Roman Holiday Cooking Class

  • Heidi Billotto's Home

Roman Holiday Cooking Class

Join Heidi Billotto and Nada Vergili of Nada's Italy for a fun hands-on "food and flavors of Rome" cooking class.

This will be a complete dinner of regional Roman specialties with wine parings and a lot of tips about traveling to Italy's capital city. 

If you would like to attend, please email Heidi at [masked] to make your advance reservations.

 We’ll all cook, enjoy food and wine of Italy (in this case of Rome and surrounds in particular) and then Nada will teach us all some fun Italian phrases and a little bit about this wonderful and historic region. 

On the menu: we’ll kick things off with a negroni cocktail, but make it a bit more local by using TOPO Distillery certified organic gin from Chapel Hill! Then we’ll prepare "cacio e pepe" – a fabulous pasta dish with pecorino romano and cracked pepper; a tasty pasta and chick pea soup; "porchetta" made from local pork shoulder from A Way of Life Farm in Bostic NC and a "Nutella Tiramisu" for dessert – Italian wines to pair with each course provided by my friend Josh Villapando at the Assorted Table Wine Shoppe.

Cost is $75 per person, class runs from 6:30-9:30 – printed recipe packet and wine notes for all participants.  To Join us for your Roman Holiday, simply email me at [masked] to make your reservation – Buon Appetito!

    I wish I could attend but right now I can't afford the $75. I am seriously thinking about the Italian course in April. I think that would be more beneficial to me. My husband was Italian American and he taught me a great deal about Italian cooking. Perhaps I will be able to attend the next one. Have great fun, y'all!

It's a fun small-group hands-on cooking class where Heidi & I will be talking about Italy's regional cuisine, traditions, culture, and of course, VINO! Sign up today before the class is full! Just message Heidi and she'll get you on board! Buon appetito!
