Our cooking classes are always run by local chefs When you arrive to this Rome cooking class, the hor d'oeuvres are already waiting. Don't fill up! There is plenty of food on the way. Have a glass of bubbly before you start cooking. Taking photos of your food is not only allowed, it's encouraged. Our pasta is made from nothing but flour and fresh eggs. Incorporating the flour... Roman egg yolks are brilliantly yellow. The dough comes together little by little. When it gets to thick for your fork, it's time to start with the hand. Kneading pasta dough is a time-honored tradition of Italian cooking. Our chefs will show you how to bet intense flavors out of humble ingredients. There is no smell quite like the aroma of cooking guanciale. After resting your dough, it's time to roll it out. Marking ravioli is an art in an of itself. You don't kneed to be a pro to make perfect ravioli. Cutting uniform pasta is a lot easier with the right tools. A fresh batch of pasta! Drying pasta on a traditional pasta dryer Making ravioli takes a soft touch. Piping bags are useful for more than just frosting. Is your mouthwatering yet? Nothing like a glass of Italian wine to wash down your creations. Enjoy the food you just cooked with your fellow classmates. There is nothing like eating dinner on a rooftop in Central Rome. We also provide desert at the end of the meal. Don't forget to collect your diploma. We want YOU for a Rome cooking class!

EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

A COMPREHENSIVE ROME COOKING CLASS

The most memorable, fun, and hands-on way to spend an evening, our Rome cooking class gives you a chance to enjoy an authentic culinary experience and learn some tricks for your own kitchen. Your evening starts with prosecco, traditional Italian aperitivi and conversation with your fellow students and the local chefs who teach the class.

Once you’ve relaxed, it’s time to learn how to make traditional Italian pasta from scratch! You’ll learn every step and do them all yourself, from mixing the ingredients to kneading the dough and making the sauce. You'll make two different types of pasta, one ravioli and another surprise. No previous experience is necessary for your Rome cooking class since your chef will guide you through the hands-on process. It's a great experience for seasoned cooks, amateurs, and even children.

ENJOY LOCAL WINE & APPETIZERS AS YOU LEARN ABOUT ITALIAN CUISINE

Throughout the evening your chef will teach you take-home tricks for cooking perfect pasta; from the different uses for different flours, to the best sauce bases and substitute ingredients you can source at home. You’ll also be tasting as you go but the highlight of your evening will be the dishes you cook for yourself. Enjoy them out on the terrace under the Roman sky, then wrap it all up with a dessert and a digestif, just as the Romans do.

AN UNFORGETTABE EVENING WITH FRIENDS

Small groups are what make our Rome cooking classes such enjoyable experiences. 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 a rooftop terrace in central Rome, 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.

Such a fun class. Danielle and Francesca were good teachers, friendly and helpful. I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it to my friends.
This was so fun! Both chefs were great educators and answered all of our questions. Roberto was hilarious and made me feel like I was at his home! Our pasta maker is in the email and I couldn't be more thrilled. The pace and structure of the class was perfect- there were definitely a range of levels that included less experienced cooks, so the class format was great. I already had a good feeling coming in when everyone was told to wash their hands and pull back their hair. Thanks for a great experience!
This was such a fun experience! One of the highlights of our entire trip.

wow.... the setting was just beautiful and the experience was so much fun. We met some nice people that were in our group. We do a cooking class as we travel and this was by far one of the most fun, beautiful and fabulous meals. We would book the same class again, we had so much fun.

I will be recommending ALL my friends to take this pasta making class!!!!

They were great teachers and very patient, but also very funny and sweet. I really can't thank them enough!
