Your experience

    For every Italian, from north to south, from snow to sea, the aperitivo is sacred! Convivial and cheerful, aperitivo time is also a good excuse to relax with friends over a good glass of prosecco or a cool cocktail. But the most fun thing is to put your imagination to the test in preparing the many tastings to set on a self-respecting aperitif table. On this occasion we will taste together some of the classic appetizers that accompany this event so important to our culture, some of which we will prepare together, clever and impressive recipes that we can show off at the first useful aperitif!

    Ofelia was a great teacher and host. The food we prepared together was delicious. She made us feel comfortable knowing that we do not cook like this. We enjoyed there company.

    Our dinner experience with Ofelia in her lovely home was absolutely the best part of our trip to Rome. She is so warm and welcoming and the food was out of this world. Not only is it a great learning experience but a chance to make a new friend. Highly recommend!

    "Hello everyone! Mine is a cuisine that starts above all from traditional family recipes. I was born in Calabria, but mine is a family branched out in cultural and consequently also culinary history. A great-grandmother of a Jewish family married to a great-grandfather an aviator American, another who abandoned dancing with the consuls for a marriage with an intellectual of peasant origins, all united with the Calabrian mountain tradition.From the branch of Jewish origins I took the great love for sweet and sour, for fermented recipes and spicy scents, from the noble branch some recipes that I discovered to be relatives of sometimes Sicilian and sometimes Neapolitan cuisine (from the Kingdom of the two Sicilies:), some that I have never happened to find in other houses. I moved to Rome almost twenty years ago to study and I stayed there, here I also assimilated some recipe books from my partner who is a Roman from Trastevere, making my own super recipes rlatives of the Roman tradition, such as the first classics or the Maritozzi, which I often personalize with fillings that bring me and my guests back to Calabria!
