Cook an Italian Sunday Lunch with Farmers’ Market Shopping | Shared
To begin you’ll meet the Chef at the local Farmers’ market to buy the ingredients. Take in the bustling atmosphere and spot fellow shoppers preparing for their feasts by picking the freshest vegetables and debating over which cheese to choose for antipasti.
With your shopping basket full, it is time to head back to our 17th-century palazzo behind Piazza Navona or our new cooking school near the Pantheon to start preparing for lunch over a glass of prosecco and appetizers.
As per tradition, the menu will involve a generous primo- a lasagna made with fresh pasta and ragù alla bolognese or gnocchi di patate served with a rich tomato sauce and a dusting of local pecorino. What comes next will depend on the season- artichokes in spring, roasted peppers in summer or baked pumpkin in autumn.
There will be a typical Roman meat dish to enjoy with all the wonderful local vegetables- chicken cooked in the hunters’ style with olives and rosemary or roast-sucking lamb. To finish the meal a classic Italian dessert such as panna cotta and some fresh fruit picked at the market.
Sunday lunch lives on as a sacred tradition, bringing families and friends over a wonderful feast. An experience not to be missed if you are in Rome on a Sunday!
