You'll be able to make traditional Italian pasta such as Ravioli and Fettuccine and other pasta shapes too.
Using only the freshest ingredients, I'll also show you how to prepare the famous roman sauces: Amatriciana, Carbonara, and Cacio & Pepe.

Of course, after cooking, we'll enjoy what we have prepared in a genuine Italian meal all together with complimentary wine and coffee ;)

Hello everyone!
My name is Riccardo, I am 25 years old, I have a degree in Food and Wine Sciences & Cultures from the University of Roma Tre. I love cooking, I learned with my mother and my two "nonnas" (grandmothers).
After high school, I traveled around the world (Africa, Portugal, Spain) for a year to understand what I wanted to do with my life. Back in Rome, I decided to start studying cooking: I attended the Italian Chef Academy in Rome (and obtained the HACCP for food safety) and then moved to some Roman restaurants where I went from theory to practice.
Today I teach how to make homemade pasta and at the same time, I'm a WSA Sommelier and would like to start a new experience about wine tasting.

I booked this as a present for my friends and they really loved it! They said the class and the food was great, and that Riccardo was really good company. They also felt very safe COVID- wise. They now want to go back again and try risotto..

This experience with Riccardo was amazing. He is a very friendly person and an outstanding, knowledgeable instructor. We brought our two-year-old daughter with us and he was great with her as well! I highly recommend taking any of his classes. We even bought an Atlas 150 manual pasta machine from him! Next time we are in Rome, I would gladly have him teach us another authentic Italian recipe!

Riccardo is the man! He was a fantastic host - knowledgeable, talented, personable and interesting. I was impressed by his ability to communicate in multiple languages and keep the class engaged the entire time. While I learned a lot and cooked more than I could eat, the class still felt casual, which I was hoping for. Highly recommend!

We had a very pleasant evening with Riccardo. My girlfriend and I immediately felt comfortable with him. We were able to learn a lot about the traditional types of pasta, how to make them and of course how to prepare the necessary sauces in an entertaining way. If you visit Rome, I can highly recommend Riccardo, because you can learn a lot in the 3.5 hours and he is a very nice person. Thanks a lot. Philipp
