Our guide/cook was amazing! My fiance and I had such a great time!!! It was us and one other couple who showed up later on. I loved seeing the countryside and us going with the cook to pick up all the groceries for dinner in the small completely unique town. The little house we cooked in was so adorable and had amazing views! I loved learning and being able to make all the recipes and wow sooo much food and all of it was insanely delicious!! Definitely want to do this again if we ever come back to Rome!

Wonderful experience! One of very best tours weve ever booked.
After about a 45 minute ride in a comfortable shuttle bus, we arrived at the idyllic town of Mazzano Romano and met our chef/guide, Elisa. She took us along with her as we went into three little shops for fresh ingredients for our menu. We then ventured to the apartment which was apparently built in about 1300 AD, where Alisa guided us in how to make: a simple pizza prepared three ways potatoes, red onions, mozzarella with tomatoes, veal saltimbocca, ravioli stuffed with ricotta/spinach, gnocchi with prosciutto and sweet pepper sauce, fettuccine with delicious homemade tomato based pasta sauce, and a dark chocolate lava cake. Elisa choose the menu with our preferences in mind as well as freshness of produce. We left very satisfied with full bellies and an eagerness to try out the recipes at home!
My wife and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary while we participated in this wonderful event. It was a bit of a ride to Mazzano Romano, but it was worth it for the beautiful view from the apartment where our chef led the eight guest in our cooking class. Prior to arriving there, we shopped at the local butcher shop and market. With supplies in tow, we walked up to the beautiful apartment where the chef and her assistant first showed us how to make a simple pizza with various toppings and then several tricks for making pasta several different ways, All the activities were supported with many laughs and plenty of wine. We sat together for a multi-course feast with more wine and laughter. We napped on on the ride back with full bellies and a great memory.
Phenomenal. Highly recommended. Had a blast w Eliza and Marco our chefs
Such an awesome day. From being picked up by our wonderful driver Roy, meeting our chef Elisa, buying our ingredients and then cooking and eating our four course meal-it was a perfect. The highlight of my trip and now ticked off my bucket list - bellisimo
Best day spent in Italy ever, great chef wonderful cooking experience in an over the top place. I want to go back.
This activity actually teaches you practical Italian home cooking technique. 10 stars.
such a fun time and the food was amazing, actually some of my favorite food out of our 2 week trip! would definitely do again!
This was a great tour. We learnt how to make pasta, saltimbocca alla roma and mushroom fresh porcini risotto. The old village was very beautiful, the butcher that supplied the veal sang and the two cooks were great. A very enjoyable tour.
Fun group, really informative cooking lesson, shopping for ingredients beforehand was fun and the wine was plentiful. Look forward to t46ing recipies at home.

Absolutely amazing, very much enjoyed. Even the drive to the location was an experience.
This was the highlight of our trip. Eliza, the chef and the driver sous chef were both so fun and enjoyable. I am a good home chef and of Italian decent yet I learned several new things and can't wait to try them. The other couple that was on the tour were great and the food was amazing! My husband is actually excited about making pasta now. Highly recommend this tour

We did this as a last minute decision while in Rome and couldn't be happier with the experience. Our class was in the countryside with two other couples. After a drive to the countryside we visited a small market for fresh fruit and vegetables, a real butcher, and a cheese maker. We learned how to make three kinds of pasta, a veal appetizer, an appetizer from the chef's grandmother we all called pizza alla Rosa, several sauces and a dessert. We even learned the best way to clean a mushroom...peel it, who knew!! Our chef Elisa and her assistant Marco were fun and funny. We have been home three weeks and have made pizza alla Rosa three times, the peach dessert twice and the ravioli. A great class and am thrilled to get to repeat them at home.
This was an excellent experience. We would want to do this again if we came back to Rome.
This was just a wonderful day... so peaceful, delicious, educational, a great group of people to learn with...and the chefs - Elisa and Marco were fun and fantastic. We started the day by a nice drive out of Rome into the Village to Shop. This gave us time to meet the rest of the group...and get acquainted. It was a small group 8... At the quaint apartment, it is so quiet and adorable. Fresh herbs on the patio, sounds of the river below... so peaceful. The class was top notch... we learned so many little tips on herbs, sauce making, pasta making...and the food and wine...and the timing of everything was perfect. We were served at the dining table and had dessert that we made as well... and around 2:30, we took our last photos... and headed back to the city where we said our goodbyes with hugs and best wishes for our group members. You will not disappointed in your daytour... and hope it is as memorable for you as it was for us.
Great fun, loved the chef and sou both entertaining, educational and funny. Would love to do it again.
We loved this tour! The chef and driver/assistant were both fun and informative. The food was delicious!
This was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We experienced and learned authentic Italian cooking in a private setting and in a real Italian countryside house. The Chef and Sioux Chef who served as the driver also were very friendly, fun, and true professionals. Our teenage kids thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We highly recommend this tour if you are looking for something off the beaten path.
This is one of the best activities money could buy. It was so much fun creating and eating the meal.
This was my favorite tour of my 2 week trip to Italy. We were picked up by our very nice driver in Rome and taken to the small town of Mazzano Romano where we met our chef and went shopping in the small town.I thought the chef should include us more in the shopping, as we were awkwardly standing around while she spoke with the shop keepers. Loved seeing the local stores though. The cooking class was wonderful and we made three different types of pasta, pizza, a tomato salad, chicken and then peaches for dessert. We drank wine while we cooked and ate and the chef was wonderful. Our favorite part was getting to know our fellow travelers and eating with them. There were only 5 of us on the tour and it was nice that it was small and intimate. I would recommend the tour as it was our favorite day!!
Great experience...our chef Elise and driver/Sous chef Marco were very enjoyable...wonderful location- a taste for a true Italian village/ cooking experience...we had a small group of 6- can't wait to try the recipes! Recommend for couples!
This was an awesome experience. There were only 8 people in our cooking class in a small medieval village. We made three different types of pasta with three different sauces as well as a marinated chicken dish with veggies. There was wine, fun, and delicious food. We would highly recommend this to anyone, especially couples!
What a brilliant and fun experience we had at our cooking lesson - it was the highlight of our time in Rome.
Marco picked us up from a central meeting point and drove us to the very picturesque village via a couple of food markets where we met Chef Elisa and picked out our produce to cook with.
Upon arrival Marco put on music and opened wine and then we proceeded to cook whilst sipping on our vino. Elisa and Marco were so knowledgeable and fun to cook with. We found the class was very hands on with everyone being given tasks to undertake to produce the end products. The rolling of the pasta sheets was hilarious and everyone was involved in the rolling process.
During the course of the day we made potato pizza, basil pesto, tomato sauce, three types of pasta, veal saltimbocca and because it was such a hot day Pannacotta instead of tiramasu.
At the end of the cooking we all sat down at the dining table and ate our creations course by course until we could barely move we were so full. At the end of the lesson Marco drove us all back to Rome.
We are foodies who love cooking but this class would suit anyone from non-cooks through to professionals with lots of really handy tips.
We highly recommend this class to anyone who want to learn how to cook real Italian pasta and sauces.
