Overview

You’ve eaten it, loved it and now get into the heart of one of the greatest Neapolitan kitchens in Rome to learn the fine art of making some delicious pasta.

Since 1870 in Naples, three generations of the Rossi family have perfected the art of cooking and hospitality. They have developed a long tradition of quality and freshness of ingredients, and imaginative cooking where traditional methods are still honored.

Learn about pasta traditions and the different sauces that make this one of the most popular of all Italian dishes. Round off this memorable tour with a tasting of your personally-cooked pasta.

What’s more, you get a diploma for your new-found skills, which you can proudly display back home!

Itinerary

Your pasta making lesson takes place at the restaurant Via Merulana 256. This is near Ancient Rome and can be reached by Metro: Vittorio Emanuele, Bus: 714 or 16.

Arrive at the restaurant and be introduced to Chef Rossi. Three generations of the Rossi family have perfected the art of cooking and hospitality. The nautical decor of hand painted oleo-graphics on the walls, high-ceiling grotto of fishing nets, crustaceans, and a miniature three-masted schooner complete the experience of feeling you have traveled to the south of Italy, if only for a few hours!

A brief historical-cultural introduction on the traditions of the Italian Mediterranean kitchen and historic-social evolutions will be presented to you.

This will be followed by detailed instructions on the preparation of hand-made “pasta all‘uovo,” and two types of sauces.

Finally, get to taste all that delicious pasta cooked by you followed by a brief discussion on various drinks to accompany the pasta.

The cooking lesson ends with a presentation of a diploma of the restaurant attesting to your participation in the workshop.
