"Giovedì gnocchi, venerdì pesce e sabato trippa..."
Or so the Roman saying goes. Gnocchi might be traditionally eaten every Thursday but hey, we teach you how to make them every day of the week (besides no one really follows that rule anymore)!
Learn the tips to get the right consistency and mouthfeel that you can then recreate in the comfort of your home. How do you make those signature grooves on gnocchi? How do you best conserve them? What is the ratio between potato and flour? What kind of potatoes? Egg, or no egg?
The class will include assembling a dessert of your choice and then the best part? Dining together with a good bottle of wine!
Your cooking class will be held at Via Ottorino Lazzarini, 5, a short walk from the Cipro Line A Metro stop.
We came to the Carettos hoping to learn to make gnocchi di patate as good as our Nonna Maria used to—and we did! But far more than that: we had our most convivial and delightful evening during our visit to Rome. Matteo and Nadya were fantastic hosts: warmly welcoming and deeply knowledgeable about Italian cooking. We came away, not only with the new culinary skills we had been seeking, but also with wonderful memories of a perfect evening and, we hope, two fine new friends! We cannot recommend the Carettos class too highly; it was a perfectly wonderful experience!
This experience is WAY overpriced. $84 per person to basically sit there and watch this couple cook for you and listen to them bicker with each other and them talking about themselves the entire time. We didn’t even get to make one part of the dessert, Nadia baked the entire thing and just said “we’ll give you the recipe.” Well, it’s been a week and I have received no recipes. The only “cooking” we did was roll some gnocchis. It’s nice to meet Rome locals and share a dinner, but I would not recommend this experience at all. The kitchen barely fit myself, my two travel companions, and the two hosts. I couldn’t imagine trying to fit any other people. It was not that great of an experience and I wish we had done something else that evening.
Nadia and Matteo were very knowledgable, incredibly hospitable, and lots of fun.
My girlfriend and I took the Gnocchi Thursdays cooking class with Nadia and Matteo, and they were absolutely phenomenal. The food was incredible, and they were excellent teachers. The lesson was perfectly hands on, well planned out, and we left having learned so much more about Italian cuisine, Tiramisu, the right way to make pesto, and so much more! They were well prepared, kitchen was well stocked, and the environment was perfect. Every part of the eating experience was excellent, and was without a doubt the best food we had eaten in all of Italy. When they inevitably open up their own restaurant, we want to be their first customers. Beyond how amazing the food was, Nadia and Matteo were great hosts. They were awesome company and were very warm, inviting, friendly, funny, and hospitable. Dinner was a ton of fun and an overall amazing experience. We cannot recommend Nadia and Matteo highly enough!
EXCELLENT HOSTS!! Amazing people, these 2 are!
