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

The timings stated are rough guides.

We had the best time with Nadia and Matteo! They were both very welcoming and so knowledgeable about food (as well as many of their other passions). Highly recommend to anyone travelling to Rome :)




We wish we had done this upon our Rome arrival..this was by far the highlight of an already amazing vacation. We cruised 10 days all over Europe and meeting and dining with Nadia and Matteo was the highlight! I would give this experience 10 stars if I could. The food was delicious, we laughed, we rolled pasta, we shrunk Atlantic distances and sealed the deal with flavorful tiramisu, perfect pasta and local limoncello. We will be sure to see our new friends when we return to Rome :)
