A Memorable Evening in Rome
We booked a cooking lesson here at the end of my family's multi-generational visit to Rome over the week after Thanksgiving. The cooking school is located close to Rome's historic food market, the Campo dei Fiori--making for a pleasant walk over for our cooking class. David, the chef, managed to engage everyone in our group--and gave a thorough, professional tutorial on food preparation, cooking hygiene and knife skills in a fully entertaining way. We laughed, enjoyed wonderful hors d'oeuvres, cooked and enjoyed the school's magnificent open patio (which was comfortably heated, even in the coldest days of early December). By the end of the evening, we'd had engaging instruction, lots of laughs and a fine meal. It was a truly wonderful experience.

Adatto per rendere il soggiorno romano diverso e semplicemente unico, grazie alla ospitalità del loft ed alla professionalità dello chef David che vi insegnerà curando nei dettagli i segreti della cucina romana , facendovi sentire chef per un giorno. Eccellente il rapporto con i bambini che mostrano interesse e vengono rapiti dalla preparazione della pasta fatta in casa, da loro. Ovviamente il tutto è ancora più suggestivo in quanto accompagnato da buon vino e da un'atmosfera ben curata in ogni particolare.
Non di secondaria bellezza ed interesse, il percorso didattico del mattino attraverso l'antica Roma ed il ghetto ebraico, e l'esperienza dell'acquisto dei prodotti oggetto del menù , nel caratteristico mercato romano di Campo dei Fiori.
