The most memorable, fun, and hands-on way to spend an evening, our Rome pasta-making class gives you a chance to enjoy a true, Roman experience. Your evening will start as all great Italian evenings do, with prosecco, aperitivo and conversation. You’ll be greeted by the chef and have some time to chat with your fellow cooks, enjoying the view from the terrace as you snack. Once you’ve relaxed, it’s time to learn how to make pasta – from scratch. If you want to make authentic Italian food at home, this is the number-one skill to learn. You’ll do it all yourself during our Rome cooking class, from mixing the ingredients to kneading the dough, rolling it and shaping it. No previous experience is necessary since your chef will guide you through the hands-on process – fun for both children and adults. Then sit back and relax over a glass of wine as he demonstrates how to make the perfect Roman ragú, a traditional Pasta all’Amatriciana.
Throughout the evening your chef will teach you tricks he picked up in Italian culinary school, from some simple tips on cooking the perfect pasta, to the different uses for different flours, the best sauce bases and substitute ingredients you can source at home. Of course you’ll be eating as you go. You’ll sample different Roman cheeses, enjoy a glass of prosecco before you start to cook and local wines during and after (be warned – he’ll keep pouring for as long as you’re drinking, Italians are dangerously hospitable), nibble on some of his own specialties prepared before class then enjoy dessert and a digestif, just as the Romans do. Please notify us if you have any food allergies, dietary restrictions, or other special requirements during your Rome pasta making class. Also, please note that if the weather does not permit eating on the terrace, the aperitivo and dinner will be held indoors.
