Rome Walking Tour & Pasta Making

Summary

Our Rome for Foodies tour will introduce you to the best food and wine Rome has to offer.

Your culinary adventure will begin at Campo di Fiori market, Rome’s historic food market. In a historic bakery, you will see how Rome’s typical ‘Taglio al Forno’ is made. Choose from an array of pizza slices adorned with seasonal and local toppings. Also discover one of Rome’s best food treats: the supplì, a fried rice ball oozing with mozzarella cheese. There will also be tastings of salami and cheese in Rome’s most exquisite delis.

Then onto a 17th-century palace, set behind Piazza Navona, where you will learn the artisanal craft of fresh pasta making with a professional chef. You will then enjoy the fresh pasta you have prepared as an elegant lunch under a beautiful frescoed ceiling. To finish there will be a hot shot of espresso, Tiramisù or gelato, and a refreshing limoncello! Take the opportunity to chat with your guide and learn all about Roman food culture and Italian culinary traditions.

    We had a lovely culinary tour of Rome culminating in a cooking class where we made fresh pasta. Our guide, Gloria, was knowledgeable and charming and we had a great time. Highly recommended.

    We signed up for the 'foodie' food tour and cooking class. We started off with a tour of the Campo de Fiori market, tasting some of the local goods, looking at all of the produce and beautiful colours. From there, we had some fresh cheeses (stracciatella - omg, parmesan, pecorino), followed by visiting the local norcineria (beautiful cured pork products), and a popular pizza joint. We were the only 2 on the tour, which helped make it intimate yet allowed us to ask all the questions we wanted! I liked how our guide (the owner, I forgot her name!) was familiar with all of the workers and they just chatted like old friends all the time. Following that we went to their beautiful teaching kitchen, where Chef Filippo taught our class of 5 how to make tiramisu from scratch, as well as homemade pasta dough for ravioli and fettucine. It was an interactive class and great fun - the meal we cooked was one of our favourites in Rome. Overall it took us around 4 hours for both activities.
