Local Aroma Love!
Aug 2019
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!

A Valentine's Day for the Books!
Feb 2020
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!

Best experience and memory of Rome
Feb 2020 • Couples
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!

AMAZING!!!!!
Jan 2020 • Couples
Words cannot describe this experience but I will do my best. My husband and I booked our first trip to Rome for our birthday and decided a cooking class would be a great way to kick off our vacation. This experience was way more than that. Cristina and Francesca were amazing. They were fun, warm and welcoming. The recipes are fantastic and I am so excited to remake everything for my family. We learned how to make ravioli, gnocchi and tiramisu. We drank prosecco with the most gorgeous view of the rooftops of Rome. And to top it off, they surprised us with a candlelit dining room with birthday decorations. Rome is absolutely breathtaking, but our experience with Local Aromas was THE BEST part of our trip. We cant wait to come back and try the other classes. Please dont pass this up if you are in Rome.

A family who cooks together .. stays together ..
Our family of 5 had the most MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCE in Rome at a cooking class with Local aromas. Wow! .... and we had a blast!!!!! We made gnocchi, ravioli, & tiramisu, had too much good wine and great olive oil, AND THE TIME OF OUR LIVES bonding, laughing, & cooking. The food we ate was our own and it was FANTASTIC!!!! We had our own private cook and guide (Bruno) who were magical - in the way they taught us how to do everything to their absolutely amazing personalities. I just can’t stop RAVING about the experience and then there is the view - MAMMA MIA - the view! An exceptional experience for sure for my family. I have a 21 year old son, 17 year old son and 14 year old daughter. My middle child is special needs with autism and cerebral palsy, so this cooking my experience was not in his “usual” repertoire of what he would opt to do, but our cooking class was his favorite ! The cook and guide were able to help him so graciously, so patiently that he absolutely loved it. He also tried new flavors that night because he felt comfortable. As a mom of a special needs child, that is priceless!!! Thank you local aromas for the amazing experience!

Exceeded expectations
Dec 2019 • Couples
A very special and enjoyable experience! As an absolute novice, I established myself as the worst chef fairly quickly but it didn’t stop me having fun! I’m writing this review a month later so have forgotten our two hosts names- however the gentleman was supportive and good humored while the lady was super experienced and passionate. Both worldly and well travelled, no language barriers here! We learnt about flavors and oils to season our dishes, discovered the history behind the dishes and learnt an important life skill: how to prepare tiramisu. Finally the experience was topped off with a memorable dinner with incredible Roman views. Highly recommended.

Review of December class
Dec 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I took this class and had a wonderful evening with Chef Carla and Francesca. They were very thorough and clear with their instructions and were a joy to learn from. Drinking wine and making gnocchi and raviolis was perfecto! Chef Carla made the tiramisu with Pavesini biscuits rather than lady fingers since she felt the lady fingers are too sweet. We actually bought these biscuits in Rome and brought them back home. We made the tiramasu at home for Christmas Eve and it was a huge hit! We would highly recommend localaromas and will definitely take another class on our next trip.

A Truly Memorable Evening
Dec 2019
The setting and company made for a truly memorable evening. Francesca and Carla were fantastic, patient and good-natured given the variety of cooking skills represented during our cooking class/dinner! Despite all of our best efforts to self-sabotage, the meal turned out very delicious and ultimately enjoyed it overlooking the city at night from this unique rooftop venue. Our chefs did a great job keeping everyone involved that consisted of multiple nationalities, languages, and ages, relevant and engaged throughout the entire process of learning to cook a proper Roman meal. Both Carla and Francesca's stories of cooking and family gave an insightful perspective as to why Italians love cooking and eating so much! I seem to remember lots of laughing involved amongst all participants! Thank you both for a great evening.
