a. antonacciCookery Courses
Ever dream of waking up in a rustic farmhouse north of Rome?  In a room with a view?  Where outside your window an unspoiled landscape includes 500 olive trees?  To a wholesome breakfast made with country-fresh ingredients?
     All this is just the beginning to our cooking programs that offer the unique opportunity to experience Italy through its cuisine, in an authentic Italian home setting, where time at the table is sacred and food is celebrated
     The classes are taught in Italian and are translated into English.
     Our  teachers,  use traditional family recipes, demonstrating cooking techniques passed down from their mothers and grandmothers.   You will learn as they did – hands on!  Or in the pasta!!!! 
     The produce we use is picked fresh from our garden and the organic extra virgin olive oil is our own – Fontana del Papa.
     Claudio, expert Sommelier will share with you his knowledge in wines, grappa &  olive oil through tastings. When in season walking excursions into the surrounding countryside to pick and learn about wild mushrooms, wild salads,  herbs, according to the season.
     We offer one-day, long week-end or week-long programs.  Because our class size is small (usually 4-6 participants) we are also able to design a custom program to suit your interests and time frame, mixing both tour excursions with cooking lessons.  We promote pure food that is local, seasonal and organically grown and can arrange  vegetarian cooking courses and programs suitable for children & kids.

What makes this holiday special?
Let us welcome you to our home, our country and our traditions.  Dedicated to preserving our rich heritage and traditions through cooking classes, we invite you to join us in our family country home.  Our classes are small, informal and taught in our own kitchen. Family with kids are welcome!

We operate in a way that promotes an awareness and a respect for our natural environment.
We support the local community economically by bringing our groups to this rural area in Italy.

We hire local women to work with us and to teach our classes.

Our  cooking courses offer regional cooking , mainly vegetarian, using recipes and techniques passed down throughout the generations.
