About me

Ciao! My name is Marina, welcome to Pasta Journey!


In Italy, making pasta together is a Sunday tradition. We cook together and express our love for family and friends through food. My pasta journey began at four years of age in my Grandmother Benedetta’s kitchen in Sicily, where she taught me to craft my first handmade tagliatelle. I love to teach and can’t wait to share my family recipes with you.


Prior to arriving in Australia, I Iived in Bologna, the Italian capital of pasta making. There I learnt how to master different flours and to blend them properly with eggs or water.

Shanghai, Taipei and Hong Kong have also be my home. During my time abroad, I would regularly prepare Italian food to remain connected to my heritage and family back home.

When living in Taipei, I also founded the successful in-home cooking school “Ginger Kitchen”.

Fresh Pasta Delivery

Delicious authentic Italian handmade pasta and ready made meals.

I make all the pasta by hand using only the best quality 00 flour, semolina and free cage eggs, giving you a silky texture and rich flavour. I want to deliver a high quality and most importantly, a delicious product!

I love Fresh pasta, I really do! If you do too and are searching for alternatives with less environmental impact, welcome to Pasta Journey!

In Australia only 14 per cent of plastic is recovered for recycling or energy recovery. This is a big concern for me, and I am here to make a change.

I believe the best solution is simply to avoid all plastics so I select all suppliers and materials very carefully.


Pasta Journey’s mission is to provide delicious meals whilst cutting waste and reducing plastic, and I want this to be easier for Pasta Journey's customers too. That’s why  pasta comes in a compostable cardboard boxes, made in Australia.

I don’t use any plastic, and I am proud of it!

Pasta making classes


When I am not making pasta, I love to host and connect with people through workshops and cooking classes.

Virtual class dates are live, so you can choose between hand-rolled pasta (equipment free and vegan) gluten free pasta, handmade pasta 101 and ravioli party.

Get your family’s dinner ready in two hours, we cook together and have fun with other people online. I will guide you from my kitchen in Melbourne, and at the end of the class you will be sharing a healthy home style meal with your family.

I want you to feel at easy during the class and we can speck English, Mandarin and, of course, Italian.​


No matter where we live in the world, food is so much more than just eating. It continues tradition, connects to others, it’s passionate and nourishes the soul.

It is taking care of our families by offering them a slow cooked home style meal, and enjoying it all together around a beautiful set table.
