    What to Expect
    Spend an idyllic day in the Roman countryside, where you can immerse yourself in the glorious Italian tradition of cooking. Depart the city with your guide for the village of Mazzano Romano.

    When you arrive, visit the local market to shop for ingredients for your cooking class. As you browse the food stalls, learn how to spot the freshest vegetables, eggs, spices, and meat. Then head to a fully equipped kitchen, where your chef provides step-by-step instructions for preparing and cooking traditional Italian dishes.

    The small-group class ensures you’ll receive personalized attention as you help to make a traditional meal, from appetizer to dessert. Work with three different types of homemade pasta and learn how to pair dishes with the right varietal of wine to bring out the fullest flavors. When the cooking is over, sit down with your group to enjoy your meal with wine.

    With a full stomach and newfound skills, your culinary experience ends with the drive back to Rome.
