Cooking class online to make Italy's Iconic Pasta all'Amatriciana. Connect with Zoom and make this dish with your Italian chef. Fully interactive class.

Roma o Amatrice? This typical pasta dish, one of my absolute favourites since I can remember, has always been disputed between the city of Rome, and the smaller town of Amatrice.

My aunt, whilst explaining this long-lasting pasta dispute, once told me a story involving a courageous woman, and that is what I have decided to stick to!

One day, in the 15th century (yes, that does sound quite vague, I must admit), a young woman named Anna De Angelis left from Amatrice with just her sack, containing homemade and dried pasta, slices of seasoned pork, pecorino cheese and field herbs. She walked for miles and arrived in Rome, where, in the middle of the street, she set a boiling pot and started cooking the original version of pasta all’amatriciana. Although the ‘matriciani' were not well received by the Romans, this specialty earned the approval of all Romans in no time, becoming a staple dish also in the Italian Capital.

Give it a try with Chef Michele, this dish is so simple yet loved by everyone, that you will never again be wondering what to cook for your friends and family on short notice!

Michele Berlendis

Chef Michele Berlendis is the hands and heart of MaMa Florence, since he joined the team in 2016. A native-born Tuscan, he attended a technical school specializing in hospitality and during weekends, worked in a local restaurant where his passion for the kitchen was born. His most significant formative restaurant experience was working alongside chef Filippo Saporito, who he defines as his culinary guru, at La Leggenda dei Frati. After honing his skills, Michele moved to Berlin where he worked at the premier Italian restaurant Boccadibacco and helped run Caffe Pfoertner. Michele’s approach to cooking is dynamic and he loves experimenting with simple flavors so the taste of the genuine ingredients he uses can really come through. He reinterprets classic recipes to give them his personal touch. You can find him coordinating the order from the butcher, finding the freshest seasonal produce at the local vegetable market, or in his chef’s whites in front of the stovetop at MaMa sharing his knowledge with smiling participants.
