Cooking with Nonna
This 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 two traditional dishes, topped off with some mouthwatering panna cotta. Want to learn more? Read on to find out!
Enjoy a prosecco and antipasti reception
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 our nonna, your chef, before making your way into the kitchen.
Perfect the art of making three Roman dishes
Here’s where the fun starts. Following Nonna‘s expert guidance, you’ll get stuck into making and rolling out your own Italian gnocchi dough. 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.
As well as this, you’ll master the art of Italian meatballs: a classic that’s loved throughout the world. The perfect accompaniment to scrumptious gnocchi, this is the perfect introduction to Italian cuisine. But we’re not done yet – dessert is yet to come!
Conjure up a mouthwatering panna cotta to accompany your mains
When in Rome, learn a sinfully sweet recipe to bring back home! Your nonna will share her secret to the perfect panna cotta. Craft this creamy, dreamy dessert from scratch before sitting yourself down at the dining table to indulge on what you’ve created.
Indulge in your meal with a choice of local wines, beers or coffee
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.
I'll be coming back to Rome and will definitely be booking this again. Thank you so much, Sara, for making my first trip to Rome that much better! read less
