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.

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!

Sunday 27 Jan – The Vegetarian Winter Garden

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.

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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Class size is limited to 6 people, and participants will go home with recipes and cooking notes, as well as samples of what we bake. Click here to book a place.
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.
Children are welcome too, because you are never too young to learn how to cook! I am planning to run The Sunday Kitchen on the last Sunday of each month, however if you wish to book any other Sunday and make it your own to celebrate a birthday or a gathering of family and friends just let me know.
