Me and my girlfriend showed up to Chef Noona home on July 6th at noon. She greeted us with the biggest smile, it was very welcoming. The menu was fettuccine Pasta with Alfredo sauce and a mixed green salad with vinaigrette. The dessert was a Apple Crostata Once in the home we were provided a recipe list of what we were going to cook. Chef Noona sat us down and carefully went over the whole recipe sheet detailing the reasons and science of the ingredients. This made me feel very comfortable and helped me understand more about certain ingredients. The hardest part about the meal to us was creating the dough, but Chef Noona helped us tremendously and showed genuine patience. I really enjoyed the experience and will recommend her to anyone! Thanks again Chef Noona, we will be back.

Chef nonna was fantastic. We started with making the dough for the apple galette. She asked if we wanted to either use a manual pastry blender or food processor to mix the dough. After mixing the dough and assembling the apples we baked the galette. Next on the menu was making the pasta, she had us divide the ingredients so that we each would make our own dough. With just flour an egg and some water, we kneed our own personal ball of dough before using the pasta machine to roll out our dough to fettuccine. We asked for a lactose free alfredo sauce, she taught us a recipe using two types of nuts, soy milk and nutritional yeast. After assembling the salad, cooking the pasta and adding the ‘lactose free’ alfredo sauce we ate our yummy meal and finished with the apple galette. The pasta and galette took much longer then Chef Nonna anticipated, we never felt rushed and she still allowed time for us to enjoy our meal.
