I am an avid home chef, completely untrained yet with thirty years of kitchen adventures. My husband encouraged me to spend a day with Daniela and her assistant, Livia. I couldn't have enjoyed the combination of Daniela's culinary savvy and gracious hospitality more! For particulars on the day, I suggest reading previous reviews. The word which best describes the Gestalt is "passion". This encompasses a deep appreciation for the land, people and culture which shape Daniela's food. She possesses a unique combination of skills to transcend traditional barriers allowing this experience to become the gateway to Cucina Romana.

Great food in a relaxed environment

Daniela's cooking class was a highlight of my trip! I learnt so much about italian cooking and I can't wait to cook for my family. It was a fantastic experience that I would recommend to everyone who is traveling to Rome, especially if you love food.

The way to my heart

I love food! Usually just eating it because I am a bit intimidated by cooking complicated meals. This year the women in my family went on a trip to Rome and the main plan was attending a Cooking School. Best trip ever! I so enjoyed the hands on cooking experience as well as learning how to properly shop seasonal food. Daniela was so warm and welcoming that I felt right at home in her kitchen cooking. I left knowing that all the dishes could be made in my home. I am proud to say that I will never eat jar red sauce again thanks to Daniela. If you plan on going to Rome and you love cooking this is a MUST! Sign up for a day or two and learn authentic italian cooking.
