The story of the "Fettuccine Alfredo" began in 1907, in the traditional rooms of a locanda in the heart of Rome. The delicious concoction of pasta, butter, parmesan cheese was born from Alfredo's passion for good cuisine, the theater, and his beautiful wife. It is said that his theatricality - expressed in part by how he served the food in person, in part by his distinctive bushy mustache - is definitely responsible, too.

Made famous around the world through the story of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks - who, during their honeymoon in Rome, tasted the Fettuccine Alfredo and gave Alfredo the famous gold tableware - the original Fettuccine Alfredo has been sampled by countless famous characters such as Dwight Eisenhower, Maria Callas, Gary Cooper, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and Pink Floyd. Fettuccine Alfredo remain an inimitable icon of Roman cuisine.


For a morning full of taste and tradition, wear a chef's apron, learn the recipe, and discover the secrets and tricks of this dish of unique taste, right in the historic restaurant where it was first created!

At the end of the lesson and before lunch, each participant will receive a Certificate of Participation, and the delicious gift products selected by Alfredo's Gallery: flavored olive oil and a package of Fettuccine Alfredo ready to cook.

After your “hard” work under the chef's guidance, have a seat at the table and enjoy a delicious lunch. You'll of course taste the fettuccine, accompanied by the excellent wine selection by Alfredo's Gallery. Lunch will then continue with succulent straccetti alla romana (a delicious dish of small pieces of thinly sliced and sauteed beef with rosemary) and conclude with the insuperable sweetness of the tiramisù.
