Hi, I am Alessandro! I have been cooking professionally for more than 20 years, and I will be glad to teach you what I have learned from my experience as an international chef. I have been the chef owner of "Da Alessandro" an Italian restaurant in New York, USA for more than 10 years. I have also taught pasta making and cooking classes for chefs in New York at the Four Seasons, Tavern on the Green, Harvard Club, and Serafina Group "Signor Ravioli" restaurants. I also managed a pasta factory in Hoboken, New Jersey. Now I live in Rome, my home town, specializing in teaching Italian pasta making at all levels. Looking forward to see you becoming a pasta maker in a few days.
