There’s really no way to put into words how amazing this experience was, Fortuna was so kind. She has a great knowledge and love of traditional Italian food and loves to share that knowledge! She even taught me how to make homemade croissants while I was there and sent me the recipe 💕 I can not wait to go home and cook these dishes for my kids and hopefully one day return with them and take another class with Fortuna ☺️

Cette expérience est à faire pour deux raisons : parce que c’est hyper ludique et cool de savoir faire de vraies pâtes, mais aussi par ce que Fortuna est exceptionnelle ! Disponible, chaleureuse et à une vraie passion pour la gastronomie ! Je recommande les yeux fermés !

Cooking with Fortuna was our favorite activity we did during our trip to Rome. She was extremely thoughtful and friendly. My boyfriend is a pescatarian and doesn’t eat cheese. She showed us how to prepare an entirely separate meal for him in addition to a meal with meat and cheese for myself. We made both ravioli and fettuccine and pistachio gelato (my favorite). It was very hands on and Fortuna made sure we did most of the cooking ourselves. We can’t wait to go home and try the recipes ourselves!

Fortuna was an amazing host . Her food is so delicious and the way of making it was so easy. I learned how cook pasta and gelato in just a few hours while she was guiding us . And also she has a sense of humor and could tell Italian jokes. Not to mention that she was really patient with us. Grazie Chef

We had a wonderful time at Fortuna’s. She was welcoming to our family and made sure that the children were included in the process. Everything was well-timed, and the final results were delicious and plentiful!

The most amazing experience <3 I would say, one of our highlights from visiting Rome. Before booking I was considering other cooking experiences but I'm glad we decided to book Fortuna's cooking class. She is a heartwarming person :) and she really knows what she is doing in the kitchen. Even my boyfriend who doesn't cook at all enjoyed this experience! With Fortuna's help we made incredibly delicious pasta and ice cream, with some traditional cake which Fortuna let us to try. Couldn't be more satisfied :)
