I am very happy to cook with you the 2 most famous Roman-style pasta dishes worldwide.
Pasta with Carbonara sauce (spaghetti or a short pasta cut, eggs, guanciale or pancetta or bacon, parmesan cheese, pecorino cheese, black pepper) Note: zucchini or asparagus can be used instead of guanciale for a vegetarian version.
Carbonara is a true classic of the Roman cuisine. Every family has its own version. It is an extremely tasty pasta dish and to be successful it must be creamy and well balanced.
Pasta with Cacio e Pepe sauce (spaghetti, pecorino cheese, black pepper).
This is another true classic of the traditional Roman-style cuisine. It is an extremely simple recipe, but simple recipes are not always as easy to make as they could seem. This recipe originates from the sheperds that in ancient times moved their flocks from one country of Italy to another and during their long journey cooked simple pasta recipes using ingredients they could easily transport.
List of tools:

In this LIVE cooking class, we will prepare together 2 traditional roman-style pasta dishes using two different cooking techniques.
First we will prepare carbonara sauce. We will brown the guanciale (or bacon or zucchini/asparagus for a vegetarian version) in a pan. Once ready, we will pasteurize the egg mixture on a bain marie in order to obtain a smooth and creamy pasta dressing. We will then cook pasta and dress them with the sauce obtained.
Then we will prepare cacio e pepe spaghetti and we will cook spaghetti with the ‘risottatura technique’, because we will cook pasta like risotto.

I’m Sabina, and I am thrilled to introduce you to the secrets of our genuine traditional cuisine. Before becoming a Personal Chef and a Chef instructor, I learnt the magic of cooking from my two grannies, both excellent cooks. At the age of 5, I knew exactly how to make fresh pasta dough, and I had already melted for over-usage my first “Dolce Forno” a toy oven that could cook small pastry desserts.
At the age of 25 I replaced my mum in a cooking class of a course she was attending, and from that moment on I took cooking classes anytime I had the opportunity to do it, even when I was on holiday. It was 30 years ago, and in Rome, there were only two cooking schools. After taking a degree in Economics and having worked first as a financial accountant and later as a professional sworn translator, I decided that cooking had to become my job. I took a professional diploma as a Personal Chef, opened a food blog, worked for a food magazine, and in 2014 I founded my cooking school in Rome.
I love bringing my background and experience to the classroom, creating for you an enjoyable way to fine-tune your culinary skills and a great way to spend time together in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. I can’t do without tradition in my cuisine, transforming it with a creative and innovative eye. Traditional, genuine family recipes are the base of my class menus.
My greatest joy is to share my knowledge of our traditional cuisine while, at the same time, doing the best I can to satisfy your needs and curiosity about Italian food. Cooking for me is an extraordinary experience, and it means taking you by the hand to a joyful place where you can feel free and happy to learn creatively.
Follow me on a beautiful culinary journey!
