What you'll do

ARE YOU READY FOR A ROMAN COOKING EXPERIENCE?
You'll be welcomed into my family home to learn the ancient and famous art of making handmade pasta. We will make pasta from scratch. We will be a maximum of 6 participants like in a real Italian family to make everything more authentic :)

You'll be able to make traditional Italian pasta such as Ravioli and Fettuccine and other pasta shapes too.
Using only the freshest ingredients, I'll also show you how to prepare the famous roman sauces: Amatriciana, Cacio & Pepe, and/or Carbonara.

Of course, after cooking, we'll enjoy what we have prepared in a genuine Italian meal all together with complimentary wine and coffee ;)

Hello everyone!
My name is Riccardo, I am 27 years old and I was born and raised in Rome.
I have a degree in Food and Wine Sciences from the University of Roma Tre. I love cooking, I learned with my mother and my two "nonnas" (grandmothers).
After high school, I traveled around the world (Africa, Portugal, Spain) for a year to understand what I wanted to do with my life. Back in Rome, I decided to start studying cooking: I attended the Italian Chef Academy in Rome (and obtained the HACCP for food safety) and then moved to some Roman restaurants where I went from theory to practice.
I started with cooking experiences two years ago, and I love them, I hosted more than 1500 people from all around the world, I'm also a WSA Sommelier and love to drink and talk about wine.

The Riccardo Cooking Class is located in Monteverde (Gianicolense area), an ancient district of Rome near Villa Pamphili park, reachable by tram and buses.

    Riccardo was an amazing host and this was the perfect experience to start my trip in Rome! The entire time Riccardo went out of his way to make you feel at home. He is extremely knowledgeable about cooking, pasta making, Italian cuisine and Rome in general. He shared all his knowledge in a fun and engaging way. I left with the confidence to be able to make handmade pasta on my own (and a very full belly). I definitely recommend this experience. It felt extremely quaint and intimate which I don't think you will find from some of the other larger commercial classes

    Riccardo’s class was the highlight of our trip and our favorite meal of the week! I wanted to book a cooking class that felt more personal rather than in a cooking school in city center and Riccardo’s apartment and personal attention really blew my expectations. This was an amazing price for being able to learn so much about the pasta making and cooking process, while being able to enjoy the meal with plenty of wine as well! Riccardo was so friendly and accommodating, you can truly tell he was born to cook and teach his craft to others. If you’re even considering booking the class, just do it, you won’t regret it and it’ll be the highlight of your trip too.
