Calling all Italian food lovers! If you’re a gourmand, cooking aficionado or a fan of homemade cuisine, this intimate, full-day cooking tour from Rome is for you! Numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 people on this small-group Italian cooking class, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your knowledgeable food expert. You will travel to a small village in the Roman countryside, where you’ll learn to cook a traditional Italian meal.
Where better than the Roman countryside to take an Italian cooking class? You will spend the day with a skilled chef who will take you step-by-step through the process of preparing a traditional Italian meal, from appetizer to dessert. The small number of participants in this class ensures you will have personalized attention from your expert chef and a highly memorable Italian culinary experience.

Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Rome. Your guide will take you off the beaten path to the ancient village of Mazzano Romano, where you’ll visit the local market to acquire all the necessary ingredients for your class. Your guide will give you tips for selecting the best and freshest vegetables, eggs, spices and meat. Then it’s time to start cooking!

Your cooking lesson takes place in a fully equipped, typical Roman kitchen. Under the guidance of your chef, you will learn how to prepare a four-course Italian meal, including three different types of homemade pasta. You will also learn how to match each dish with suitable wines, selected from the best local varieties. Of course, no Italian cooking experience would be complete without sampling your creations – when you have finished in the kitchen, you’ll gather round the table with your fellow aspiring chefs, sip some wine and taste the delicious Italian meal you have prepared.

Your day trip ends with the drive back to Rome for hotel drop-off.

This was the best part of our trip to Rome and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative to the museums not that they aren't wonderful too. Francesco was our chef and guide, and he picked us up right on time in Rome and took us to Mazzano where we visited 3 different markets to get our meat, produce and cheeses about 40 minutes outside of Rome, and looks just like the picture!. We then walked through Mazzano and into a charming home where we made three types of pasta ravioli, fettuccine and gnocchi, veal saltimbocca and tiramisu. After doing the prep work, Francesco finished the final cooking and we ate our creations with wine, served in a lovely dining room. Francisco was wonderful, the town was beautiful, and it was a great opportunity to see some countryside outside of Rome. And the food....I am still dreaming about it! Just won't be sorry.

We loved the cooking class and the house in the countryside was beautiful. Our instructor was a wonderful teacher and we had a lot of fun.
