Top Cooking Classes in Rome
By Viator, August 2015
While eating your way through the country is a perfectly acceptable way to spend your time, learning how to cook the food yourself is even better. Take an Italian cooking class so you can bring Italy into your own kitchen, impressing your friends with the smells, tastes and pleasures that one can only find in Italia.
With the Rome Walking Tour and Cooking Class, combine a lesson in handmade pasta with a little exercise and history. A walk around Rome’s famous sights like the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain will give you the appetite to eat the plentiful lunch you’re about to make.
To truly master the art of Italian cooking, you must also learn the art of choosing fresh ingredients. The Small-Group Cooking Lesson in Rome and the Florence Cooking Course with Local Market Visit will give you the foundation you need to become an expert. Visit a local market with a guide and be introduced to regional food producers as you learn to distinguish high-quality ingredients and try your hand at bargaining for the perfect tomato (perhaps don’t try this part at your local grocery store).
Of course, no Italian meal is complete without the wine. Get a lesson in pairing your favorite dishes with the perfect glass of red or white during the Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence or during the Small-Group Cooking Class in the Roman Countryside.
Whichever class (or classes) you choose, get ready to stuff your own ravioli, and then stuff yourself. You might want to save room in your suitcase for a bigger pair of jeans.
