TBC via email: Corso del Rinascimento, 65 or Via Giustiniani, 18. Ring the doorbell 'InRome Cooking'
Ask any Italian what their favorite food is and they'll always qualify their answer with 'della nonna'. Whether it's hand-rolled spinach and ricotta ravioli in sage butter sauce or polpette (meatballs) lavished in a rich tomato ragù, recipes cooked as their grandmas made them carry a sacred place in the heart of Italian culinary culture.
This private 3-hour class equips you with all the know-how you need to conjure up real Italian cuisine. Spending a morning, afternoon, or evening with Rome's favorite nonna, you'll perfect the art of making three traditional pasta dishes, topped off with some mouthwatering tiramisù. Want to learn more about the course? Read on to find out.
Arriving at either our 17th-century palazzo next to Piazza Navona or our sleek, stylish school a stone's throw from the Pantheon, you'll be greeted with a warm reception of prosecco and antipasti-style snacks.
This drinks and snacks reception provides the perfect opportunity to meet your chef, la nonna, before making your way into the kitchen.
Here's where the fun starts. Following Nonna's expert guidance, you'll get stuck into making and rolling out your own pasta dough before running it through a traditional pasta machine.
Try your hand at making three different types of pasta, from long thin threads of fettuccine to stuffed ravioli.
Which sauces or fillings you use will depend on the time of year (we only source the freshest seasonal ingredients for our classes). But remember: you're always welcome to specify if there's a particular dish you'd like to learn.
When in Rome, learn a sinfully sweet recipe to bring back home! Your nonna will share her secret to the perfect tiramisù (or 'pick me up' as it means in Italian because of the caffeine hit its coffee gives). Craft this creamy, dreamy dessert from scratch before sitting yourself down at the dining table to indulge on what you've created.
At the end of this unique and unforgettable experience, you'll have a chance to linger over a lunch or dinner of what you prepared in class. Accompanied by a wide selection of soft and alcoholic drinks to suit every taste.
