Tour description

Learn how to cook fresh pasta 'nonna'-style, in a historic setting in Rome’s Giannicolo's Terrace. After shopping at the Campo de’ Fiori food market, walk to a 16th-century private house to make dough from scratch and roll out pasta the traditional way: with a rolling pin and board. Create different pasta shapes with accompanying sauces, and also the Tiramisu Making and eating time!  and then finish on a high note as you eat your meal with wine, soft drinks, and coffee.

Meet your guide at Piazza Farnese, and stroll with the rest of your group to Campo dei Fiori, home to a bustling food market in the heart of Rome. Shop for ingredients, and then stroll with your guide and group to your cooking class. Taking part in a 16th-century private house in Piazza Navona, the setting is an authentic Roman venue, perfect for traditional, nonna-style cooking.With the help of your chef, you’ll make two different doughs to create a variety of shapes from maccheroncini to fettuccine, cavatelli, orecchiette, spaghetti, garganelli, trofie, strozzapreti, and more. Taste olive oil, and hear secrets, curiosities, and traditions that relate to the dishes as you roll out the dough with a rolling pin.After preparing the fresh pasta, learn how to make three different sauces — perhaps amatriciana or carbonara — and then sit down to eat your creations. The full menu includes three pasta dishes, a slice of a homemade pie, Chianti wine, coffee, water, and soft drinks.Your pasta class finishes when your meal ends.Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
