Hi from Valeria e Valentina!

Parioli is a Roman neighborhood that holds a unique charm. It distinguishes itself by its marvelous buildings and large green areas. This neighborhood offers up so many different facets and after the Second World War it began to get noticed, becoming the hang outplace of famous movie stars, important theater actors and diplomats from all over the world. The history of Parioli is, however, dates back to the Roman period. Later, during the Middle Ages, the neighborhood was known as "Pelaiolo", a peasant term referring the fruit of the pear tree.Valeria and Valentina greet us here in Parioli in their period home. Both lovers of the culinary arts, they have always enjoyed spending lots of time cooking and trying out new recipes, from the past and present. Their dishes are full of the memories and flavors of childhood, and their table setting is elegant and full of colors that vary according to the seasons. Their preparations tend to revolve around  baked goods (bread, breadsticks, taralli), all strictly homemade using our Cesarines own sourdough starter and extra virgin olive oil which they also produce themselves.

The cooking class was a success. My son loves cooking and Valentina and Valeria were super kind in explaining how to make fresh past and seasonal stuffed zucchini. It was the best experience during our trip to Italy. If you come to Rome don't miss it.

My daughter and I had a fantastic experience. We visited a local market where Valeria and Valentina showed us all local products. We shopped all necessary for our cooking class at Valeria's home. The two ladies gave us lots of tips for archieving perfect culinary results. We will definitely repeat the recipes at home. Thanks a lot ladies!!

WOW what a wonderful experience this was for our family of four! The ladies were so welcoming, and encouraging. We learned a great deal about cooking techniques, flavors, Italian history and traditions around food, and how to make the best pasta and tiramisu we have ever had! Will be applying what we learned at home. Our boys were 19 and 22. They learned life long cooking skills. Grateful for their warmth and knowledge! Wonderful activity to do as a family! Thank you!
