Learn to cook from a Sommelier!
Sep 2019
We caught Claudia at her family restaurant in Rome, Enotca Corsi. We planned to eat there on the recommendation of Rick Steve's guide book but the restaurant was closed on Monday nights. We walked in to see her conducting a cooking class and she invited us back the next night. We joined in with a group of college students to learn how to make Mozzarella in Carrozza, gnocchi with ragu and a crostini for dessert. Caudia is a great teacher (let me help cook in the kitchen) and is willing to work with you at any level. Even better, as a sommelier, she really knows how to pair a wine! I was particularly impressed with how she found reasonably priced wines that went with our rustic Italian menu. Best of all, she's just fun to talk with. 5 stars!

Evening cooking class: If you're considering this, just stop and DO IT
Mar 2018
We booked the evening cooking class in the family restaurant recently while visiting our son who is doing a semester in Rome. Having done a similar activity in Tuscany about 4 years ago, I wasn't sure how into it we (my wife and I, the 20 year old and my 13 year old son) would be, but the activity exceeded my hopes by a longshot. The ambiance is really warm and fun (the class is only available on the evenings that the restaurant is closed). Most importantly, Claudia is a gem. She is bright, warm, funny and informative. Cooking (and wine) are her family heritage, and she loves them both, and conveys them expertly. She is a delightful person (who speaks English perfectly, with an Australian accent) who connected with each of us easily. We prepared pasta (spinach ravioli), tiramisu, saltimbocca, a fruit tart and fried zucchini flowers from scratch and then enjoyed them with wine selected by Claudia for one of the most special family dinners we have ever enjoyed. Time did not allow us to book the version that Claudia offers in the nearby castle, but I can only Imagine how wonderful that is. This was a highlight of a very memorable trip to Rome

Fantastic Fun Night for all the family
Dec 2016 • Family
We booked Claudia to come to our apartment to do some cooking 'Roman style' as a suprise for our children age 12 & 9. It was a brilliant night with fabulous food, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome.
Thank you Claudia, and best of luck for the future...

Cooking with Claudia
Dec 2016 • Couples
My wife and I met Claudia in our favorite restaurant in Rome - Enoteca Corsi for our cooking lesson. She did an amazing job taking us from dessert - Tiramisu to appetizer - Mozzarella n Corroza to first course sauces of Cacio Pepe, Amatriciana and Carbonara and finally Veal Saltimbocca alla Romano. We cooked, laughed, ate and cooked some more and ate some more.... She kept it hands on and was very patient. She made us feel at home and part of her family. We will definitely be back and maybe next time we'll meet her at the lake. Best cooking class ever. We're cooking some of her recipes tonight for friends.

First rate
Aug 2016 • Family
Claudia came to our apartment where we were staying in Rome, and spent an evening with my daughter and I, cooking and teaching. Everything about the experience was first rate. Claudia worked with us beforehand on a menu and approach. On the actual night, the food and ingredients were wonderful, the instruction was structured right to our level. She followed up by sending the recipes afterward. Claudia is a fantastic cook and teacher, and just a pleasant human being to be around. Thank you Claudia!

Amazing!!
Dec 2015 • Couples
I am a bit late in writing this review but my husband and I took this class last May while in Rome for our honeymoon! It was an amazing experience, and I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in making great pasta in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Claudia was so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious and super easy to make. We would definitely take this class again if visiting Rome!

AUTHENTIC ITALIAN EXPERIENCE!
Jun 2014 • Solo
The 3 Inch Fat Cooking Classes and tour were the highlights of my month vacation in Italy!
Claudia is a charismatic, warm and skilled teacher and guide! I learnt so many skills and feel excited inspired to experiment in my kitchen in Sydney. Claudia speaks excellent English and gives colourful and clear explanations. I would recommend these courses to all my friends and family.

Fantastic!
Jun 2014 • Friends
We've done a few of Claudia's cooking courses and all have been world-class, including a 4-day trip to the island Ponza with her. We learned a ton about Italian cooking and Claudia is an excellent teacher and excellent chef. She is authentic and genuine and a really smart instructor, able to translate Italian cooking tips into techniques that you can take home. A special special find in Rome.

Funtastic and Great Teaching!
Jun 2014 • Friends
Eight friends met with Claudia and her team for a cooking class. We learned so many wonderful tips, cooked amazing food from lamb to homemade ravioli, to bruschetta salad to dessert. We drank wonderful wine (she is a sommelier), laughed, cooked, ate--a real night to remember. You won't be disappointed!
