The only thing better than eating your way across Rome is learning to make authentic dishes yourself so you can relive the memories and enjoy the flavors back at home. Become your own Italian chef by joining one of the Rome cooking classes below.
Cooking Classes with a Dinner or Market Visit
There’s an obvious joy in sitting down to a home-cooked Italian meal, but dining is much more rewarding when you’ve crafted that meal every step of the way, from market to kitchen to mouth. Experience the entire culinary journey with a tour that includes meeting a private chef and perusing the stalls of a local market to search for the freshest ingredients, all before heading back to prepare the meal in a private kitchen or home. Learn to make pizza, fettucine alfredo, or other traditional Italian cuisine, with the ultimate reward being the chance to sit down, taste, and toast your hard work.
Cooking Classes in a Local Home
To truly feel like you’re spending the day helping out nonna in the kitchen, consider a cooking class where you spend the day inside of a local’s home. Escape the rush of downtown Rome and journey out into the countryside, or whip up sauces and colorful pizzas at a private kitchen in the city. You’ll not only learn some new recipes and taste homemade Italian cooking but also experience the warmth and hospitality of Roman locals.
Gelato and Tiramisu Cooking Classes
Travelers with a sweet tooth can skip right to dessert by mastering how to make tiramisu and gelato. Learn to churn your own gelato and watch as the gooey, creamy dessert is crafted before your own eyes, or hear how gelato is different from ice cream and the ingredients that make it so rich, all while hanging with a local family in the heart of central Rome.
