What you can expect

If you always wanted to cook like the Roman nonnas, now you can when you cook a family-recipe together with Gabi.

Other than helping out with cooking, Gabi will teach you everything you need to know to make it perfect. Gabi will even share his secrets so you can turn this recipe into 4 different ones!

To cook Pasta Alla A'matriciana along with Gabi you'll need to have these ingredients:

  • dry Italian pasta
  • cherry tomatoes and/or tomato sauce
  • cured pork cheek or pancetta
  • Pecorino Romano or Italian Parmigiano (parmesan)
  • white wine
  • extra virgin olive oil

Gabi recommends using Italian pasta such as Mezze maniche rigate or spaghetti, brands: Rummo, De Cecco, Molisana or any Italian pack. For a real local taste, Gabi recommends using an Italian brand of tomatoes like Mutti, Petti, or de Cecco.

Are you vegetarian, want to make a special dish, or have any allergies: No worries! The experiences can be personalised especially for you. Let Gabi know what you would like to learn or already know, and he will make sure to adjust the menu to your wishes.
