This was a fun class even if you do not do much cooking. Learning how to make pasta and homemade tomato sauce was easier than I thought. If you have already seen the highlights of Rome and want something different, this cooking lesson is for you.

It was amazing! I truly enjoyed it, we learned how to make 3 kinds of pasta, steak and tiramisu.
They made us eat so much we couldn and #39;t walk after the class!
We walked through the farmers market, butcher and visited the oldest bakery in town.
Thank you for the wonderful experience! ❤️

Exceeded expectations by a mile! Chef Vittoria customized the menu to my tastes and we cooked and ate excellent food. Not to mention the trip to the markets and Chef's tips and observations along the way. Without reservation, I would recommend this experience to anyone who loves food! Ten stars!!

This was the most AMAZING cooking class I've ever taken. It far exceeded my expectations. The chef was so awesome and helpful. We learned how to cook 4 different pasta dishes in addition to eggplant parmigiani and tiramisu. The 2 other students in the class with me were also blown away by the chef and his teaching and cooking techniques. I can't wait to go back to Italy again next year and sign up for another class. If you do anything in Rome, you MUST take this class. It is so worth the time and money. Trust me, you will not regret it. If anything, you will regret not taking it. Loved, loved, loved it!!!

It was a really good experience from start to finish. The only complaint I have is we were told we would be sent the recipes for the dishes we made and nothing has been emailed to us yet. We really want to recreate the experience back home, but it may only be in our memories.
