What you'll do

Discover Rome from a local perspective by joining me, a Roman native, on a normal day in the life of a Roman. First, we will explore the Testaccio Market and I will introduce you to some of my favorite vendors, specialized in local ingredients. Once we have everything we need for lunch, we will continue to my home and embark on a fun-filled, hands-on cooking class. I’ll share with you some of my favorite family recipes and guide you through the preparation of a delicious and authentic Roman meal. And then it’s time to celebrate all of our hard work! We will sit for a nice lunch of all the prepared dishes, perfect with a few glasses of Italian wine.

I was born in the heart of Rome in the emblematic neighborhood Trastevere's and grown up between Fetucine and Gnochi. My mother use to own a restaurant and we love cooking! I have travelled the world and worked in England and Spain until attracted by my roots and family I returned to my natal city. I am the typical Roman street wander, ready to share the places and experiences that the eternal city has to offer.

Where you'll be

In my opinion, there is no better way to really get to know the city than by visiting one of its most authentic markets, shopping for local ingredients and preparing a classic recipe from the place. This is exactly what we will do during this 4-hour market tour and cooking class. I’ll teach you the secrets to cooking some of my favorite dishes and then sit to enjoy a nice lunch together in my home.

This was truly a wonderful experience. We had an excellent time. Our host was an cook and teacher. She treated us like family. we enjoyed our lesson and our lunch was the best we had on our travels. And I am happy to say that I was able to follow her recipe and directions once I returned home and was very pleased with the results.

It was a highlight of our trip! We learned how to make gnocchi and tiramisu- and Patrizia made stuffed eggplant for us (our requests). Ivano met us at the market and answered all of our questions. They were both so genuinely hospitable it was lovely. They also gave us recommendations to see the Aventine Hill and keyhole view of the Vatican. Grazie Mile!
