From August 6th, all Italy sites we visit will require clients and guides alike to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test completed within 48 hours prior to entry. They will also require a legal form of ID matching the vaccination or test results. This does not apply to children under 12. You can read more about it here.
The most memorable, fun, and hands-on way to spend an evening in Rome, our pasta-making class gives you a chance to enjoy an authentic culinary experience while learning some tricks for your own kitchen.
Your evening starts with prosecco, traditional Italian aperitivi, and conversation with fellow "students" and the local chefs who teach the class. Once all the introductions have been made, 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. No previous experience is necessary as your chef will guide you through. It's a great experience for seasoned cooks, amateurs, and even those bambini (kids)!
Throughout the evening your chef will teach you take-home tricks for cooking the perfect pasta; from the different uses of various flours to the best sauces 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 dish you cook for yourself. Enjoy them in the garden at a local space under the Roman sky, then wrap it all up with a dessert of gelato - presented to you by your chef while your pasta settles. You truly are doing as the Romans do now!
Small groups are what make our cooking classes such enjoyable experiences. With only 12 people or fewer, you’ll get to know everyone and have plenty of time to chat with the chef. In this relaxed environment, on a small street in charming Trastevere, you’ll feel comfortable and perfectly at home.
For an evening you’ll never forget; cook, dine and drink wine with our friendly local chef.
