Let's make pasta together!!! But first we will start by visiting the Campo de' Fiori market, my favorite farmers' market in the heart of the Historical centre near Piazza Navona. There has been an open air market for hundreds of years, a crowded, chaotic and colorful mashup of fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, cheeses and flowers. Now it's a bit different but we're really happy that lots of ancient stands are still there! Together we’ll taste Italian food, cheese and typical Roman pizza made in an historic local bakery. I'll show you many fruits and vegetables and I'll tell you how we use them for cooking delicious Italian dishes! We'll select the freshest seasonal produce before heading to my place to cook together with a lot of chatting! Hands on flour, eggs, boards and rolling pins without using machines...my Nonna would be very proud :) My suggestion is to book this Experience at the beginning of your trip because then you'll enjoy a lot my "gift" ;)
