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.

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.
