While in Rome… eat, pray, love and cook!

Since the beginning of the times, every traveller had one main goal: to experience, to create memories of emotions lived during the travel, to come into contact with local culture, local traditions and learn about local habits.

If you think about visiting Italy, and especially Rome, among the first things you might have on your check-list are: the Colosseum , the Vatican together with the Sistine Chapel, and you will be surely looking forward to taste delicious Italian food!

The food, by all means, is the best way to live an extraordinary experience and bring back home vivid memories.

We have already written here about Italian coffee, Italian (Sicilian) chocolate and about the worldwide famous Italian pasta.

We from City Lights have thought about our future guests who might like to experience a little bit more and among different options of Cooking classes and Food tours, we actually decided to offer you all of this in one tour.

We are sure that the most intriguing part of this new City Lights tours package will be this Cooking class that will have maximum 8 participants.

It will be, at the same time, easy and exciting to follow this fantastic experience.

Your chef, who is fully licensed, professional and accredite, will lead and follow you from the very start to the very end of this experience.

First, you will meet him at one of the most characteristic and authentic markets of Rome where you will start to collect all the necessary ingredients. You will see what kind of tomatoes Italians use for each recipe (and believe it or not there are dozens of types of tomatoes, each for different dish), you will visit a so-called Salsamenteria where you can discover the most typical kinds of cheese, cold cuts of meat and all characteristic Italian delicacies and you will also visit a typical Italian butcher where we will collect some of the ingredients for our recipes.

Then, together with the Chef you will reach his studio in Trastevere and the real discover will start. While you will be preparing pasta on your own and while he will be looking after each and every participant, he will start to reveal the most important secrets of the every-day cooking. You will be surprised of how many things you will learn and how easy can be to implement these small secrets for an easier life!

The Cooking Class will include preparation of: three types of pasta, a main dish and a dessert.

While you’ll be starting to get more self-confidence by preparing your (probably first in your lifetime) dough, the chef will offer a taste of some special red or white wine and if you’re lucky you will have a chance to taste special artisanal olive oil (of his own production).

Before the pasta will be ready to be cooked, you will also prepare a main dish (meat or fish) and during this preparation process you will discover some simple, small secrets that will add more to your discovery of why the Italian cuisine is so famous.

As soon as you finished preparing your pasta, the cooking process will start and you will finally taste your own creation. The sauce prepared by all the participants will be combined with pasta and the lunch will be ready to be served.

The complete meal, prepared by you and other participants, under the attentive eye of the chef, will be served and accompanied by an excellent wine.

The dessert, that Italians are going proud of, will also be part of this cooking/tasting class and you will see how with few ingredients you can make an excellent, typically Italian, dessert.

Your Cooking Class – Tasting experience will not come alone.
