Small-Group Cooking Lesson in Rome
Reviewed by: Allison F C, June 2015
We ended up only have 4 people in the cooking class, so it felt like a private lesson! Fabio met us at the Campo di' Fiori outdoor market, and took us to his preferred vendors to select fresh vegetables, meats and breads for our class. He then took us on an unexpected short walking tour of the neighborhood...where he seemed to know everyone we bumped into! The cooking class was held at his gorgeous two-story with rooftop deck apartment, within 5 minutes walking distance from the market. We made three types of pasta, bruschetta, broccoli and zucchini and strawberries with balsamic dressing for dessert. DELICOUS meal! The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five stars was because we did not get to actually cook any of the food only preparation...Fabio had a kitchen staff for cooking. Additionally, we only shared one bottle of wine during the meal. It would have been nice to have wine during the preparation process also. However, Fabio was a fabulous cook and host, and we had a great time! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a local, unique experience while visiting Rome. Be warned that it will take up your entire day though...9am-3pm.

This was an absolute fantastic experience. It has been on my wish list for a long time and never disappointed. Frederico was a really good teacher, funny and very knowledgable. I would recommend this for anyone visiting Rome. It was great being able to select your own produce

Fantastic! Our chef Monica was brilliant in her teaching skills in making the novice and experienced cooks on the group successful in making three types of pasta dishes, a meat dish and a dessert. I would do this again. No problems at all were encountered. A great day.

Spectacular.....Federico was everything you could have wanted. Knowledgable, entertaining and patient. Cannot recommend this experience more. We went with our 13 yr old grandson who loved it.

One of the most fun experiences we have ever had on a tour. Chef Fabio showed us how to make the best Spinach and Ricotta ravioli I have ever tasted!

Wonderful - learning from the beginning with getting fresh ingredients from the market to making pasta from scratch to having a great meal! Federico and his assistant made it fun. He was so great at showing and explaining the process and we were able to get our hands dirty also - as it is easier to learn if we did the work also!
