It was our last day of our vacation and we wanted to do something special but not overwhelming. We had never done a cooking class before but I thought my wife of 34 years would love it. Needless to say it was a HUGE hit... We meet in a market, there where 11 of us, toured the market. What an experience. Then off to the house to learn to cook. I was concerned when I read the description the class not knowing where we would go to cook. But the location was lovely... Our instructors or chefs were very personalable, informative and overall great people. We really got a taste for the people and we loved it. I can not say enough good things about this class. Would do it again and again. Our pasta that we cooked was AMAZING!!! Loved it... Highly recommend!!!
Our chefs, Rafaella and Fernanda, were extremely charming, skillful and encouraging. They made us all feel welcome and peppered the class with helpful and amusing facts about Italian culture, cooking and restaurants. There were nine of us in total - a family of five, a mother and daughter and me, my husband and our friend. They patiently showed us how to make pasta, ravioli and Amatriciana sauce. They accommodated the dietary needs of everyone in the class, and they made it easy for us not only to create our own dinner, but to laugh, get to know each other and to sit down to a great meal together. By the end, we were happy, full and had made new friends.
The tour was amazing! Our guide Marcelo was very informative and enriching in regards to the Italian culture in Rome. We went to six different spots and experienced very tasty foods and got brought to some of the hidden gems in Rome. Had delicious wine at every stop and wonderful gelato to finish things off! What a great group we had!
WOW! So much fun! We learned a lot, laughed a lot and enjoyed the class. Stefan and Luca were amazing and we really enjoyed everything we learns. My husband is already looking at pasta making appliances!
Super fun experience, the chefs were very professional and fun. The instructions were clear and I really felt like I could walk away and make pasta at home.
