Learn authentic Italian pasta from local cooking experts and professional chefs
The typical cuisine of Rome, the so-called “Cucina Romana”, counts some types of legendary recipes among its repertoire. However, one thing that can never be missing from the Roman table is pasta, even if it nowadays appears on the tables of many other countries. Carbonara is, without doubt, the most famous one, but in fact, the Eternal City has gifted the world another three of the most delicious pasta dishes: Cacio e Pepe, Amatriciana, and Gricia. They are hearty dishes that have in common a Roman typical ingredient, “guanciale” (pork cheek), that is produced abundantly in the Roman countryside, and they are also made unique by the dusting of the mighty “Pecorino Romano”.
Simple though they seem, these dishes are hard to cook. Local chefs are measured in their ability to do them well. Each of these kinds of pasta has garnered a cult status – they are bold, delicious, and characterful, reflecting the very nature of Roman culture. Now you can see how Italian chefs prepare their pasta from scratch and how you can reproduce it, by learning all about the different ingredients, techniques, and history of the delicious Roman pasta dishes, and then amaze your family and friends when you get home.
