Duration: 3.5 hours
Start Time: 5.45pm
The most memorable, fun, and hands-on way to spend an evening, our 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 Italian pasta from scratch. No previous experience is necessary for your cooking class as your chef will guide you through the hands-on process. It's a great experience for seasoned cooks, amateurs, and even children.
Throughout the evening your chef will teach you take-home 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. 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.
Small groups are what make our cooking classes in Rome 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 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 local chef.
