You do NOT need to speak Italian to take this class. But if you do, you can practice a bit with Pina!

We will send you an ingredient list once you have signed up for the class.

You will be cooking the meal in your kitchen, so please ensure you have the basic cooking supplies, such as pots, pans, etc. If you have any concerns about what you will need to cook the meal, please email [masked]

You will need a WiFi connection and a computer, smartphone, or tablet with video and audio capabilities that can access the Zoom app. Additionally, make sure that you are able to move the device around your kitchen as needed for the class.

If you don't feel like cooking with us, then you can just watch and cook later, but it is fun to cook along with Pina.

A Note from Your Teacher, Pina di Rosa:

Ciao! I was born in the south of Italy, in Naples, but I lived many years in Brescia, in the north. I earned my degree in nursing and I practiced for over 25 years in the fields of psychiatry and psychology.

My passion for the study of humanities lead me back to school where I graduated from the Università Degli Studi di Pavia with high honors in Italian Language and Literature, with a thesis of Latin Paleography on the handwriting of the poet Giacomo Leopardi. I have earned the DITALS (Certificate of proficiency in teaching Italian as a second language).

I love music. I am a singer and guitarist. I play in different venues in and around Portland, Oregon. I have published two CDs of my Italian music. I’ve always had many compliments on my cooking skills, so I teach Italian cooking in classes for children and adults. I am a world traveler, and once during a trip to Turkey, I met my husband, an American, and that was how I ended up here in Portland.
