Rome Cooking Class With Local Market Experience & Pasta Making

A very special Roman cooking experience where you will visit our incredible local markets with a native chef to source the finest fresh ingredients before hitting the kitchen to cook up a storm!

  • Guided visit to Trionfale market
  • Choose the finest locally sourced food
  • Learn how to hand-make pasta
  • Cook your ingredients with a native chef
  • ALL food and wine included

The Ultimate Rome Cooking Class Experience

First off, you will visit one of the best local markets in Rome: the Mercato Trionfale. Learn how a true Roman cook sources the best produce, what the most popular recipes are and their history, how Roman cuisine differs to other regional Italian cuisines, and how to literally separate the ‘wheat from the chaff’ to buy the best possible produce.

Amidst the bustling market, as you weave your way in and around the stalls and the numerous locals doing their weekly shopping, you’ll feel like part of the tapestry of daily Roman life. Experiencing the sensation that you’re living in a city rather than visiting is a luxury in itself and your private chef will help you fit right in.

Explore Traditional Roman Markets With Your Guide

Share a joke or two with the vendors and attune your ear to the sing-song of romanesco, the dialect of the city. Be tempted by the multi-colour palette of both the charismatic Romans and the fruits and vegetables on offer.

At the market you will eye up, taste, and purchase the ingredients for your lunch and then head to a professional local kitchen, but not before taking a leisurely stroll through the beloved district of Prati, often thought of as one of Rome’s best kept secrets with its artisan boutiques, uptown shops, hip wine bars, and all-around casual elegance. It’ll also help you work up an appetite for the cooking and eating that awaits!

Pasta Making & Cooking Class

Once you hit the kitchen, you will learn in the cooking class how to make hand-made pasta from scratch as well as a selection of other dishes (based on seasonality) while cooking with local Roman wine…you might even put some in the food! 

When you’re ready to say buon appetito, you’ll be sure to confirm the theory that a meal tastes better if you make it with passion!

Make sure you come hungry and ready to put your ‘mani in pasta’ ‘your hands in the dough’ during this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience! During our week in Rome in July, Amy and her fabulous assistants Irenes P and V put together two wonderful tours for us. Our first was a tour of the Vatican Museum accompanied by our guide Jessica, the second to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum with Letizia. Both guides were knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. We all got a lot out of the tours - it’s so much better than wandering around by yourselves. Discovering secret messages in famous art works or having centuries old graffiti pointed out is just thrilling. It’s also fabulous bypassing the queues and having air-conditioned transfers to and from the sites. We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience.
