Unexpectedly a great experience I'm definitely not a cook nor do I cook regularly! Loved that it was intimate with 7 people including myself in the class and the chef took us through a market to shop for ingredients to be used for our dishes while explaining all the ingredients and giving us background information on them. The lesson lasted about 6-7 hours from start to end and included the chef serving us a 5-course meal including 3 of the different pasta dishes we helped make at the end outside in a little patio area. Experience and food were great!

This was so much fun. We followed chef through the market and shopped for fresh produce, meat and cheeses. A short walk to the kitchen where we prepared the best food I had in Rome. This is a pleasant change from all the sightseeing and crowds. You wont regret this experience.

This was a wonderful experience. The chef met us and asked about food allergies and eating habits, then to the market we went. After the market we headed to the kitchen where we were taught techniques for preparing the vegetables. Then it was onto the the pasta preparing. We learned how to make egg pasta and water pasta, so two different types. Then we prepared three different kinds of pasta. It was a really fun morning and our 5 course lunch was absolutely fantastic!

I did this cooking class with my mum and it was heaps of fun. We got to go to the markets and the butchers and see all the amazing produce that they have on offer. We learnt to make so many different varieties of pasta and learnt so much about what local actually eat from the chefs. Definitely a highlight of our Rome trip.
