What you'll do

Poor yourself a drink (or two) and join me for a class on how the Romans spend their afternoons or why the aperivito is such a well known aspect of the life of every Italian.

In the first part of the session I will teach you how to prepare your own aperitivo alongside with me. We will add the details in a successive order so please make sure you have all the details at hand. You will learn how to make the best aperitivo; the traditional way! Discover the different variations of this traditional Italian beverage. Bring the ambiance of Rome into your home and join me during this interactive, online experience.

In the second part of the session, while enjoying the delicious aperitivo I will talk to you about my love for gastronomy and cooking, because it is my life. I can explain what combination of ingredients make the best combination for a delicious carbonara. I will be more than happy to answer all your questions about the history of the Italian cuisine or any other gastronomical curiosities or inquiries you may have.

Hi, I'm Razvan, and together with my friend Gabi, we offer this experience on Airbnb. We are a dynamic duo, and I take care of answering your questions and the planning, while Gabi is the awesome local host that will take you on the tour.

I am Gabi, a proud Roman, and also a graphic designer and a professional tour leader for gastronomical experiences.

I'm in love with all the beautiful things like art, architecture, music, dance, and nature but my biggest passion is Italian food and wine culture. I love to share what I know with the new people that I meet and that's why I am offering experiences of what I've learned while living in Italy and Spain for more than 30 years.

I booked this class for my husband as an activity for Father’s Day in lockdown. It was a very enjoyable experience spending an hour with Gabi, hearing about Rome and how to prepare aperitivo and the bruschetta was delicious! Gabi was very easy to talk to, very warm, friendly and knowledgeable about Italian produce. It felt like chatting with an old friend. He was also very generous in making sure we got the full hour class even though some problems with zoom meant we started the class late. I would highly recommend!

With our family we did the Italian Aperitivo experience with Gabi. Even though traveling to Italy is a bit harder at the moment, Gabi really managed to bring some Italy to us! The experience is well structured starting with preparing the bruschetta and then the Aperitivo so everything is finished at the same time for us (and him of course) to enjoy. In the meanwhile Gabi shared a lot about Italian culture and cuisine in a really enthusiastic manner. We cannot wait to visit Rome again after Covid19! The virtual tour was even so much better than our high expectations and really worth the money. We now know the secret of making the amazing aperitivo (spoiler: Gabi's recipe is so much better than the one on the bottle) and we have applied our new skill in real life already several times :-) I can definitely recommend this virtual experience and I am even considering doing it a second time, but then with a group of friends.

Gabi is just an awesome guy! He is such an awesome guy, super lively and he also manages to gather the attention of everyone involved but also to make them participate at the same time. I would really recommend this experience to anyone willing to learn more about the Italian cuisine from an expert!

It was awesome to spend the evening preparing some simple Italian snacks & drinks with Gabi. He shared a lot of things about typical Italian food and also about the Aperitivo tradition :) The things we prepared together were delicious (bruschetta, mozarella, olives - the best!) and as a real Italian - enjoyed it with friends!
