Course Description

My 5 video lessons and on-the-go audio lessons are rich in details, fun to watch or listen to, and drenched in Italian culture.

The class will take you through a four-course meal for two. Step-by-step you'll learn to make a starter (aperitivo), a first course (primo), a second course (secondo), a side dish (contorno) and a dessert (dolce).

Authentic Italian dishes are mostly made with 5 ingredients. Besides mastering an Italian dinner, you'll learn to principles that guide Italian cookery: how to handle garlic and onion in your sauces; how to craft and cook pasta; how to be dose your ingredients, and how to correctly pronounce food and dishes in Italian.

I'll be with you every step of the way. And I won't bore you. The point is not to watch me do everything for hours on end, but to give you well-edited, fun, informative and engaging video lessons that you can replay until you internalize the process. In 20 minutes you will learn how to cook and present a full-fledge Italian romantic dinner that takes 2 hours to make.

Plus, I've also included a podcast of my recipes, which you can listen to while cooking. And don't forget to download my Italian glossary, shopping list with quantities for each ingredient and a converting chart for those who use grams. That way, you buy what you need, and nothing more. All my courses end with a recap on time management in the kitchen to give you the confidence and speed of a real expert.

Instructor Biography

Fulvio Paolocci, FollowFulvio

Welcome to the kitchen of an Italian from Rome. I've been cooking since age 12. That's when I started splattering my mom's kitchen making pasta of all kinds, from the egg cream and bacon pasta to the delicate spaghetti with clams. At the beginning, some plates went straight into the garbage. Twenty years later, I'm the designated cook for my friends and family. Many say I should open my own restaurant, and maybe someday I will. For now, I want to teach you what I know, the secrets, tips and recipes of real Italian food.

When I'm not sautéing, stirring or serving up my favorite dishes, I'm filming and reporting on food. As you will see in my high-quality videos, I'm a professional video journalist. For the past ten years, I have traveled everywhere in Italy, reporting on Italian cuisine. I ate a lot of it, and learned from the best local cooks.
