ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Are you looking for a cooking lesson in Rome? How about taking a cooking lesson with locals in Rome? Join me for a hands-on cooking lesson in Rome, near the Vatican City, and experience a variety of delicious authentic Italian dishes.

Being a professional Chef and a Sommelier, you can expect to all the tips and tricks which will help you make this dish for your friends and family even after you go home! I'd love to pass on my knowledge of Italian cuisine to you as we cook the most important Italian dish of all: Pasta.
We will cook with fresh seasonal ingredients and enjoy the meal together once we're done cooking, of course with the best wines chosen by me, and perhaps some home-made limoncello!
Join me and my girlfriend - we are both Romans and we like cooking, wine, films and rugby. During our meal together, you can be sure to have a good, relaxing time, full of pleasant conversations. We like to talk about various subjects including food, films and readings. My girlfriend is in fact a writer and a film critic!
Besides cooking the best Italian dishes, we love meeting new people from around the world!

ABOUT THEMENU

We will prepare the 2 most important kinds of home made pasta: fettuccine and ravioli.
Fettuccine with "white ragù"sauce (with sausages)
Ravioli with a classic Italian tomato sauce with carrots, onions, celery and garlic.

Timing: Morning, Afternoon or Evening, depending on availability. I will do my best to accommodate your Roman schedule!

ABOUT THELOCATION

I live a short distance away from the Vatican City and St.Peter's, in a beautiful, quiet and cozy neighbourhood. The way to my apartment is filled with cobblestoned pathways and beautiful old houses. As it is also on a hill, you can catch a glimpse of the Roman skyline, over the Vatican City.
In the summer and when the weather is beautiful, we can have dinner in my well kept garden where you can see and smell the herbs I will use for your dishes and the lemon tree that I use for my homemade limoncello!

Alessandro's pasta-making class was flawless, one of our very favorite memories from Rome! He taught us how to make the full meal, from start to finish, and we had the time of our lives rolling that pasta! And the FOOD - it was one of our most delicious meals in Rome. (We couldn't believe we cooked it! :) ) Highly, highly recommend!!

I was actually on a business trip to Italy, and I had two free days in Rome before flying back to my country. Found out that Bonappetour is offering such service. So I thought of learning some Italian cooking to surprise my wife. My experience with Chef Alessandro was a very pleasant one. He is very friendly, and speaks perfect English. Not only he was teaching me how to cook Italian dishes, but at the same time explaining to me about Italian ingredients, geography, and even the culture! It was an amazing night spent with Alessandro and his lovely girlfriend. I've learned so much about Italy from them, including Italian wine areas and their characteristics. It was truly a memorable time. I will definitely come to Chef Alessandro again if I ever come back to Rome.

Thank you so much for this fantastic experience for my sister and brother-in-law!! They only said great things about Alessandro and his girlfriend. After their dinner, my sister texted me, "Alessandro's dinner was so fun and so delicious! He and his girlfriend were lovely and we were super impressed with what he did without wheat and dairy." Alessandro even had a birthday candle and dessert for my brother-in-law's birthday - so thoughtful. Would highly recommend!

We are always looking for ways to experience the place/ country as a local and cooking class combined with dinner in Alessandro house was a perfect choice. From day one - first email exchange - Alessandro shows he really cares about his guests and provide you with all the info you might need. Very patient and polite cooking teacher. Him and his girlfriend are very kind and interesting people and make you feel during the dinner like you are visiting your friends. I highly recommend the whole experience.

My husband and I had dinner with Alessandro and a wonderful guest from Holland. His home restaurant was a unique and delicious experience for us. Our food and wine was explained in great detail by our passionate host. We learned about Roman cooking, as well as having some laughs and great conversation about our different cultural traditions. I love being in the presence of someone passionate about what they do and we had that with Alessandro. The meal he made for us was fantastic. I'll be dreaming about the chicken in red wine sauce!

My cooking experience with Alessandro was amazing. Alessandro was such a warm, knowledgeable and generous host. I learnt so many invaluable tips, tricks and traditional methods of preparation from Alessandro. Alessandro is very skilful and passionate about using simple, fresh, seasonal ingredients to prepare amazingly flavoursome and nourishing dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the prepared meal with Alessandro and his partner Elena, who were able to give me an insight into what it was like living as an Italian. I can not recommend Alessandro as a cooking experience host or private chef enough! It has definitely been a highlight of my visit to Roma.

AMAZING! This was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We learned to make fresh Pasta that was so simple and so delicious. Alessandro is fantastic and the hospitality was outstanding. We had delicious wine and limoncello and great conversation. He gave us several recommendations for Rome and other areas of Italy, and everything we tried was great. We truly enjoyed our experience and wished we could have stayed longer in Rome to do his wine tasting tour. Highly Recommend. Thank you again so much Alessandro!
