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 the authentic recipe for Italy’s favorite dessert, tiramisù. Other dessert options are also available.
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 with a good bottle of wine. Buon appetito!

We had such a fun time learning to make pasta and lemon tiramisu (limonisu!) with Nadia and Matteo. They were brilliant hosts, very welcoming and we would definitely return if we came back to Rome. 5*!

Our family loved this cooking experience with The Carretos! We feel lucky to have found this class. My husband, my daughter age 12, my son age 9 and I enjoyed making gnocchi, and learning how other long pastas were made as well. We learned to make an amazing homeade sauce as well as tiramisu. Matteo and Nadia both really know their stuff when it comes to Italian cooking and It was so great learning from them! I can't wait to try the recipies at home. The most fun part of the night was sitting down to eat and chat with Nadia and Matteo- what a lovely couple!! My kids thought it was a highlight of Rome - we would do another cooking experience with Nadia and Matteo if we are lucky enough to make it back to Rome. I highly recommend any cooking experience this couple may host!
