Chef in a Day - Cooking classes in Rome

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide, a professional chef, at Piazza Farnese in central Rome and discuss the day’s menu before setting off to the Campo de' Fiori market to shop for fresh ingredients.

    Enjoy a glimpse of typical Italian life as you explore the bustling marketplace and browse the colorful stalls. Listen as your guide explains the seasonal produce, herbs, and spices on sale and help select the meat, vegetables, and cheeses that you use in your cooking class.

    Next, head to your cooking space for the day, an open-plan apartment in the heart of Rome’s Trastevere district, and set to work. Your cooking class is 100% hands-on and you learn to make fresh pasta from scratch, plus chopping the vegetables, blending the sauces and presenting the dishes.

    Create three equally delicious pastas—a stuffed pasta, a long pasta, and a short-medium pasta—accompanied by 3 different sauces. That’s not all: prepare a second course of meat, a vegetable side dish, and an indulgent dessert. Along the way, master traditional techniques and pick up expert tips to help you recreate your favorite dishes back home.

    Finally, sit down in the dining area to enjoy your home-cooked feast, accompanied by a selection of Italian wines. Your tour ends after lunch and you are given the recipes to take home with you.
