A cooking lesson in Rome is a great way to experience the city in a unique and delicious way!
As you may know, Italy is divided into 20 regions, with each region having its own specific diet slowly evolving over the course of many centuries.
As with every culture, food plays a large part of the Italian culture. Learning how to prepare Roman cuisine will simply enhance your overall experience in Rome and provide a better understanding of the reasons why Roman cuisine stands apart from other cuisines throughout Italy.
Here is where it starts! Come have your first experience in a Roman kitchen and learn every secret that goes into each delicious bite!
This cooking lesson is situated in a Roman restaurant in the heart of Rome's famous Trastevere area. The menu you'll prepare is 4-courses and includes an appetizer, first course (fresh pasta or gnocchi with different sauces), second course (either meat or vegetarian) and a dessert.
All recipes are made from scratch, from appetizer to dessert and are all based on regional Roman cuisine. If you have any special requests for a specific Italian dish that you would like to prepare, please let us know in advance as the chef would be happy to satisfy your request.
Classes are approximately five hours from start to finish and begin at 10 am Monday through Saturday. They include a full meal based on the fruits of your labor following the cooking lesson.
These cooking classes are extremely popular and in great demand and we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
