The local characters will not be forgotten, too. The departure will be from the center of Rome at 10.00 am.m. in order to give you the opportunity to relax at the hotel and enjoy a nice breakfast. After about 1 hour drive towards South East direction, you will arrive at Villa delle Magnolie, a beautiful summer in the countryside between Zagarolo and San Cesareo. This area has been known as "The Garden of Rome", thanks to its artistic treasures and beautiful medieval towns.
At the Villa, you will be greeted by Eddy and Jessica, the owners of the summer. Eddy is a world of characters in one person: artist, musician, singer, director, composer, food journalist, publisher, and professor of cinematography. His summer talks about his many stories and he will tell you the most amazing stories about his life. The real interesting part, though, is that Eddy is a real fan of Roman cuisine and, needless saying, an excellent cook! Once you arrive at the summer, he will show you the interiors and the large garden of Villa delle Magnolie, with its terrific panorama over the valley below. Then, he will show you all the vegetables that grow there and he will make you pick some of the ingredients that you are going to need for the recipes.
It is time to take action. Enter the kitchen with Eddy and immerse yourself in a full course on Roman cooking. You will learn how to eat the secrets of Italian cuisine, the best ways to eat seasonally, how to make the perfect pasta and the best suggestion for a great second course. After a charming welcoming appetizer, you can cook the typical Pasta with "Amatriciana" sauce or a fantastic "Carbonara", depending on the season. "Chicken with wine, sauce and vegetables" or "Roast lamb with potatoes". After all your efforts for preparing this delicious food ... It is time to eat! Enjoy your lunch with Eddy and Jessica, accompanied by typical local wine.
