ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Food is an alternative and delicious way to learn about a country’s culture and history, especially Italy’s. Join us in our home for an immersive and engaging cooking lesson where you will learn how to prepare pasta from scratch and a classic Italian dessert, tiramisù. Other dessert options are also available if you'd like alternatives.

You’ll also hear about the origins of each dish and personal tips for cooking authentic Italian cuisine. Your hard work will be rewarded when you sit down to your very own home-cooked meal (appetizer, first course and dessert) with a good bottle of wine. Buon appetito!

The recipes will be sent to you after the class via email, so you can try them on your own back at home.

The timings stated are rough guides.

This is a have too!!!! They are such a warming couple and really know a lot about cooking and Italian background!!! We learned things we didn’t know before!!! They are a experience to have in the beginning of a trip though that’s our only mistake, is that we did it at the end!!!

We had a great time at our class with Matteo and Nadia! It was definitely the highlight of our daughter's time in Rome, and we all continue talking about it every day. The food was amazing but we also learned a lot about Italian cuisine, spices, regional differences, etc. Highly recommend it!

I wanna say thank you very much for the perfect cooking class in Rom. We had tagliatelle al ragu and tiramisu. My sister and I were so happy getting the opportunity to cook with such a nice couple. The whole lunch was like cooking with old friends. Besides the ragu was very good and the tiramisu the best we ever had!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!

We had a wonderful experience from the time we entered the door until our final ciao! The conversation was great and the food was excellent. We highly recommend Nadia & Matteo and their superb cooking lessons that consist of delicious Italian spices and herbs. It was a great way to end our trip and it will be one of our fondest memories.
