What you can expect

You will be welcomed with a flute of Prosecco and Panzanella: a Roman appetizer made from a fresh salad of crushed bread seasoned with tomatoes, celery, olives, mint and herbs all mixed together.

In my kitchen I will explain all the ingredients, with special attention to "Roman pancetta" that is the protagonist of our recipes. I will also explain how to recognize and choose ingredients. I'll tell you how to replace ingredients if it's not available in your country, so you can prepare your new dishes at home.

Finally, we will prepare the 3 sauces that must be cooked at the same time as the pasta: that means that the preparation will be really fast, and amazingly delicious.

Please note that all the sauces are “white”, without tomatoes, as this is another characteristic of Roman cuisine.

When the dishes are ready, we will taste them in the "salotto", the living room. Enjoy a glass of red wine or water (no Coca-cola or soft drinks are available in a real Roman cuisine).

Each guest will enjoy 3 dishes, each one with a (not so) small portion of pasta. This is what we call “assaggino” - a taste of different recipes. It's just another way we love to eat pasta.

After dinner you can enjoy a nice stroll to the Colosseo and Fori Romani that are only a 5 minute walk from my home.

Hi! I'am Massimo (that's a really "roman" name) and I'm Art Director and Graphic Designer. I live in the centre of Rome, that's why I spend a lot of time just walking or cycling on the streets and places I know as the back of my hand. By the way, all my interests (art, design, cooking, etc.) are tightly related to my town that is the best "land" where I can "cultivate" them. That is why I am thrilled by the opportunity to be a local host and I am ready to show you all around!"
