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.
