What you'll do
NEW RECIPES!!!!! Our experience is a "learning by doing" class in a relaxed and familiar atmosphere. The objective is to teach our hosts 3 sauces for pasta, which come from the history of the italian cuisine tradition. At the moment the sauces that we propose are: "Amatriciana", "Puttanesca Marta's style" and either "Cacio e Pepe" or "Pasta with beans". We also welcome PRIVATE GROUPS and we are happy to try to satisfy requests regarding other sauces recipes . Before cooking we suggest a quick tour in a fresh food market nearby if our guests are interested. Then we go to Marta's apartment and we offer something to drink and start knowing each other. Then we explain what we are going to do and let our new friends start cooking! While the sauces cook, we suggest how to make some easy, fast and delicious appetizers. We will eat everything together sitting at the table, chatting and tasting some good italian wine. In the end we'll have a cup of italian coffee served with a touch of sweetness! Our hosts will be given all the recipes written so that they won't forget anything of our experience!!!
