For us learning”culinary arts” starts with a good wine.
We serve you local but internationally recognised and prized wines, on the house, for you to start your “cooking course” in a good mood.

Classes always begin with a traditional starter accompanied by a chilled, typically Umbrian, white wine from the Grechetto vineyard. Pale yellow in colour, this wine has a distinctive, intense, fruity taste which lingers harmoniously on the palate. A ruby coloured red wine, tasting of berries and coming from the Ciliegiolo vineyard, is served to accompany first courses, cold cuts and cheeses.

And then of course there is the basis of Italian cuisine, extra virgin olive oil, the only oil that we use in our kitchen, for our recipes, in your own creations and of course on your favourite bruschetta!

Weekend cookery course

A weekend of real Italian cuisine in a real Italian family. To give your “Roman Holiday” a spark come and learn how to prepare a traditional Sunday lunch and how to shop for it the day before. Saturday morning is spent shopping in Val Melaina market, the biggest and most famous food market in northern Rome, used by all those who appreciate quality matched with cost.

This farmer’s market provides the opportunity to learn how to choose and buy all necessary ingredients for a traditional weekend meal. Tradition dictates that Romans eat trippa (tripe) on Saturdays, it’s a workman’s dish but very flavoursome.

Therefore we will choose together the right piece of tripe (it isn’t easy to recognise the best!) and buy the most appropriate pecorino cheese and mint. Those who don’t appreciate the “fifth quarter”, can choose saltimbocca alla romana or classical meatballs in tomato sauce.

We will also buy ingredients for Sunday lunch, which inevitably includes baked pasta! Timballo, sformato, or lasagna, depending on the season and the Chef’s wishes. You will be told secret ways to make a real meat sauce that, taking six hours to cook, will be prepared on Saturday and consumed the next day.

On Sunday morning homemade pasta and bechamel sauce will be prepared . The dessert, as tradition dictates, will be tiramisù with fresh mascarpone or goat ricotta whipped to a mousse with chocolate or with mandarin jam made from fruits from the family garden.

This is one of the pleasures that Spaghetti in the Family offers you: you can enjoy Italian cuisine comforted by the spring sunshine in one of the few private gardens in the city, or in the summer eating in the shade of a large walnut tree or a fragrant magnolia tree.

Time:

  • Saturdays from 10:00 to 15:00 or 17.00 to 22.00
  • Sundays from 10:00 to 15:00 or 17.00 to 22.00

Membership Fee per person from 150€

Italian Master Chef in 5 days

Italian Master Chef is our most comprehensive cookery course. Five mornings are dedicated to Italian cuisine beginning with our starters followed by traditional fish, meat and side dishes, and concluding with desserts. The first introductory lesson focuses on the basics of cooking,  from quality olive oil to the choice of ingredients. The second lesson (Tuesday) starts with a visit to the market, source of all fresh and authentic ingredients for our homemade recipes.

Val Melania market, less than a kilometer away from our school, is one of the largest and most popular markets in the capital, used by Romans from the northern areas. Tuesday’s shopping focuses on vegetables and flavorings as well as fish, which are the ingredients for our seafood first courses, macaroni with mussels and beans, spaghetti with clams, etc. and for a main fish dish to be prepared the following day.

The focus of Wednesday’s lesson is on handmade pasta and the main fish course. Fettuccine, maltagliati (mixed shapes of pasta), quadrucci (square shaped pasta) are prepared as well as potato and semolina gnocchi.  Thursday’s lesson again starts  with shopping at Val Melaina market, this time to buy meat and vegetables.

Preparing a cut of meat which needs marinating allows aspiring chefs to learn the secrets of complex dishes that take two days to prepare. The next day, which is the last day of Italian Master Chef, is dedicated to preparing a handmade first course (ravioli, cannelloni, lasagne) followed by a main meat dish. Each day concludes with tasting sessions of desserts, homemade for the Baratta family’s feasts and celebrations.
