About this experience

Here’s your chance to perfect your technique at making some Italy’s most famous pasta sauces, while spending a fun and relaxing evening with everybody’s favourite host, chef Massimo Bruno!

In this hands-on, interactive class, Massimo will guide the class through the process of making these classic dishes:


Rigatoni alla Carbonara - the classic Roman dish, made egg yolk, guanciale and aged cheese

Spaghetti alla Puttanesca - a staple Neapolitan dish made with tomato, olives, capers, anchovy and peperoncino

Orecchiette con cime di rapa (Rapini) - pasta con rapini is the most common dish from Puglia, Massimo’s home region. He will share the secrets to making such a simple dish taste so good!
