Goatober Rome – Goat tasting evening with James Whetlor from Cabrito, Saturday 13 October

Saturday 13 October from 7pm.  Stand up goat tasting dinner (see the menu below!) click here to book your spot.

Goatober spreads the word that goat meat is delicious, ethical and sustainable. The hope is to move goat meat into the mainstream with the goal that all billy goats born into the dairy system, anywhere in the world, will go into the food system, rather than being wasted.

Cabrito Goat Meat at Hill Farm Dairy, Somerset

Goatober arrived in the UK in 2016 and mainland Europe in the following year. There are vibrant dairy industries across the UK and Europe who want to change the practice of euthanising and Goatober is part of the solution. The campaign aims to put a goat dish on restaurant menus and to encourage people to try cooking goat at home themselves, for all or part of October.

James Whetlor, the founder of Cabrito, will be cooking and presenting his vision of the future of goat meat.

In October 2018, there are Goatober events and dinners in London, Bristol, Manchester, Cornwall and at a global food symposium in Galway, Ireland. Working in partnership with the Interreg ‘food heroes’project, which aims to end food waste in farming across the EU, there are events at the Nantes food Festival in France and in Frankfurt, The Netherlands, Rome and at the Amorevore Food & Arts Festival in Ibiza.

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.

Email alicekiandra.adams@gmail.com for more details.

Market to Table 2018 dates

Market to Table, the special series of appointments created by Rachel Roddy, Carla Tomasi and Alice Adams for visitors to Rome, is back for 2018 with more dates and a revised class structure.  The concept remains the same: we start at the market, mostly Testaccio, but other markets on occasion, where we fill bags and baskets with the best of the season.  We then walk back across the river to Trastevere and up to latteria studio where Carla awaits – with more produce from her garden in Ostia.

 

Making fresh pasta is much of the day, as well as trimming, cutting and prepping the vegetables and other morsels that will make up part of a very convivial shared lunch.

 

The dates for 2018 are listed below.  They will be available to book (with a deposit) three months out from each class – you can click on the link to do so.  If you are coming to Rome on a date that doesn’t match please feel free to enquire about a private class with either Carla or Alice.

Max group size is 6 participants, with a special class with a max of 4 people on selected dates.  Two of the three of us will always lead the class.

Sep 21 SOLD OUT – contact us for other Sep dates
Wednesday 26 Sep – sold out
