Would you like to know more about the Italian culinary tradition?
Roma caput Mundi, the Latin refers to the greatness of the Roman Empire, at that time the crossroads of all world political, economic, and cultural activity. Today, this expression still represents the magnificence of the Italian capital among its ancient ruins and the vestiges of a past civilization that is indelible in the identity of the city itself; among its ancient art, Renaissance masterpieces, modern architecture, but also among its alleys, breathtaking views, the voice of its people, and its perfumes and flavors.
Yes! Because Rome tastes good… in every corner of the city one is pervaded by the smells coming from the houses of the Romans or the restaurants – the renowned “trattorias”. Visiting it is not only about exploring ancient architecture or diving into the immortal art of the great masters. It’s also about taking a closer look into the art of eating.
To get an idea of authentic Italian culture, learning to cook with the locals and mastering ingredients, techniques, and the secrets of the gastronomic tradition is the best way. After all, eating is one of the most enjoyable things in life. So, what could be a better souvenir than learning the perfect recipes and rituals of an appreciated cuisine like the Italian one to impress family and friends once back home? Get ready to get your hands dirty in an Italian kitchen led by experienced professional chefs… and then treat yourself to an indulgent meal of your culinary creations, while enjoying a good glass of wine, in good company.

Italians do it better... this is what pop star Madonna declared overbearingly many years ago wearing a t-shirt with this phrase printed on it. But what is it that they do best?
