I am an expert in Roman cuisine. I have attended several courses and now entertaining my small classes since 3 .
I teach typical Roman dishes and also allow my "students" to know some historical facts about the plates we shall be preparing. I specialize in first dishes (pasta) but will explore also some meat dishes and talk about the historical or curious facts about each dish.
I am happy to agree with my guests on menus if restricted by religion or diet.
The wine we will drink are chosen by a sommelier and are local from the rural part of Rome where I shall host my guest.

This was a really amazing experience. Having Italian dinner with Italian people in an Italian house is what you need to do. Luca and Guilia were amazing people who are very warm and friendly. Helping with preparing and cooking while enjoying a wine and a chat about anything was very nice. Having dinner and enjoying the food and drinks together was really great, while knowing more about each other. And at the end we unexpectedly had a little detour to see Rome by night by our own private tour guide Luca. Thanks for having and taking care of us.

Giulia and Luca were great hosts! We had interesting conversations while cooking (Giulia event made special accomodations so that we could prepare some hand made pasta) and eating. My girlfriend and I left super full and happy. :)

We had a wonderful day learning to cook an authentic Roman meal in their beautiful home. Both Luca & Giulianna were warm, welcoming & amazing chefs. My daughter & I feel like we made new friends today. Plus our meal was amazing!

Our hosts were extremely accommodating, picking us up at our apartment and returning us after our experience. Giulia and Luca were very welcoming and kind. They made us feel like they were welcoming us as guests into their home. Their expertise in cooking and explanations about the origins of the foods we were having were engaging, entertaining and informative. The entire time we were with this wonderful couple was so much fun and we all felt so comfortable. We are definitely going to remember our experience and will be trying out the recipes we learned when we return home.

My younger daughter is still impressed! Italy is beautiful, sightseeing is great, but our last day with them was the bestest!!! Thank you, Giulia. Thank you, Luca!
