Rita Monastero, cooking teacher and food writer extraordinaire, is going to be offering hands-on cookery lessons at the houses from the autumn. The lessons will cost €35 per person, including ingredients and you will be able to eat the results.

I met Rita in Rome today and she is coming out to inspect my pots and pans at the end of August. She already has her first students, because the guests at Casa Galilei are going to take advantage of her trip to have a cooking lesson.

Rita has published two books on cooking in Italia: the photo shows her at the launch of her most recent book.
