This was such a great experience! We took the train in from Rome. Claudia's friends met us at the station and drove us to her lovely home in the country. They were all so friendly, helpful and fun. With Claudia's instruction, we made pasta dishes. Another group made desserts. Then we all shared the meal together - including wine that Claudia had made herself. She has grapevines and olive trees on her property. She hand picks the grapes and olives to make wine and olive oil. It was one of our favorite parts of the trip - an authentic Italian experience. I would highly recommend this as an alternative and addition to all the wonderful site seeing in Rome. We would absolutely spend another day Cooking with Claudia if we ever return.

My friend and I absolutely loved this class. The chef Claudia was wonderful and the translator Elletra was so sweet and helpful along the way. It felt more like we were visiting good friends than attending either a regimented or scholastic class I've been to those in the past and this so much fun. I've loved to cook for a good many years, and learning new techniques as well as using such wonderful ingredients was inspiring. I am hoping I can duplicate many of the recipes we learned, but I will forever remember all of us sitting at her table in her lovely home, enjoying the fruits of our labor, touring her beautiful grounds, smelling all the fresh herbs she grows, and sampling her delicious wines. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to enjoy a brief train ride from Rome, see some of the gorgeous Italian countryside along the way, and experience what is sure to be one of the most enjoyable times you could imagine.

Our family of six, spent a wonderful week in Rome, looking forward to our cooking class in the country. We enjoyed the short train ride to Zagarolo, a lovely medieval town. Claudia greeted us at her home, and we started one of the most memorial days of our trip. We donned aprons and set to work making pasta. As the pasta rested we set to work making a delicious filling. Soon we were all laughing at our efforts in designing ravioli. The leftover pasta was scooped up and we watched linguini being made in the pasta press. Claudia was amazing moving from one thing to another as we made sauce, filling, cream for the dessert, and dessert dough. The recipes are simple but delicious and we all plan on making them at home.

Probably the best part of the day was the laughter. We laughed at our attempts to make various things, and at each other. The whole experience was so much fun. We are English speakers, and Claudia had a friend there to translate, as well as my husband who speaks Italian, but soon, with lots of hand gestures and some translation, we were all understanding the Italian/English language going on in the kitchen. Friendships and cooking transcends language. While the dessert dough was cooking Claudia took us out to show us her property. She and bruno have a small vineyard for their own wine, and olive tress for the oil used in the cooking class. It was fun to guess at the fresh herbs growing in pots and we actually used the whole sage leaves in one of the antipastos. So delicious.

Sitting down family style with Claudia and Bruno was a treat. So much amazing food, and conversation. We were so well taken care of, we hated to leave. This was the perfect ending to our week in Rome. We hated to say good-bye to our new friends. I sincerely hope we get to see them again.

This was an amazing day. We had the opportunity to experience Italian hospitality as Claudia welcomed us into her home where we learned to make homemade pasta. We were there with another group who was taking a dessert making class.

We started with hand rolled pasta that was used to create lasagna, from there we made ravioli filling and then hand-made the raviolis while Claudia cooked them in a butter sauce. Finally, we created linguine pasta that was used for carbonara. The cooking itself was fun, but probably the best part was the overall experience. The countryside was beautiful and the experience was authentic. Claudia is a very patient and enjoyable host! She and her friends made us all feel comfortable and it felt more like we were at a large family gathering cooking a big dinner for family.

Once all the food was complete pastas, bread, desserts we all sat down at a large table in her house and enjoyed the fruits of our labor. Claudia complimented the meal with her homemade red and white wines. My family and I spent a week in Italy visiting all the touristy locations, but I can honestly say this was one of the most enjoyable parts of the trip.
