ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

As you all know, a typical Italian dish you find in a traditional Italian kitchen is pasta.
Above all, home made pasta, in all its various forms - fettuccine, ravioli, gnocchi, lasagna, cannelloni, orecchiette, strozzapreti, fusilli, cavatelli, pici - is true to the authentic Italian cuisine! This cooking class in Rome will teach you the right cooking techniques to make your own Italian home made pasta. After our pasta making class, you will definitely be able to surprise your friends with new skills and delicious meals!

As a guest, you will prepare your meal guided by my help, after which we will experience our “masterpieces” together during a lovely, friendly dinner. Our pasta making class is all about having a good time, while learning about food and dining in Rome, and relaxing over a friendly meal with good conversation!

It is possible to customize the lesson asking me some changes.

It is also possible to plan a classic three course menu, with a first course, a main course (meat-based) and a dessert, for the same price or preparing two pastas and a dessert.

When eating in Rome, a dinner is not complete without a bottle of wine! As such, a simple wine will be served during the dinner. For special wines, it is possible to discuss it in advance.

*Cooking Class Timing:

The class starts at 5 pm to have dinner at 8 pm

P.S.: I have cats in the house, in case you are allergic. :)

ABOUT THELOCATION

My house is very comfortable, modern, and welcoming.
You will enjoy this meal in Rome in a 50 square meter cosy room, which combines the kitchen, the living room and dining room all at once. Shaped as such, the place, allows my guests to interact easily.

My place is very close to Vatican City and Prati quarter (50 meters from metro A, Cornelia stop). So it's also very easy to reach!
The quarter is very commercial and full of life - perfect to go shopping or to have a coffee before our event :)

Wonderful experience!!! It was certainly enchanced by meeting and working with other participants. My husband and I cook much at home and we still learned a lot. Raffa

Francesca was an incredible host and teacher! Due to a slightly bigger group than usual, she very generously expanded our menu to incorporate 4 different pastas and sauces - all showcasing different methods of making pasta with a wide range of delicious flavors. She made everything extremely clear and we all got a chance to be hands on in each of the methods. When we finally got to sit down to eat, she paired each of the different pastas with a wine to complement. The whole experience was wonderful and really worth the time and money. I highly recommend her course!

Francesca taught us to make fettuccine and ravioli and panna cotta. Everything was delicious and we plan to try to make the recipes again at home! Francesca was a very warm host, she had a good sense of humor, and we enjoyed spending a joyful evening with her.

We had a perfect cooking experience with Francesca! For my sister and I it was beyond anything we expected. For a few hours we felt everything the real Italian lifestyle is about. Lovely Francesca taught us all we wanted to know, from how to prepare the dough and how to make the most delicious pasta stuffing or sauces to how to use the pasta machine. Accompanied by some tasty wine and a panacotta dessert we made, we had a night full of laughter. I would recommend it to everyone! This could be THE highlight of your trip to Rome - give it a try :)

from Worcester

Francesca was so welcoming and is a natural teacher. She was able to explain all the steps necessary to prepare an amazing meal and allowed everyone to participate in some way. Francesca's apartment was perfectly set up for our family of four as well as another family of five. We would do this again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

We had a great food experience with Magic Francesca making different types of pasta, including a ravioli. My husband and teenage son, who do very little cooking, enjoyed the afternoon, and my son said it was the highlight of the trip for him. Francesca made sure everyone was comfortable and participating. She definitely knows her stuff; we tried lemon pasta in two different restaurants in Sorrento, and we all agreed they were not as not as good as the one we made with Francesca! We are looking forward to trying Francesca's recipes when we get home!

Our cooking session with Francesca was a highlight of our trip to Rome. We not only learned how to make some fantastic recipes but we also had a really fun evening and enjoyed a delicious meal that we cooked. It was an amazing value for a full evening of entertainment and food. She made us feel right at home and was great at giving instructions that were easy to follow. I am very excited to try out my new cooking skills.

We had a great evening over at Francesca's house. She has a lovely home and is clearly experienced for cooking with a group. Everything we made was absolutely delicious and it took less for a week for us to try out some of the things we learned at home. Thank you, Francesca, for a great class!
