family.
My grandma has taught me everything I know, started training me when I was a teeny weeny 5-year-old. She's been my only teacher for 17 years, allowing me to earn first hands experience in her small pasta factory. In July 2017 I featured on BBC2's "Inside the Factory" as a pasta expert.

Fun class. Now the challenge will be to recreate the same at home! Great time and worth the money.

This is a fantastic pasta making class. Silvana was amazing and really knew her stuff. I am half Italian and she taught me things I never knew about pasta!She was very entertaining and made it a thoroughly interesting and fun evening. At the end you get to eat the dish you have lovingly prepared, and it tasted amazing. Will be re-booking to come back with my family.
