I am very pleased to introduce you to another true classic of our traditional Italian cuisine: Risotto.
Risotto is a traditional Northern Italian rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. In some regions of the North of Italy the best type of superfine rice to be used for risotto is grown. Superfine rice, such as Carnaroli, Arborio, Baldo, is the ideal choice for risotto.
List of tools:
1 kitchen spoon
1 cutting board
Minimum 2 persons
In this LIVE cooking class, we will prepare together a traditional risotto using season ingredients (one of the following: asparagus, zucchini, artichokes, pumpkin, mushroom, spinach etc).
First we will prepare the stock, which is the base of risotto. Then we will prepare the ‘theme’ of the risotto, which is the main ingredient of risotto. We will then start cooking risotto. I will follow you step by step through the whole cooking process. I will teach you how to perfectly toast rice, how to cook it in order to obtain a creamy, smooth and vawy risotto dish, and I will show you the important 'mantecatura' step.
How to Prepare, step-by-step:
1. Choose your preferred date and time on the calendar (I have indicated 3 different time slots - Central European time)
2. You will receive a list of ingredients according to the recipe chosen and to the number of persons.
3. I will be connected via Zoom either via laptop and mobile, in order to show you 2 different views. I will send you an invitation by e-mail, containing a link.
4. Prepare your phone or laptop before the session. Open the video call with the link on the device.

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!
