This was an amazing experience. At first I was skeptical, especially being alone, however once I arrived inside the apartment, my mind was immediately put at ease. I was supposed to be cooking in a group of 8, with another couple and a family. However, with a last minute cancellation, there were only 3 of us, with our chef and host. We began with some Prosecco, and tiramisu in order to allow it to set. Then we moved on to ravioli and gnocchi. The views of the Vatican were amazing during the entire class, where we worked in the kitchen overseeing the dome. With such a small group, we were able to spread out, but regardless, both our host and chef were welcoming, answered lots of questions, and continued to wine and dine us. We sampled olive oils and salts in between cooking courses. When the final touches were being put on our plates, we were escorted into the dining room, over looking the sunset on the other side of the apartment to relax and enjoy more sparkling wine. The food was exquisite, and so filling! What a perfect end to my Italian journey. Thank you Local Aromas!…

I took the group cooking class on Valentine's Day, and I am so glad that I did. Carla and Giulia welcomed me with open arms, and were great hosts, chefs and photographers. I do not cook at home, but I loved the class, and the other two couples were lovely. The view from the location is absolutely exquisite. The cooking instruction is clear and easy, but the recipes are also sophisticated and delicious. After we cooked, we were led into a candlelit room to enjoy our dinner. Wine is served throughout. :-) By the time the class ended, I felt like I had 6 new friends. Carla and Giulia also recommended locations for a birthday party for my mother, and helped me find a cab to a party I had to attend after the class. If you want to do something authentic in Rome (even as a solo traveler), schedule this first, and plan everything else around this. Also, Local Aromas will send you restaurant recommendations and a recap of the recipes. Until next time!…

Chef Christina and Bruno were fantastic. My wife and I loved this experience. It was fun, relaxing, and we really got to be involved in learning how to cook. Prosecco was served CG was delicious. The view of the dome of St Peters Basilica is breath taking. And then best of all, eating the meal after is delicious and served with a delicious bottle of red wine. This was a truly great experience . My wife and I did this on our honeymoon and truly enjoyed it. …

A great way to relax, learn, and enjoy the food of Rome: by taking a cooking class with Local Aromas! Our daughters bought this class as a Christmas gift, otherwise we would not have thought to do it on our own. We were so glad that we did- it was the highlight of our visit to Rome! When we arrived we were greeted with the happy, welcoming smiles of host Guila, and Chef Christina. We were then surprised that we were the only participants that evening: for the 5pm Roman Dinner- being a Monday night and in February- we were lucky. Guila is our going and friendly as the host matching perfectly with Christina’s more demure personality (and lesser English speaking skills.). They worked perfectly together. We made tiramisu, dough for the ravioli, filled the ravioli, learned how to make potato gnocchi, we drank Prosecco while cooking and enjoying the sunset view and then dined in a beautiful candlelit setting with a nighttime view of the city. Wonderful!…
