When in Rome, Cook as the Romans Do

‘Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti’ – Sofia Loren

Join me, native Roman Orlando as I share my passion for food and cooking on this unique insight into what it’s like to live…and eat…as a Roman. First off, you will visit one of the best local markets in Rome: the Mercato Trionfale. Learn how a true Roman cook sources the best produce, what the most popular recipes are and their history. Amidst the bustling market, as you weave your way in and around the stalls and the numerous locals doing their weekly shopping, you’ll feel like part of the tapestry of daily Roman life.Once you hit the kitchen, you will learn to make hand-made pasta from scratch as well as a selection of other dishes (based on seasonality) while cooking with local Roman wine…you might even put some in the food!

Make sure you come hungry and ready to put your ‘mani in pasta’ ‘your hands in the dough’ during this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
