ROME | Looking for the perfect way to experience a day in Rome like a local? We recommend a private cooking lesson with Marilee.

LivItaly Tours invited us to learn how to prepare traditional Italian dishes on our own and we couldn’t refuse! On a recent trip to Rome, we met up with Marilee, an American expat who calls the eternal city home.

We met her one sunny morning at Piazza Sempione, a little outside of Rome’s bustling city center. As we accompanied her to local market stalls for our ingredients, Marilee shared the story of how she met her Italian husband. She’s been living in Italy and cooking Italian food for 36 years now, and we loved learning about her life and some of her favorite local shops. Wanting to ensure we could recreate the meals we were going to cook in class, Marilee was full of ingredient recommendations along the way.

After we shopped, Marilee invited us into her home and thus commenced the loveliest afternoon we could have dreamed of spending in Rome. Over the next several hours we cooked, swapped stories and ate to our heart’s content. We made pizette, spinach ricotta ravioli, fettucine with ragu sauce, and bresaola with artichokes. Marilee was the perfect teacher and host in one, keeping up the merriment as we kneaded pasta dough, made ravioli filling and navigated tricky artichoke shells. In between all the cooking, we paused to sit and eat each course while it was hot and fresh.

We capped the afternoon off with some coffee, Marilee’s handmade biscotti and a sampling of her husband’s homemade limoncello. Before we knew it, we had to leave to catch our train for Naples. Marilee sent us off with a thoughtful parting gift and plenty of tips to help us make our own pasta at home.

We have visited Rome several times, but we can sincerely say this class with Marilee is one of our fondest memories of the city. Whether you’re an individual, couple, or family with kids, Marilee caters to everyone.

LivItaly Tours offers additional tours and experiences as well, ranging from virtual reality tours of the Colosseum to private shore excursions along the Amalfi Coast. Try one of their offerings next time you’re in Italy and be sure to share your experience with us in the comments.

Ciao!
