Full description

Join a small cooking class of a maximum of nine participants inside a real Italian pastificio (pasta factory). Learn how to make many types of pasta in a simple and infallible way. Be able to recreate the dishes at home. Make handmade pasta with three different kinds of grains. The ancient Triticum Monococcum is considered the first cereal cultivated by man, around 7500 BC. Senatore Cappelli selected by Nazareno Strampelli in 1915 disappeared in the 1960s then was rediscovered thanks to a small farmer. The gluten-free Grano Saraceno (buckwheat) flour is the third flour you will use. Receive a welcome drink and listen to an explanation of safe food cutting procedures. Create thin sheets of pasta dough colored green with spinach or brown with sour cocoa. Discover three types of ravioli and a typical Roman sauce such as carbonara, cacio e pepe, or gricia sauce. You will make one type of pasta without egg, which is vegan. Taste all of the pasta and sauces that you have made whilst sipping Italian wine.

    This is a really great cooking class that will teach you the basics of making hand-made pasta. Emanuele and Angelo are very experienced and knowledgeable. The atmosphere in the class is professional but lots of fun as well. They learned everyone’s name and showed lots of individual attention. I was the only solo person in the class but I never felt left out. I would highly recommend this class!!

    This experience was the best thing we did on our trip to Rome. The whole time we were there we had so much fun and Emanuele and all of his staff are so lovely. It was such great craic and after learning how to make the pasta from scratch we all sat down and ate our meal with wine and everything! It was such great value for money and could not recommend this experience enough.

    This experience was amazing. Don’t think twice, book it. Emanuelle is so generous and cares about cooking. I had no clue what I was doing as a first time chef and he was warm and helpful every step. Absolutely worth it. When word gets out, you won’t be able to book with Emanuelle. Don’t hesitate, this was the best thing we did in Rome!
