Itinerary

When in Rome, a cooking class is a must-do!
Take a break from sightseeing and learn how to cook a traditional Roman dinner from scratch.
Meet your host in the stunning Piazza Mattei, in the heart of the Jewish Ghetto of Rome.
Don’t let the name “Ghetto” scare you, though: this is one of the safest and most charming areas in town, beloved by locals and full of history.
Nowadays Rome’s Jewish Ghetto no longer officially exists, yet the neighborhood is still called by its old name and it’s still the heart of the Roman Jewish community, the oldest in Italy.
The city’s 19th-century synagogue, called The Temple, is located in the area. There’s also plenty of amazing restaurants and bakeries around, selling kosher and traditional Jewish-Roman food.
Chef Paola will await for us, ready to disclose recipes and tricks: this is a hands-on class, but if you prefer you can simply relax with a glass of wine and watch her while she cooks.
Either way, you’ll learn how to make gnocchi pasta from scratch, how vegetables are fried in the local tradition and how Roman grandmas fed their kids with no-fuss homemade treats.
In Rome, seasonality counts: that’s why you’ll learn how to prep and fry Jewish-style artichokes in winter and zucchini flowers or other in-season veggies during summertime.
And at the end of the lunch, you’ll taste ciambelline al vino, a local crunchy cookie made out of four simple ingredients (spoiler: one is wine).
The cooking class will last for about 3 hours and will take place in a cozy room of an ancient building: it’s an experience that’s at any age.
