We had done a cooking class a few days before, where all of the ingredients were already purchased and you start !! This tour however, takes you to the different markets where the locals are shopping..... This is definitely the way to go, what an amazing experience it was, if you want to make your own lunch with a group, this is the way to go !

This was a highlight of our trip to Rome. The chef began the event with a walk through a great outdoor market and talked a bit about her approach--which was to cook with fresh ingredients in season sourced locally. We then went to a number of specialty shops to buy the cheese, prosciutto and veal for the meal we were to prepare. The class was very well organized and the chef spoke clearly about everything we were preparing--showing us how to make the 3 types of pasta and the vegetables, main dish and dessert. I love to cook, cook a lot, and am quite good. I learned a lot and noted that people with different skill levels were all helped to learn a bit more. and our meal was great! way too much food, but we all felt we had to eat it because it was so wonderful. I can recommend this very highly.

Wonderful cooking class!!! Although it seems a bit pricey, my friend and I had the best time learning how to make pasta (and eating it later!). It was easily my favorite day in Rome :)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This was one of the best things we did in Rome, the entire experience was top-tier! The lesson took you through the start to finish process of cooking an authentic Italian meal - including visiting the market, cheese ship, butcher etc. to gather all of the items needed for the dishes. For anyone with an interest in cooking, this course is a must! The meal we cooked was absolutely delightful and one of my favorite meals in Italy.

Our teach was the best! The class was suppose to be about 5 hours but it was more like 8 hours and it was wonderful. The food was good and so was the company. Also, the owner of the cooking school has a restaurant called That's Amore, which is really good and quiet popular. I highly recommend this class!

One of our favorite memories of Rome. Changed the way I approach Italian cooking and making pasta. Fun, fun, informative, fun, engaging, fun ... oh, and did I say fun?

Great tour - my favorite thing I did in Rome. Enjoyed going to the market and shops prior. The venue/villa where the class was held was gorgeous. The size of the class 7 participants was perfect. Just the right balance of hands on cooking . Making the pasta was so much fun and a great learning experience. Plenty of good wine and great dinner to cap it off. A perfect way to spend the day and experience the culture. Definitely recommend this tour!

Had a totally great time. It was a perfect experience. The trip was very nicely planed out, and our Chef and her Assistance could not have been more helpful or informative. We were very lucky to have two delightful couples with my girlfriend and myself, one from Germany and one from Manchester. We had just the best time.....highly recommend it.
