$83.69 per guest
$83.69 per guest
As a professional & certified wine sommelier, I'd like to invite you to my home for an intimate and interactive wine tasting. It gives me great job to be able to share my perception of wine with other people.
The wine world is all about culture, passion, history, love for the country, food.
To me, wine is like a living organism: it has a birth date, a growing age, a maturity age and an old age.
A wine is never equaled to itself in different moments and even, depending on the the glass it changes continuously.
I can offer 2 sessions:
Morning session starts at 10 am and finishes at 12 pm
Evening session starts at 6 pm and finishes at 8 pm
From 1st June to 1st September
Just one session: evening session starts at 7 pm and finishes at 9 pm
Its possible having private classes for at least 2 persons.
The price for person in that case is 140 plus Bonappetour fee.
My house is very comfortable, modern, and welcoming.
You will enjoy this meal in Rome in a 50 meter square cosy room, which combines the kitchen, the living room and dining room all at once. Shaped as such, the place, allows my guests to interact easily.
My place is very close to Vatican City and Prati quarter (50 meters from metro A, Cornelia stop). So it's also very easy to reach!
The quarter is very commercial and full of life - perfect to go shopping or have a coffee before our event :)
P.S.: I have cats in the house, in case you are allergic. :)
Francesca was a wonderful host. I personally love the food, especially the Trippa alla Romana. Francesca is also a sommelier, which is why she knows how to pair the wines with the food perfectly. Magic's Francesca is recommended for travellers wanting to experience authentic Roman food (an Italian friend ate with me and he acknowledged it). Thanks Francesca, see you next time.
This was such a nice experience. Francesca's home is very cozy and we tried so many different types of wines! It was soo delicious. Lots of fun. Thank you!!
Francesca was brilliant, warm and welcoming. Really enjoyed the experience. Thank you Francesca!
Our evening at Francesca's could not have been more delightful. Let me count the ways. 1. That lady can cook. We were kind of overwhelmed by the menu we requested. We all had to make room for dessert, which was well worth the effort. 2, None of us knows much about Italian wine, now we know we like that too. 3. As wonderful as all of that was, by concensus, we felt blessed and privileged to be made so welcome in Francesca's home. Finally, 4. We found out that with a little courage and trust, we were able to confirm our belief that the world is full of "good friends and neighbors." Doreen, Louisiana, USA
Francesca was so welcoming and is a natural teacher. She was able to explain all the steps necessary to prepare an amazing meal and allowed everyone to participate in some way. Francesca's apartment was perfectly set up for our family of four as well as another family of five. We would do this again in a heartbeat. Thank you!
We had a great food experience with Magic Francesca making different types of pasta, including a ravioli. My husband and teenage son, who do very little cooking, enjoyed the afternoon, and my son said it was the highlight of the trip for him. Francesca made sure everyone was comfortable and participating. She definitely knows her stuff; we tried lemon pasta in two different restaurants in Sorrento, and we all agreed they were not as not as good as the one we made with Francesca! We are looking forward to trying Francesca's recipes when we get home!
Our cooking session with Francesca was a highlight of our trip to Rome. We not only learned how to make some fantastic recipes but we also had a really fun evening and enjoyed a delicious meal that we cooked. It was an amazing value for a full evening of entertainment and food. She made us feel right at home and was great at giving instructions that were easy to follow. I am very excited to try out my new cooking skills.
We had a great evening over at Francesca's house. She has a lovely home and is clearly experienced for cooking with a group. Everything we made was absolutely delicious and it took less for a week for us to try out some of the things we learned at home. Thank you, Francesca, for a great class!
Wonderful evening with a lovely host. Thank you so much for teaching us to make pasta!
