Pasta & Dolce

A pasta and dessert cooking lesson in Rome.

Have you always dreamed of making pasta from scratch like a pro?

On this cooking lesson, guests are welcomed into their chef’s home or professional kitchen studio for a hands-on traditional Italian meal, focused on freshly rolled pasta and homemade desserts. 

During the relaxed lesson, guests learn about different types of flour and get those hands warmed up by mixing, rolling, cutting and shaping the fresh pasta dough.

But no meal is complete without dessert. Students also learn to prepare and savor Italian dolce.

The class ends with a convivial meal savoring the dishes prepared together with their cook.

    We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!
