This experience was one of the highlights for me and my son in Rome. We met Chef Fabio and embarked on an adventure we will never forget. A stroll to the Jewish baker, the butcher, farmers market and fish monger to select the ingredients for our day of cooking was a special treat. Our prosciutto cheese pizza snack along the way that Monica prepared for us while at the butcher was delicious. We saw Rome the way it is intended and avoided the typical cattle hearding tours. The cooking class was so different- no rushing- no waiting in line - personal and delightful Chefs eager to show us a good time and share their skills. Thank you Chef Fabio, Monica, and Igor for making this THE BEST experience we had in Rome. It was truly a Fabiolous Cooking Day!!!
Even though the sights of Rome are fabulous, this was the highlight of our trip! Fabio was an absolutely wonderful host, tour guide, and teacher. We loved the small group and being able to cook in a Roman home. It was a great reminder that, 'yes', we can do this in our home. We highly recommend this experience!
Highly recommend this enjoyable course. Went home with fond memories and a few recipes.
Mæli eindregið með þessari upplifun á Róm. Var einn í fyrrihluta og fékk því að upplifa eldhúsið með kokkunum. Fór heim með góðar minningar og nokkrar uppskriftir
I would definitely recommend this tour. It was one of our favorites. It was like knowing someone in Rome that led you through great neighborhoods and great sites and then you got to go to one of those great old apartments and learn how to cook authentic roman food. Fabio was wonderful, the apartment was wonderful, the cooking was wonderful, the food was delicious!
I must admit to being surprised at how good this cooking lesson was. The tour was interesting, although maybe packing a little too much distance for the 90mins. But the ccoking course was great. I was wary having previously made pasta, and being a fairly keen cook, that this might not be enjoyable. However it was great. It catered for all levels amongst the group of 6 I took, with hands on guidance for novices, and interesting tips, and new approaches for the more experienced. The hosts were great, engaging, and seemed delighted to be sharing their time with us. Lastly the menu took into account too vegetarian/kosher friends fairly seamlessly, with a reasonable alternative for the one meat dish course - which you would of course, expect in Italy! Recommended to all.
This is a great way to get a walking tour of the Jewish Ghetto, experience a Roman market and have fun preparing a feast for lunch! We had a great time - Fabio was very entertaining. It was especially fun learning how to make various pastas. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a different experience while in Rome. And, of course, the food was AMAZING!
This was an amazing cooking class. The day was superb starting by touring the city of Rome and visiting the markets to pick out the ingredients for our meal. Back to the apartment to prepare three pastas, two side dishes and dessert. We were taught to do everything and so much fun! The meal we had together was the best meal we had in Rome, by far! I highly recommend this course to anyone who likes to cook or just likes to eat good food!! It will not disappoint. A wonderful way to enjoy Rome.
My husband and I spent a fabulous day cooking with Fabio. We created some impressive dishes under his supervision and came away with many new cooking tips, techniques and ideas. It was fun and inspirational being in a real 'Roman kitchen' with such a talented chef.
Fabio (our chef) was great. We learned. We had fun. We ate really good food that we made ourselves. l would take this class again and again if I could.
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Fabio and Natalier. Fabio was very entertaining and knowledgeable. To cook and eat in his home was just amazing. We had a fantastic group with us. Walking around Rome and going to the local shops and markets was a real highlight. I would (and have) recommend this cooking experience to anyone staying in Rome. Thank you Fabio.
A great day in the kitchen! Fabio was the best. It was just what I was looking for. The shopping, the walk to the kitchen and the hands-on experience was just fabulous.
A fun learning experience--enjoyed the shopping, the preparation of the food and the eating. Good friendly interaction with the teachers.
A day I will never forget. Our "small group" of three was combined with two families, for a total of eleven. Four of them were children. It could have been a disaster, but Fabio and his hard working assistant Mieta made sure everyone was involved, everyone had fun and shared in their wonderful enthusiasm for Rome and for cooking. The best day, by far, on a 13 day trip.
