Rome Pasta Cooking Class in a Chef's Home

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    A stone throw away from the historic centre of Rome, is a lovely neighborhood, where your host lives.  As a professional linguist and a private chef, she would like to welcome you to her very own home, for an authentic Italian cooking class, where you get to learn how to prepare homemade pasta (fettuccine, gnocchi and lasagna) or pizza, right in a typical Italian home kitchen. She will share with you her grandmother's traditional recipes and tips that has been passed down for several generations, and also share stories about Italian food, culture and tradition in a relaxed and homely ambiance. If you are looking for a different style of cooking class, where it is not conducted in a professional studio, but at an actual kitchen where you could really absorb the knowledge and skills you learn, then you've come to the right place.

    After the cooking class, you will get to enjoy the meal with your host at her dining table, where you get to share stories with each other, and simply learn about the Italian way of life- La Dolce Vita.

    You can choose one of these:
    - just pasta
    - just pizza
    - a 3-course menu
    - pasta, pizza and dessert

    Spent several hours learning how to make 3 different version of pasta, was very hands-on and relaxing experience. Would have liked a little more time making the sauces, but I did enough to feel that I could probably recreate what I did.
