At Host's place in Garbatella area of Rome, near to Terme di Caracalla
I meet so many people from different cultures who are all united by one thing – cooking!
‘Life is a combination of magic and pasta’ (Federico Fellini). Food is, and has always been, a way into a country’s or a place’s local culture. The Roman food culture is very rich and I am excited to be sharing it with you when you visit Rome!
A typical lesson goes something like this: we spend a couple of hours preparing, cooking, and learning about the dishes and the techniques used. Then we sit down to your very own home-cooked meal with a good bottle of wine.
I start by taking you through the ingredients, explaining the origin of each of them and the history of each recipe. I enjoy the variety of Italian regional cuisine and I'm keen to impart my knowledge with you. This is also a great way for people to get a taste of the real Italian culture when visiting Rome and learning how to make some authentic Italian dishes and bring these skills back home!

Garbatella, the Roman neighbourhood south-east of Testaccio,
It’s not far from San Pietro fuori le mure, the great Papal basilica, and it’s the home of Eataly: but these tend to be the only items that make it to the average traveller’s bucketlist.
In reality, Garbatella is a district that everyone should probably visit for its fascinating architecture and culture. Built at the turn of the last century, populated with Art Deco villas in a garden-city design,
I live in a more modern block in the shadow of Eataly and very close to the Acient appian way and Terme di Cracalla.
What a wonderful time we had! While in Rome, we decided to take a cooking class for a traditional Italian meal. We learned to make fresh pasta by hand as well as many other Italian specialties. Sandra was able to fit us in last minute and we are so grateful that she did. If you want to have an amazing time in a fun and welcoming environment, take a cooking class with Sandra. I cannot say enough great things about her and her instruction.
It was a fantastic local experience and Sandra was very friendly and knew exactly how to teach us the great techniques we learnt throughout the evening. The food was delicious also!
This was delicious and a lot of fun. Sandra involved everyone in the process. We would definitely do it again.
Amazing. Absolute highlight of my trip to Italy. Thank you so much, Sandra!!!
My wife and I had a blast cooking with Sandra. She explained to us step-by-step how to make pasta, meat sauce, and tiramisu while letting us do most of the work, which is the best way to learn. The pasta was delicious: tender and light, and the best I've had in Italy. And now that I know what real tiramisu is, I don't think I can ever go back. On top of that, Sandra is a generous and gregarious host. We had great conversation and good wine. And she offered us her dining recommendations in the city. We would love to take another lesson with Sandra in the summer in order to try the flavors of that season and to see her again!
Loved this so much! Sandra was a really great teacher - we made delicious food and we all sat down around the dinner table and enjoyed our meals with a bottle of wine. She also booked a taxi for us to get back home, which was very nice of her. This is a great way to make friends, too!
Sandra's cookery class was one of the best experiences we had whilst staying in Rome! Such delicious food and great knowledge learnt!! Sandra is so hospitable and welcoming. Now love making homemade pasta and have learnt cookery skills for life. Would reccommend to any foodie!
We had so much fun cooking at Sandra's house! She is interesting and fun to talk to, and very knowledgable on both her ingredients and food. She really made cooking fun, not to mention our meal turned out AMAZING! I would recommend this experience to anyone going to Rome. Thank you Sandra for the wonderful evening!
Our best evening during our trip in Rome! Sandra is really an expert in teaching, cooking and being an amazing host! This is the perfect way to learn AND taste some proper Italian local cuisine! She made us feel really welcome in her home. We made an amazing starter, artichoke, delicious pasta alla amatriciana, and finally tiramusi! For all the dishes, fresh local food & ingredients were used!
We had a wonderful time cooking a delicious 3 course meal with Sandra at home in her lovely kitchen. Under expert guidance we managed to producere a splendid starter, wonderful homemade pasta and a delicious dessert. All the while we talked and laughed and got wiser both about cooking, food and Rome. We highly recommend this opportunity and experience!
