Our teaching chef, tour guide and driver transported us from the chaos of Rome to the peaceful countryside of an ancient village where we had a fabulous cooking experience. Our teaching chef purchased the menu’s ingredients at the two local shops. Then we went to a beautiful apartment on the edge of a breathtaking view of a wooded gorge where we prepared a delicious lunch from scratch. We had so much fun making a multi course meal in the serene retreat with our teaching chef and her assistant. Enjoying our prepared meal with paired local wine will always be a wonderful memory of our time in Italy. Next time we’ll remember not to eat breakfast!!
I have been on other cooking tours. This was the best one. Monica was a joy to be with all day and she made us feel like we were on a family outing.
Thank you Monica.
What can I say, our day was awesome. Monica was able to take us totiny medieval village Calcata and then to the tiny neighborhood stores to shop for vegetables and meats for our day of fun. We were then ready for a wonderful and extensive day of cooking: making pasta treats(ravioli, fettuccini, and cappitelli on our day) risotto, bruschetta, chicken thighs, strawberries... and did I mention the wine? We had a wondeful teacher in Monica: great English, very patient, and wanting you to do as much as you'd like to do...dig into that pasta dough!!!! My only regret for the day was losing her card a and thus not being able to go online to retrieve the recipes and communicate with Monica. (Can you help me get in touch via email with her?? PLEASE)
Myself and 3 friends (and another couple) had the most fantastic day. We saw a part of Rome that we would never had visited and had a great time making pasta for our lunch. Definitely go again.
Teacher Monica was charming and very flexible making the entire experience so enjoyable. The sights and the location was an experience in itself.
OUTSTANDING!!! Chef Igor and crew were great! Highly recommended!
This was not only a delight but an extrordinary opportunity to learn from one of Italy's best chefs in a inspiring environment. The initial vivit to the small mouontain top village was a treat as well. I highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Rome. The tour guide/chef was named Monica.
Fantastic. Can not recommend this tour enough. Monica our chef was fantastic as was Alberta her aid. We cooked so much food, ate so much, drank, laughed all day. Enjoyable day
The cooking lesson was the perfect ending to my trip to Rome! Monica was fun, informative and a great instructor. The food, wine and conversation made the day so memorable, not to mention the countryside and medieval village. This was a perfect day and I couldn't recommend it more highly!
This was the best excursion we took when we were in Italy. Chef Monica was so welcoming and boy could she cook! The entire day was wonderful. Beautiful countryside and location for the class. Can't say enough good things about this tour.
