Taking a Cooking Class in Rome

5 Reasons to Book a Local Aromas Cooking Class

For a fun and delicious experience in Rome look no further than a cooking class. What could be better than spending a few hours in good company as you laugh, learn and cook with an Italian chef, picking up skills and recipes that will stay with you for the rest of your life. We would love to welcome you to the Local Aromas kitchen so if you need any more convincing to take one of our cooking classes in Rome read on for five very good reasons:

Location, Location, Location

The Local Aromas kitchen is located in a private home close to Vatican City. Situated on the top floor of a residential building, it feels just like visiting a friend’s house with a warm ambience and a well-stocked wine fridge. Oh and did we mention the view? The kitchen offers a spectacular panorama over the city and an unrivalled view of Michelangelo’s dome of St Peter’s Basilica. Once the hard work is done you can relax and savor your efforts in our elegant dining room with an equally amazing vista over the Roman rooftops.

Learn to Cook Like a Chef

What do you want to learn? Become a master at making pasta at our Fresh Homemade Pasta class where you will learn to prepare delicious fettuccine, ravioli and eggless acqua e farina pasta from scratch; or try our Lasagna & Fettuccine lesson to cook hearty Italian food like a real Roman mamma. Join our pizza class and you will never buy ready-made pizza again, or if gnocchi are your thing then you can learn to make three different types (potato, ricotta and semolina) at our dedicated gnocchi lesson. Take home a true taste of Rome at our 4 Roman Pastas class where you will learn to knock out Carbonara, Gricia, Amatriciana and Cacio e Pepe like a chef, or soak up that amazing view at sunset as you help us prepare our Roman Cooking Dinner.

At every class you will learn insider tips and tricks from a local chef in a fun, relaxed atmosphere which is suitable for all ages. All of our morning courses also include a visit to the local market to meet the vendors and sample their products before you put on your apron and roll up your sleeves. Our chefs can turn their hand to any aspect of Italian cooking so we are also happy to customize a private lesson to suit you!

Enjoy a Delicious Meal

Nothing tastes better than the satisfaction felt when settling down to a meal you have cooked yourself. Once the preparation is done there is time to sit and enjoy the results of your efforts as our chef serves up course-after-course of the food you made with your own hands. Every meal needs dessert so you will also learn to make a sublime tiramisù to ensure that the experience ends on a sweet note.
