Your journey begins worry-free, as we pick you up from your central Rome hotel and take care of all the logistics. Enjoy the scenery on the hour-long drive to the charming Medieval village of Mazzano Romano, a town of around 2,700 residents which lies 35 kilometers north of Rome.
Here, your small group will become acquainted with your chef and teacher. Then, we'll embark on a quest to obtain the day's ingredients, all fresh and local.
