Cooking School

Food is the Italian passion. Wine&Dine Holidays is partnering with IFA (Italian Food Adventures) Cookery School, located in Ciampino, in Castelli Romani area.

Our food&wine holidays include cooking courses, sharing with you the preparation of a delicious full Italian meal with fresh ingredients that you can possibly obtain back home. You will learn the secrets and history behind each recipe and discover the real meaning of the Italian food culture while enjoying a relaxing atmosphere, good food and tasty wines.

The IFA Cookery School is set in a venue just 10 minutes from Ciampino Airport called 'Residenza d’ Epoca Pietra di Ponente', a mid-nineteenth-century winery fully renovated as a small country hotel. Within easy reach from Rome, the venue of IFA Cookery School has a stunning view of Rome and embraces the landscape from the green Alban Hills to blue Tyrrhenian coastline. Whether you are a beginner or already a good cook and want to learn to prepare some local dishes, IFA Cookery School offers you a range of cooking courses and as we only take small groups (max 12) everyone can really get involved.
