As you all know, a typical Italian dish you find in a traditional Italian kitchen is pasta.
Above all, home made pasta, in all its various forms - fettuccine, ravioli, gnocchi, lasagna, cannelloni, orecchiette, strozzapreti, fusilli, cavatelli, pici - is true to the authentic Italian cuisine! This cooking class in Rome will teach you the right cooking techniques to make your own Italian home made pasta. After our pasta making class, you will definitely be able to surprise your friends with new skills and delicious meals!
As a guest, you will prepare your meal guided by my help, after which we will experience our “masterpieces” together during a lovely, friendly dinner. Our pasta making class is all about having a good time, while learning about food and dining in Rome, and relaxing over a friendly meal with good conversation!
It is possible to customize the lesson asking me some changes.
It is also possible to plan a classic three course menu, with a first course, a main course (meat-based) and a dessert, for the same price or preparing two pastas and a dessert.
When eating in Rome, a dinner is not complete without a bottle of wine!
As such, a simple wine will be served during the dinner. For special wines, it is possible to discuss it in advance.
P.S.: I have cats in the house, in case you are allergic. :)
