The best of summer, direct from Carla’s vegetable garden in Ostia Antica, will be on work benches at latteria studio on Friday 19 July and Wednesday 31 July. There will be flat beans and french beans, sweetcorn, zucchini, blossoms and all, tomatoes and fresh herbs, cucumbers, eggplants and fragrant stone fruits. Both days will be a bounty of wonderful produce and classic summery preparations. There will be a lovely long lunch with local wine to finish the class.

Market to Table is a special series of appointments created by Rachel Roddy, Carla Tomasi and Alice Adams for visitors to Rome. The idea is to start at the market, mostly Testaccio, Rachel’s local, where we fill bags and baskets with the best of the season. We then walk back across the river to Trastevere and up to the latteria studio kitchen where Carla (or Alice) awaits – with more produce from her garden in Ostia.

Lisbeth and Thomas from Il Ghiottone Umbro ran their first Roman food weekend workshop this April at latteria studio. From the look of their produce table as they unloaded their produce from the market (Testaccio on friday and Circo Massimo on Saturday), and the taste of some of the dishes I dipped my fork into, this is one of the best 2 day cooking workshops going. Lisbeth, a Danish chef, and Thomas, run a boutique bed and breakfast in Todi. Their next workshop here in Rome will celebrate Autumn and runs between 10 and 13 October. As well as market visits and classes there will be dinners at favourite Roman restaurants and time for a few aperitivi and sights.
Interesting seasonal dishes and regional classics sum up Thomas and Lisbeth’s style, and the best produce from the markets their mantra. Read more about this unique course, and others in their Todi kitchen, here.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a full workshop outline and all details.
This small group class starts at the open air Mercato di Via Niccolini in Monteverde Vecchio where we will shop for seasonal ingredients for a simple vegetable focussed lunch. Back at the studio kitchen we will prepare a regional antipasto, make fresh pasta, prepare two seasonal vegetable dishes and a fruit focussed dessert.
The class will be led by cook, food stylist and teacher Alice Adams, and has a maximum of five participants. Click on the dates to book, and get in contact to suggest a date!

A series of evening classes, from October to December 2018, see dates below.
Every culture has a way of wrapping up simple ingredients into small parcels, which once cooked by various methods; steaming, boiling, baking and frying, create meals that so often come to symbolize the way that country or region eats. Beyond the ravioli of various Italian regions there are the (countless) dumplings of China and other parts of Asia, the Samosas of India, Polish Pierogi and Russian Pelmeni.
This series of evening classes will be simple, short and lots of fun. Each class will end around the long table with glass of wine and the fruits of our labours. Class size is limited to 8 people, you can click on the links to book.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
