My husband and I had a wonderful time cooking with Fabio. The class was a lot of fun and we learned a lot about authentic Italian food. We spent ten days in Italy and this was one of the highlights!
Brilliant day! Great and friendly chefs with lots of local expertise. Many thanks to Fabio and his team !
This class was absolutely fantastic. We started off with a trip to the outdoor market and butcher then headed over to the home of our chef. He had a great apartment with a rooftop. There's no way we ever would have gotten that experience otherwise. Everyone in the class was fun/friendly. The chef and his assistants were helpful. The menu was comprehensive. We got to try a lot of traditional Italian dishes. Food was excellent. We had dessert and coffee at the chef's restaurant after. The class went on beyond the scheduled timeframe but well worth it. WE ALL HAD AN AMAZING TIME! Highly recommend!
Fabio was fantastic. We had a wonderful time. My husband was not that excited when we booked but Fabio made a believer out of him. He even wants to buy a pasta machine like we used at Fabio's house. Going to the market and walking through the local neighborhood was great. It was also nice of Fabio to end our class back at his restaurant for dessert.
Fantastic day. Loads of fun, good food, and I learnt how to prepare artichokes! Highly recommended.
Fabio and his staff were very entertaining, knowledgeable and wonderful teachers. He's also a great host as we dined in his apartment on the items we had completed plus lots of wine. I also think that the experience is based on the make up of the group - our group was a nice variety so it made for a positive experience.
Note: (not an issue) the lesson is much longer than stated...we started about 9 am and I was the first to leave at 3 pm.
As for the only negative - I didn't appreciate Fabio's comment '...I need a man to handle this big knife to cut the chicken...' Really?
Recommendation - would've have liked to have a memento (shirt, apron, etc.) of the lesson.
Overall it was a very positive experience and would do it again.
It was great. We met in a square, had a little tour of the Jewish Ghetto and then stopped for a traditional snack before heading to Campo D'Fiori to buy ingredients. Fabio was a great tour guide. We learned a lot about the food we used, and he made the cooking piece of it fun and enjoyable. I really enjoyed learning how to make pasta. We made about 6 dishes in total and then ate. The time went super quickly and I was surprised how he was able to finish by the time allotted. We did go to his restaurant at the end and had dessert and coffee. I liked that it was a small group and I was able to do so much of the cooking rather than watch him or someone else do it.
Fantastic, a brilliantly run cooking experience, would highly recommend.
Outstanding experience! Highly informative, entertaining and delicious! What more could you ask for? Bravo!
Except for the election of the new Pope, this was the highlight of my most recent trip to Rome. I highly recommend this tour! Not only was the experience educational and a lot of fun but Igor, Monica and Christian were great. I couldn't believe how delicious the food was that we prepared and cooked by ourselves. We were all very proud of the job we did. The people in my group were very nice and easy to get along with.
This cooking class was the highlight of my trip! Chef Monica was fun and fabulous!
Chef Fabio puts together a great experience. I would highly recommend this to
everyone and anyone.
This was one of the highlights of my European adventure. Fabio and Monica and the rest of the staff were absolutely wonderful and quite entertaining. Fabio was great fun and knows how to make cooking fun! and yummy! We cooked about 10 different dishes after visiting the market... and we ended the tour at his restaurant for desert! It was quite wonderful! I am so glad we booked it! Nancy and Kevin W. USA
The highlight of my (8th) trip to Italy. Fabio and his assistant were wonderful... trip to the market (with tour notes on the way), cooking lesson at his apartment, fantastic food and a great day! Can't wait to go back for another class!
We enjoyed our experience. We shopped first for our ingredients, then walked to the chef's apartment where we began preparing and cooking our food. It was a good social environment, nice to be in a home setting, and we made quite a few different dishes. Eating together was fun -- good conversation. We then went to the chef's restaurant for dessert. He was very social, informative, and organized. Would recomment this experience.
