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!
Wednesday 6 February 2019
Meeting place is outside Bar Desideri, via A G Barrili 56, and then on to Latteria Studio, via di Ponziano 29
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.
