Chef Julian knew his stuff. He had a military and soul food background and knew how to make a wholesome meal. We made ravioli and had cuisine that hit the spot.Scott

It was so unbelievably amazing working with Chef Dorothy and Mangia DC. I don’t even truly have the words to put together how much of an incredible experience it truly was. What Chef Dorothy taught us and the food we made together was so delicious and special…
I truly cannot say thank you enough for all you did!Lauren

We had a blast in this cooking class… The class hosted by Dave and Chef Julian was awesome.
It was 3 hours of fun socializing with great food and a little ravioli making. Plenty of delicious food in the 4 course meal.Alex


About Our Company: Mangia DC Food Tours

As an award-winning, 5-star rated company, we strive for excellence to ensure each of our guests has a blast! Mangia DC is #1 on TripAdvisor for Food and Drink Activities AND Classes and Workshops in Washington, DC. We are excited for you to join us and see why!

Mangia (pronounced: mahn-ja) means “eat” in Italian. Since 2013, we here at Mangia DC have been committed to helping out-of-town visitors and our fellow Washingtonians experience the taste of our nation’s capital through culinary experiences where our guests learn, enjoy, and —of course— eat!

In-person we do that by hosting tasting events, cooking classes, and food tours in Washington DC’s iconic neighborhoods. As we navigate the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are safely reopening for private in-person events in accordance with CDC best practices and local mandates, in addition to continuing the fun virtual offerings we’ve cooked up over the past two years.
