What To Expect
Are you curious? Do you like pasta? are you willing to discover its secrets? Well, then this is the experience for you. Guided by a local teacher, a "roman mamma" pasta won't hold anymore secrets for you! A great experience if you are willing to meet locals, shop where they do, cook the way they have been doing for centuries. Learn how to make pasta in the heart of Rome (behind Piazza Navona in a beautiful ancient building of 1500), where "fresh pasta" reigns from hundred of years. You will learn how to prepare South and North's fresh homemade pasta the old-fashioned way, with rolling pin and board! Not only you will learn, but you will have access to a real roman house, in one of the most exclusive areas of Rome: Piazza Navona! It is not a sterile school, but a home!!! An experience you'd normally get only if you have local friends!
This experience offers traditional, "nonna" style Italian cooking in a home setting where you'll learn the secrets, curiosities and traditions related to the dishes we will prepare together. The building where the apartment is located dates back to the end of the 1400, basically the time when America was being discovered! This is a new opportunity, up to now our classes were held in a different context and for a different public. We love what we do, and we love to share and get you fall in love with our tradition too. Traveling is not only about sightseeing, but tastes, people, sharing! This is why we decide to open our home to tourists who are willing not only to scratch the surface but to understand italian culture and lifestyle.
Our courses are Classic cooking lessons, where you'll be starting from scratch. You will have to prepare the dough, we will teach you how to prepare the different kinds of fresh pasta and how to recognise them, where they come from, how to choose the condiments... After preparing the fresh pasta, we will show you how to make the sauces (3 different kinds). You will be eating what you have prepared (so it better be good :-)). The menu includes: 3 pasta dishes, 1 home made pie slice, red chianti wine or coke or water and coffe to close the lunch.
Classic Pasta lessons last about 4 hours including dining time. You will prepare the pasta, make 3 pasta shapes and 2 of 3 their accompanying sauces. The price includes the market tour and grocery shopping.
