Master your fresh homemade pasta and gnocchi skills

There are 25+ dough recipes and 25+ different pasta shapes (and growing!) in our masterclasses. You'll learn everything you need to know to easily prepare, shape, cook, serve, and store fresh homemade pasta and gnocchi from scratch. Not to mention the loads of tips and hacks we share.

Introducing our crazy chef Carla.

Learn how easy it is to cook like an Italian

There's much more to Italian food than pasta and gnocchi. With the dozens of step-by-step traditional Italian recipes, you are going to love preparing moka pot coffee, breakfast cakes and cookies, risotto, soups, meat and seafood dishes, veggies, gelato and desserts. Recipes serve 2 people (so no more cooking for an army!).

Introducing our sweet chef Cristina.

Enjoy preparing and putting together a meal like Italians do

Italians have a thing with pairing so when preparing a meal, we choose recipes that make sense with each other. And since mixing and matching is not that obvious to do, we did the homework for you. In 'Menu of the Day' you will find lots of different Italian meal plans you can easily prepare every week.

Introducing Mamma Giuliana and Papà Riccardo.

Understand and learn to pair Italian wines and spirits

Italy has the widest grape biodiversity on the planet so there are a lot of unique wines to discover! To make life easy, our sommelier has paired each recipe to an Italian wine. You will also love the simple language and friendly approach to Italian wines, cocktails, and spirits used in our online courses, masterclass, and live trainings.

Introducing our sommelier Eric.

Experience the authentic Italian lifestyle at home

We are bringing all of Italy to you! The music (with a private Italian playlist we created for you on Spotify), the language (with audio files and videos so you can practice your Italian, plus recipes in both English and Italian), the people (we'll get together in our exclusive Facebook group and in our live trainings), the vibe (Casa Local Aromas is 100% made in Italy).

Introducing the Foodie Sisters in Italy, Benedetta and Valeria.

Enjoy the pictures and videos by our Director of Photography

Like in all families, we love creating lifetime memories. We are blessed to have a professional photographer and videomaker in the family so everything we do looks amazing! He encourages us to fully express our personalities and captures the true essence of who we are. The 250+ minutes of videos in Casa Local Aromas and the videos on our YouTube all carry his signature.

"I have been a fan of Local Aromas since my husband and I attended an in-person cooking class in Rome in 2019. I followed the school on Facebook and the sisters on YouTube and have enjoyed their friendly approach to sharing their love of great food but also sharing the fantastic culture we all love. I couldn’t wait to sign up for the Local Aromas Family virtual cooking school - I think I signed up within 30 minutes of it launching! It is misleading though, to think of it only as a cooking school. It is so much more than that. It truly is a family, a community. Beyond cooking, we talk about culture, language, music, films … everything is 'on the table. I have loved getting to know all of the members on our zoom family get-togethers and I think we all inspire each other to try new things and to expand out of our comfort zones. My favorite part of this experience is that I genuinely feel that I joined something to which I truly belong. It is not just a repository of recipes - you can get recipes anywhere. What you can’t replicate is the care and pride and joy and FUN that the whole Local Aromas team put into everything they do. This group, this family, is unlike any other. I love being a part of it and I am so excited for all the things to come."

"My wife and I are Americans with a love for Italy and a special interest in Italian food.  I came across some Local Aromas videos while searching on YouTube and I was intrigued from the start. Whether visiting local markets, dining in restaurants, or cooking in your kitchen, I learned a lot from your videos and they were always fun to watch. That led me to sign up for the school and pay for a year of enrollment. We have been following along through the menus in our own kitchen, starting with the primos. I especially like that the recipes are offered in both English and Italian. This is a great help to us in improving our Italian language skills. We are grateful, too, for the wine pairing suggestions. I want to compliment you, too, on the beauty and clarity of the presentation of the courses on the internet. Each 'class' is easy to follow and lovely to view. I am so glad I found the Foodie Sisters and the Local Aromas family. My appetite for knowledge and delicious Italian food have both benefitted from that discovery. We look forward to meeting you when we’re in Rome and to participating in some of your food and wine tours.


"So I really love how down to earth and relatable everyone in your family is. You really make us all feel very welcomed and make it fun to learn. I love connecting to my Italian roots and making the dishes! I enjoyed the zoom meeting and look forward to more of those! My dream is to visit Italy soon and being part of the Local Aromas family brings me just a little closer. Thank you for having this fun program where I get to learn and experience the people and food of Italy!"


"I love being part of the Local Aromas family! Each person on the team is introduced and appreciated for their special skill set. Celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays allows us to come together with joy. The cooking videos provide tips, simplicity, and personality--all in one! The courses are laid out in a wonderfully organized manner. It makes it easy to proceed at one's one pace--or as time allows. The wine pairing is helpful and appreciated. The explanation of why a specific wine is paired with the ingredients of the food has definitely added to my knowledge. I adore Italy, and, until we can return (hopefully soon), this connection warms my heart each and every day!"
