A tiny universe for Italian foodies in Eugene

About me


Hi there! I’m an ex-academic in love with food and stories.

‘Delicious food, very personable and friendly teacher, fun hands on!’



“Guiditta is a wonderful person, and an amazing teacher.
Our fellow students were very nice, we all felt like old friends.
It was one of the most fun and informative evenings we have experienced.

The Tiramisu was as good as any we have had anywhere including Venice.”
