Why Choose it?

  • Get creative and hands-on making traditional Italian cuisine.
  • Savour a full lunch made up of your handmade meal and dessert.


Your culinary journey starts at our cooking school, either at a 17th century palazzo near Piazza Navona, or at our new location just a few steps from the PantheonUpon your arrival, you will be greeted with some fresh antipasti and a glass of proseccoFrom here, we'll venture to a nearby open-air market for some fresh produce shopping. Soak up the wonderful atmosphere and locals mingle around you. Your chef will be on hand to introduce you to the market and explain all of its wonderful ingredients.

From here we'll make our way back to the palazzo. Then don your apron, take up your positions, and get ready to get creative as we start with parmigianaParmigiana is one of Italy's most beloved dishes. It's a layered dish, oozing creamy, gooey mozzarella and fleshy, locally sourced tomatoes. Parmigiana is a Sicilian speciality, traditionally made from eggplant and basil. But you can actually make parmigiana using any array of ingredients. How we make it depends on which seasonal ingredients we can get our hands on at the market. 

The same applies for gnocchi - those famous fluffy clouds of deliciousness. Gnocchi are normally made from potato, but as you will find out they can be made with other vegetables as well. Traditionally, Romans only eat gnocchi on Thursdays. For your personal masterclass, though, we'll be making an exception.

What better way to round off the cooking class than by creating a traditional Italian dessert. For this class, we'll be attempting the challenging (but oh, so rewarding) classic panna cotta.

To finish the afternoon, we'll be enjoying a lunch of all the food you made, perfectly paired with fine local wines.
