EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION
LEARN TO MAKE HOMEMADE PASTA WITH THE HELP OF A LOCAL CHEF
The most memorable, fun, and hands-on way to spend an evening, our Rome pasta-making class gives you a chance to enjoy a true, Roman experience. Your experience will start as all great Italian evenings do, with prosecco, aperitivo and conversation. You’ll be greeted by the chef and have some time to chat with your fellow cooks on the terrace before you start.
Once you’ve relaxed, it’s time to learn how to make pasta – from scratch! If you want to make authentic Italian food at home, this is the number-one skill to learn. You’ll do it all yourself during our Rome cooking class, from mixing the ingredients to kneading the dough, rolling it and shaping it. No previous experience is necessary since your chef will guide you through the hands-on process – fun for both children and adults. Then sit back and relax over a glass of wine as he demonstrates how to make the perfect Roman ragú, a traditional Pasta all’Amatriciana.
NOTE: From March 1, 2017 this tour becomes a little more expensive to reflect a change in our night: You'll learn to cook not just one but two types of pasta - including stuffed ravioli - and enjoy dessert after your dinner.
ENJOY LOCAL WINE & APPETIZERS AS YOU LEARN ABOUT ITALIAN CUISINE
Throughout the evening your chef will teach you tricks for cooking the perfect pasta; from the different uses for different flours, to the best sauce bases and substitute ingredients you can source at home. Of course you’ll be eating as you go. You’ll sample different Roman appetizers together with prosecco before you start to cook and local wines as you make your own pasta from scratch!
The highlight of your evening will be the dish you’ve cooked for yourself – a Roman specialty guaranteed to be the most satisfying meal of your stay in Italy. Enjoy your meal out on the terrace under the Roman sky. Wrap it all up with a dessert and a digestif, just as the Romans do.
MORE LIKE AN EVENING WITH FRIENDS
The wine helps of course, and the teamwork that goes into mixing, rolling, shaping and cooking your pasta – but key to this intimate experience is our small groups. With only 14 people or fewer, you’ll get to know everyone and have plenty of time to chat with the chef. In the relaxed environment of his rooftop studio, you’ll feel comfortable and perfectly at home – especially when it comes to enjoying the fruit of your labor out on the terrace!
Throughout the experience we encourage you to ask as many questions as you like. This is your chance to learn about how to cook and eat like an Italian from a true expert – take full advantage of it.
For an evening you’ll never forget; cook, dine and drink wine with our friendly Roman chef.
