Rome Cooking Class with Market Tour

The cooking experience was a highlight of our time in Rome. It was great to spend some time away from all the usual tourist destinations, and meet some of the residents and get a better perspective on life in this big city.
Alfredo and Nina were just super. They were friendly, very hospitable and we all had a lot of good laughs during the afternoon. Alfredo took us on a nice walk around the neighborhood as we sampled some of the local food. The market experience was most interesting. We were all very surprised to learn that the herbs are included in the food purchase for the asking! It was very different from the U.S. And of course all the food ingredients were so fresh. The meal that was planned was perfect, and Alfredo and Nina both patiently guided us through each step. All of us are experienced cooks, but I learned, as we all did, several new techniques that I know I will make a regular part of my cooking in the future.
This is one activity I will definitely recommend to others who go to Rome. Others in our group were very curious to hear about this experience.
