I'm originally from "San Marzano" (the tomato sauce's homeland) and from a family of producers of canned sauce with the " Conditalia® " brand, and extra virgin olive oil from generations, exported all around the world (90% NordAmerica)

but I continued cultivate my passion with studies in France and in Italy.

I was taught to cook only with the products my family produces, or with local and seasonal products exclusively outdoors (not in greenhouses) due to the more pronounced flavors.

I wouldn't call it a cooking class. Making sauce isn't that complicated, but it's a very nice way to spend the day cooking together. He's a great host and the apartment is great!

Super fantastisk oplevelse. Man lærer om den italienske kultur og føler sig en del af fællesskabet. Andrea er god til vise og fortælle dig teknikken bag de lækre saucer. Det er en enestående oplevelse. Hvis du elsker mad og vil være den del af den italienske kultur skal man helt klart booke denne oplevelse.

We had the most wonderful time with Andrea. He made us feel so welcome and definitely taught us some great recipes to take home with us. I would absolutely send any friends to take the grandmas sauce class with Andrea!

This was an incredible opportunity to learn to cook in an authentically Italian way. Andrea was a great host and the rooftop kitchen was a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. Of all the delicious food I had in Rome, the meals cooked with Andrea were by far the best and I’m looking forward to recreating them when I go home (especially the meatballs)! I highly recommend this experience!

Andrea’s experience was a wonderful way to spend a few hours. He is both knowledgeable and incredible passionate about tomatoes and Italian food. His enclosed terrace kitchen was a perfect place to learn the set of making tomato sauces. The instructions were clear; his teaching style was very accessible. The whole experience was warm, welcoming, and thoroughly enjoyable. I highly recommend it.

Andrea is an excellent chef, giving us a lot of advice that only experts may know, sharing anecdotes and most important: involving us as much as possible in the preparation! The food was delicious (best tomato sauce I've had in my life), the place was great (rooftop terrace in a beautiful neighboorhood) and we had a perfect time there! I will definitely come back next time I go to Rome!
