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 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.

Brilliant! just such a fun thing to do on holiday! We learned loads about pasta, olive oil, tiramisu and much more. The five hours flew by as we prepared,cooked, chatted, ate and ate some more! They made us feel right at home and I would definitely recommend to our friends. The pasta machine has been bought and the first batch of pasta made!

The Carettos were wonderful hosts who made us feel as if we were at a friends home for dinner. We got to experience Italian cooking from a couple of locals who are very well versed in pasta making, Italian ingredients, and recommendations for tourists. The class ended up being nearly 5 hours because we were having such a good time cooking, trading stories, and drinking wine. Overall wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting Rome.
