    A Market Walk and Private Cooking Class

A Market Walk and Private Cooking Class

  • City: Rome
  • Duration: Approximately 4 hours (included cooking lesson - 3 hours)

This half-day lesson in Rome’s Prati district combines a market visit with the hands-on preparation of an authentic, multi-course Roman meal.


One of the most accurate stereotypes about Italy is that the "Italians don't eat to live, they live to eat!" And Romans eat (and cook) with a special brio that is also expressed in the city's vibrant and colorful markets. This half-day lesson combines a market visit with the hands-on preparation of an authentic, multi-course Roman meal.

You will meet your instructor, a native Roman, at his professional school in the Prati neighborhood of Rome and accompany him to an eclectic Roman market. He'll show you how to navigate the market stalls without getting flustered, how to purchase just what you need and how to use these same ingredients to prepare tasty and characteristic dishes.

Then you'll return to the school to prepare and enjoy a traditional Roman meal, using the fresh ingredients you found at the market. You will learn the secrets of Italian cuisine while having fun with people that share your passion for food. And you'll realize that you have paid not only for an excellent class, but also for an exquisite meal!
