My wife and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary while we participated in this wonderful event. It was a bit of a ride to Mazzano Romano, but it was worth it for the beautiful view from the apartment where our chef led the eight guest in our cooking class. Prior to arriving there, we shopped at the local butcher shop and market. With supplies in tow, we walked up to the beautiful apartment where the chef and her assistant first showed us how to make a simple pizza with various toppings and then several tricks for making pasta several different ways, All the activities were supported with many laughs and plenty of wine. We sat together for a multi-course feast with more wine and laughter. We napped on the ride back with full bellies and a great memory.

This was an awesome experience. There were only 8 people in our cooking class in a small medieval village. We made three different types of pasta with three different sauces as well as a marinated chicken dish with veggies. There was wine, fun, and delicious food. We would highly recommend this to anyone, especially couples!

It was a wonderful cooking experience. I went with my grandson who really enjoyed the village and the cooking. I lucked out to a small class of 3. It would be crowded with more than 4. Monica our instructor was great. Hotel pick up was no problem, the taxi took us to meeting place.

I and 3 friends (and another couple) had the most fantastic day. We saw a part of Rome that we would never have visited and had a great time making pasta for our lunch. Definitely go again.

What a fabulous day! My daughter and I were in Rome for her birthday and spent a day with the team in Mazzano Romano. The instructions and ingredients were both amazing. We managed to cook some amazing food and spent the day cooking, laughing and drinking wine. The chef was both casual and focused and kept us focused so that we got the most of the experience. From shopping for ingredients, the amazing medieval town and eating the simple feast we made it was a great experience...one for the books!

This was the highlight of our trip. Eliza, the chef and the driver sous chef were both so fun and enjoyable. I am a good home chef and of Italian decent yet I learned several new things and can't wait to try them. The other couple that was on the tour was great and the food was amazing! My husband is actually excited about making pasta now. Highly recommend this tour

I have been on cooking tours in Florence, Barcelona, and Lima. All were terrific, but this one is way above those! Reasons: Number of dishes - 4 kinds of thin crust pizza (onions, potato,tomato with fresh mozzarella, and porchetta), tagliatelle with mushroom and sausage ragout, gnocchi with freshly made tomato sauce, ravioli filled with ricotta, zucchini, a little mint, with a cream sauce with truffle oil, saltimbocca (veal with prosciutto, sage and cheese), asparagus with pancetta, then chocolate molten cake. And we made it all (8 of us). The setting was a remote Medieval Village with visits to a butcher for veal, a deli for pancetta, prosciutto and cheese, and a market for fresh tomatoes, asparagus, mushrooms. the wine flowed the whole time (Red from Tuscany and White from Sardinia). Great group (7 foodies and a husband who become one during the day). Some said it was the best meal they have had in Italy. It was that good. I was so full, I did not have dinner that night (other than some gelato). Best of all, our Chef Alisa who was funny, highly skilled, and patient. There are other positives, but I will stop here. You get the message! It was my best cooking adventure ever. I have been home three days and have already made fresh pasta and pizza for the family. Not quite as good, but I will work on it.

Our experience was fantastic. We were picked up from our hotel in Rome and then dropped back very close to our hotel in Rome. The day was fun and our guide for the day was absolutely lovely. She was very warm and welcoming. We cooked and chatted about food, family life and lifestyles in Italy and Australia. Even though I am Italian and cook a lot I still learnt a lot and enjoyed the day very much. We loved the food we cooked. We couldn't finish eating it all. We would highly recommend this day out.
