At Convivio Rome Italian Cooking Holidays we design our cookery holidays so that our guests get a real taste of Italy. Our cookery courses include Italian cooking classics such us fresh pasta making, wonderfully creamy risotto, and many other delicious Italian dishes. Convivio Rome's Italian cooking lessons are great fun and the Italian recipes used during our cooking holidays and cooking vacations are easy to replicate at home.
Our Italian cookery courses are not just about Italian cooking, as our aim is to give you an unforgettable experience. During your Italian cooking holiday, you have a chance to immerse yourself in true Italian life, cooking and eating the food, drinking the wine, relaxing and enjoying the slower Italian pace of life. During your Italian cooking course and holiday you stay in carefully restored homes within the magical medieval hilltop village of Toffia, in the Sabina region near Rome. Your Italian cookery course also includes tours of Sabina to a number of medieval villages and castles, to a local winery and to an olive grove. In the evening, during your Italian cooking holiday, you'll discover some fantastic Italian wines and enjoy dinner the great local restaurant. Our little village of Toffia is the centre of many cultural events. These activities are usually followed by an amazing dinner with local foods and wines. If you are lucky enough to be here when there is a music concert, play, art exhibition, poetry reading or performance, we are are happy to take you along to enjoy the fun.
"Thank you so much for making us feel so welcomed at your Italian cookery school! We had such a wonderful time. We learned many new Italian recipes and not only about Italian cooking, but the history of the surrounding areas, making olive oil, and the Italian culture. Toffia and the nearby towns are enchanting and a wonderful escape from the craziness of Rome! It was a very unique experience to see such a small Medieval village in the countryside and to have the opportunity to learn how to cook traditional 3 course meals. The food and wine we had at the end of the cooking lessons were unbelievable. I will definitely try out the recipes at home with my friends and family. I look forward to showing off the cooking skills that I learned from Guido! He was also a great tour guide when he took us around the area. We were able to purchase some of the new olive oil in Farfa that they just harvested so that will be a real treat to taste and share. The views of Sabina at sunset were absolutely breathtaking. Thanks again for everything - we will definitely highly recommend your Italian cooking vacations to anyone we know that will be visiting the area! Take care!"
