Chef Cristina Bowerman (Michelin star since 2010), the only female chef with 1 Michelin star in Rome, will welcome you in her Glass Hostaria in the middle of Trastevere, one of the most traditional, antique area in Rome.

The restaurant is counter-current with the Trastevere scene, exactly like Cristina’s cuisine.

Chef Bowerman will meet you at Glass, you’ll walk into traditional shops and markets to buy ingredients for your starred cooking experience.

Lesson will be held in a private room by Chef Bowerman and you’ll prepare under her directions one of the courses that you’ll enjoy in the following “10 courses + wine pairing” tasting dinner.

At the end of the lesson, before dinner, will be served an aperitif and you’ll assist to the cooking of your plates in the starred kitchen.


ROME, historical city center, a fashionable Michelin starred restaurant

COOKING ACADEMIES – Michelin Starred Chef

Duration on-site (hours. ±1): about 4 (four) hours and starts at 04.00 p.m.

A Michelin starred restaurant is not only a restaurant, it’s part of an Olympus where only a few people in the world are admitted…

The kitchen of this Olympus is also more exclusive and “common mortals” never enter here…

Guests of WFTI will be admitted and the “Pink Queen” Chef of this Olympus will be your tutor for as long as you can learn secrets and breathe the air of true professionals.

Among the small vicolos, the traditional atmosphere that Trastevere profuses, you can easily spot Glass as it represents an exception to the rule: modern, brave and surprising.

Glass offers a modern approach to Italian cuisine without ever forgetting to be in the heart of Rome, in the center of Italy.

When you are tired of traditional carbonara, cacio e pepe and scottadito, there’s Glass with new and unique approach to ingredients and dishes.

Chef Bowerman is constantly raising the bar with new and innovative techniques and ingredients that she englobes in her research, passion, experiences during her trips
around the world.

Her kitchen style is the result of experiences, travels, meetings, culinary training and studies, always been the primary source of inspiration.

Cristina’s cuisine is a cultural crossing that tells about taste through the constant dialogue between traditions, cultures, memory and places.

Dear guests of WFTI, you are kindly invited to forget everything you have heard about cooking lessons.

Let yourself be guided by our exuberant friend Chef Cristina to feel part of her rarefied world of exceptional artists of taste and food culture for a few hours.

And remember for life.
