Chef Guido and Sally

Your new friends in Italy!

Chef Guido is an 8th generation Roman with a passion for traditional Italian cuisine and fresh, natural, locally sourced ingredients. He has been running Convivio Rome with his wife Sally for 15 years, offering Italian cooking classes, cooking holidays, olive oil tours and wine tours. A lot of the dishes he teaches come from his family through the many generations. Guido’s cooking classes are much more than just a cooking lesson: he’s also a storyteller, always ready to share a story from Italy or tell you about the history behind a recipe. He settled in the beautiful countryside north of Rome, a stunning region called Sabine Hills, with his family. He now also runs Live virtual cooking classes and parties. Guido’s English language is perfect and, because he was born and still lives in Italy, he’s happy to answer any questions you have about his home country. 

Sally, a former antropologist originally from Australia, first moved to Italy over 20 years ago. It was ‘Amore’ when Sally met Guido, which led her to stay. She stepped into the rich Italian culture immediately, appreciating the warmth of the people, the beauty of the landscape, the culture and history, plus the amazing food and wine. Sally travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and America as a tourist before making Italy her home. “As an Australian living in Italy, I really enjoy showing my guests those secret places I have discovered, giving them an experience of what it’s like to live as a local here in Italy. There’s so much more to Italy that what you can discover as a tourist and I am honoured to reveal aspects of the Italian culture that you would never see otherwise”.

What they are saying about Chef Guidos online cooking classes and cultural experiences

"We (my daughter and I) and over 15 friends from all over the United States just had the most marvelous Saturday cooking lesson and lunch with Chef Guido. We made gnocchi and ragu sauce and had a marvelous time catching up, learning about Italian cooking and enjoying a delicious lunch. If you are looking for ways to spend time with family and friends, ask Convivio Rome about their zoom cooking parties. My friend Angela made the most beautiful gnocchi!!! What a wonderful time! “ - Nola V. USA

“Lauren and I would like to thank you for such a fabulous and fun virtual Italian cooking class. It was like taking a trip to beautiful Italy without leaving home!

“Hi Guido, What a great virtual Italian cooking party we had with you! It was so much fun getting all my family and friends together from all over the globe and cooking.
