“We had a wonderful cooking holiday and an unforgettable experience. We met new friends, truly special people, and reunited with two of our oldest friends. The hosts of Convivio Rome were and are exceptional. They are all “real people” who care about their guests. We all felt like Toffia was our home. We did not want to leave, thanks to everyone: Sally, Valerio, Linnea, Signora Lina and of course our maestro Guido”.

Affordable cooking holidays, small groups.

Convivio Rome Italian Cooking Holidays are an affordable and exciting way to experience the culture, food, wine and convivial company of authentic Italy. The maximum group size of our Italian cookery courses is 8, therefore each participant enjoys personalised attention and gets the most out of every cooking session and excursion. All our cooking classes are in English and held in the kitchen of our family home.
Stunning Sabina, authentic Italy between Rome and Umbria.
Let us share with you the magic of Italy and the Sabina region. Our cookery course is set in Toffia, a medieval hilltop village surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and fruit orchards. The only traffic jams here are caused by shepherds herding their sheep back home. Toffia is only 30 miles (48 kms) north of Rome and 2 miles (3 kms) from Farfa Abbey, one of the most influential and powerful monasteries in European medieval history. Although Sabina was once part of Umbria and has a similar landscape, it has none of the commercialism that you’ll find in other Italian regions.
The fruit and vegetables you buy in Sabina are truly bursting with flavour. They can be bought off a truck, straight from the farmers, are in all different shapes and sizes and only what’s in season. These become the perfect ingredients for our Central Italian cooking courses. There are also plenty of opportunities to discover high quality Italian wines and great single-estate extra virgin olive oils.
