About your host, Rossella

My name is Rossella Martinello and I was born and raised in a small town by the sea in Calabria, Italy. I have always been passionate about cooking Italian food for as long as I can remember! Growing up in Italy, food is a big part of our culture. As a young girl, I began to follow in my mother’s footsteps by creating her simple and delicious recipes. My dream and goal is to bring my Italian background and culture into the homes of many families so they too can enjoy quality time together while eating a delicious yet healthy Italian meal!

What we'll do

Hi everyone! During this month October has been a really busy month for me, but I will able enjoy taking a class with you! On Saturday, October 24th where we will be making homemade Ricotta cheese. This is a super easy and satisfying recipe. Fresh homemade ricotta cheese is a world away from the ones you buy at the supermarket. And ridiculously quick to make, with just three ingredients. We will also be making Linguine with Lemon Sauce, and an extra recipe that will be a total surprise for you! Hope to see you then have a nice beginning of fall!

What I'll provide

Cooking Class

I will be making authentic Italian dishes, including gluten free and vegetarian dishes.

Who can come

Guests ages 2 and up can attend.


The guests can bring the necessary ingredients for the upcoming cooking class, if they would like to follow along in making the specific dish with me! Please see packing list below.

Where we'll be

I will be hosting my cooking classes here at my home in Chicago. But when I will be traveling in the future to Italy, after this worldwide pandemic, I will also be hosting my classes there, where all the food that I prepare originates!

I spent a very enjoyable hour in Rosellas kitchen....virtually! She seems a very warm and friendly sister and although in the US Rosella made us feel we were in Italy cooking with her! Very clear instructions, I would love to join another of her classes when time permits.

It was fun to cook with Rossella. She had fun ideas on how to use your in-season garden vegetables. The dish was delicious! And easy! I will join again next time. Thank you!

My experience with Rossella's cooking class was an excellent. Considering the time frame her choice of simple dishes were just perfect. Although simple to prepare the presentation was amazing. I'm looking forward to taking another class.
