Who we are:
InRome Cooking grew out of a deep love of Roman-style, Italian food. Brother and Sister: Marilena and Salvatore Barberi, brought to life their dream of opening a cooking school. The school is in tribute to their father’s legendary restaurant near the Vatican.
After 20 years of hosting and guiding visitors around Rome, the Barberi’s now welcome you to learn Italian recipes from scratch while resting in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.
Set in a fantastic historic apartment in the city center, meticulously renovated in 2016. The dining room has a 17th century, hand painted ceiling. And, the school has a sleek, modern kitchen with several stovetops and big marble tables.
Partaking in one of our unique classes is experential travel at it's finest. We specialize in market shopping & cooking with famous Chefs and wine tastings with the best sommeliers. We offer guests the awesome chance to immerse themselves in Italian lifestyle, cuisine and culture with locals.
