Market to Table 2019 dates

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.

Il Ghiottone Umbro in Rome – 3 day Autumn workshop: 10-13 October

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.

Ravioli del Mondo | Dumplings of the World – NEW DATES

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.

Italian summer: new ways with vegetables with Alice Adams and Vanessa Miles

Friday 15 June, a day workshop with lunch, from 9.30am.

Summer is a feast of tomatoes, zucchini, the perfume of basil, the smell of tomato leaves, and a purple haze of eggplants at the markets.  This day workshop, which will start at the lovely open air market in Monteverde Vecchio, will focus on ways to cook the best of the season all summer long.  

Pasta (1 of 1)-3 (2)

Join these two Australian cooks, who have built a friendship based on the love of food from both sides of the globe, for a day cooking outside of the vegetable box.  Vanessa is a gardener as well as a cook, and will share her recipe and technique for her fresh tomato leaf pasta, which we’ll enjoy with fresh tomato and butter sauce.  We’ll roast peppers, slow roast tomatoes and grill eggplant, and talk about how to preserve them as well as ways to use as part of a summer feast. You’ll learn new ways with zucchini and twists on tomatoes, and everything prepared will be enjoyed with a convivial lunch including local wines. For more info you can write to: alicekiandra.adams@gmail.com or vanessa@thehungrychook.com

The Sunday Kitchen with Carla Tomasi, various dates

The Sunday Kitchen is a new monthly series at Latteria Studio that kicks-off on Sunday 28th January.  If you work all week long this is a once a month opportunity to join a cooking class, be part of a convivial group and enjoy a beautiful lunch.

The day will start with just baked maritozzi and cinnamon buns, with the big Moka being passed around.

Fresh pasta and focaccia will always be made, and a stuffed focaccia too to be enjoyed with our aperitivo.

The Sunday Kitchen will always be a very seasonal with as much produce as possible from my garden in Ostia Antica.

Sometimes the day will be vegetarian, sometimes not, however the vegetable world – together with pulses and grains – will always prominently figure. My two gorgeous butchers boys (they run a lovely local shop) will be able to provide us with certified meats and fish will be bought at my trusted fishmonger Faiola in Ostia where everything on offer is spanking fresh.

learn to bake SOURDOUGH bread with Jeremy Cherfas – Sunday June 9

Join master baker and sourdough nut Jeremy Cherfas for an all day baking workshop.

Along with taking participants through the basics of baking bread with a natural ‘mother’ yeast, everyone in this all day class will take home a piece of starter with which to continue their sourdough journey.  And not just any starter!  Jeremy has a much loved Tuscan starter – that he has fed and baked with for over ten years – that is over a hundred years old.  Is there anything particulary Tuscan about it?  Perhaps not, but it is ready to make delicious, flavorful and nutritious bread.

Jeremy will pass on the knowledge surrounding keeping, and using your new (old) starter to make sourdough bread of various types.  There will be a fresh summer lunch with wine and detailed notes to take home along with the starter.

Email Jeremy on jcherfas@gmail.com for more info.
