There are 4 pastas you cannot leave Rome without tasting: Carbonara, Amatriciana, Gricia and Cacio & Pepe. You can either try them on our 90-Minute The 4 Roman Pastas Tasting tour or learn to make the sauces from scratch at our Half Day Market, Cooking Class and Lunch.
Like all locals do, before cooking we need to stop at the local market to buy the main ingredients. Our guide will walk you through the colors and flavors of the seasonal produce. Meet the local vendors and taste the products they display with such pride.
After the market, make yourself at home in our exclusive private location with a view of Rome like none you have seen before. Our local Chef will share the tips and tricks of each recipe as you help prepare the 4 classic Roman pasta sauces. Learn about the many different pasta shapes we have in Italy, how to select and pair them to sauces and which are the shapes used for the classic Roman pastas. You will also be making tiramisù for dessert.
Once the sauces are done, the pasta is ready to be tossed into the simmering water and the tiramisù is cooling in the fridge, make yourself comfortable in the dining room and savor the fruits of your hard work. Wine and moka pot coffee will join you for lunch. All the recipes are going home with you.
This is such a fun way to spend a half day cooking, eating and drinking in Rome!
