ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Are you looking for a vegan 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 in a vegan way: fettuccine and ravioli.
Fettuccine with sautéed zucchini.
Ravioli with a classic Italian tomato sauce with carrots, onions, celery and garlic. The filling will be spinach and tofu.

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 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.

We enjoyed a wonderful five course dinner with Alessandro at his " home restaurant" in an intimate teracce setting. Alessandro had put a lot of thought into the menu, and the dishes were perfect for a very warm August evening. Everything was fresh and light, and many of the ingredients were from his garden. Alessandro was also a gracious host shared lots of insights into local food and wine. Everything combined to make a wonderful, memorable evening.

We booked a four-course dinner at Alessandro's home restaurant via BonAppetour. It was a great opportunity to experience a genuine home-cooked meal with a local host, in a non-touristy neighbourhood (albeit not far from the Vatican). From the start, communication with Alessandro was very easy - he was friendly and quick to respond. We were a group of four with very different dietary requirements and preferences, which Alessandro took into account with the menu. Our opinions of individual dishes differed, but we all agreed that the pasta and chicken were outstanding - the best dishes I'd tasted in Rome! The bruschetta made with homegrown tomatoes was also stunning. I don't drink, so Alessandro introduced me to Chinotto, which was refreshing and absolutely delicious. Alessandro was a great host. He explained how he made each dish and we had a very interesting conversation about all sorts of things! As it was summer, we sat in the (sheltered) garden and were able to go up to the roof terrace and see the homegrown herbs and vegetables he used. Afterwards he sent us an email with plenty of food-related tips and recommendations, and we visited one of the recommended food stores which was indeed amazing! I highly recommend dinner with Alessandro. There are many great restaurants in Rome, but Alessandro's kindness and hospitality, and the personalised experience, made this event truly memorable.

Dinner at Alessandro's was a truly delightful part of my short stay in Rome, and the best meal I had without question. I was on my own, and no one else booked on the same night, so I had a delicious meal made just for me. I enjoyed our conversation and learned a lot from Alessandro about the ingredients in the dishes he prepared. He is a talented chef and he and Elena are gracious hosts and I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Rome!

My husband and I had a dining experience with Alessandro during our trip to Rome that was fabulous to say the least. It came at the end of a 3 week trip to Italy mostly in Puglia and was most definitely our best meal of the entire trip. Alessandro is a talented chef as well as a sommelier. Our meal was prepared with care and incredibly fresh with all local ingredients and a great wine pairing of a regional wine. I hope to duplicate some of the dishes when I return home. The conversation was engaging and it was great getting to know Alessandro as a person as well as a chef. We left with full tummies, well satisfied and friends. We hope that our paths cross again in Italy or possibly a trip for Alessandro and his girlfriend to California. If you book a food experience with Alessandro I can tell you right now you won't be disappointed. Bon appetit as they say!
