About
Join your host Massimo in his kitchen in Rome and watch him prepare a delicious, fresh pasta dish for you. As most dishes take a long time to prepare, you will only learn to make a traditional pasta dish. A possible dish could be cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper), carbonara (egg, cheese, Italian bacon, and pepper) or amatriciana (guanciale (cured pork cheek), pecorino cheese, tomato). This is a cooking demonstration, not a hands-on cooking class - you will watch as Massimo cooks the pasta.

Cristina and her husband were wonderful hosts for my wife and I. We made fresh dough from scratch, prepared a variety of toppings and baked a number of delicious pies! They also provided some local beer, moscato, and a traditional Sicilian dessert. This was an amazing experience, we spent hours eating and sharing our cultures. Highly recommended!

Our host was Daniella, not Massimo as this post reads. She is also located in Rome.

The experience was fantastic, she was very welcoming and made the recipes accessible if you did not have much cooking experience. The dishes were thoughtful and absolutely delicious! Daniella was extremely knowledgeable and even was able to explain which ingredients you could use from your region (in our case, United States) if the authentic Italian ingredients she used were not accessible. Our group was able to learn new skills, enjoy a delicious meal, appreciate the hospitality of a Roman local and make many new memories and laughs along the way. I would highly recommend this experience!
