Italian Online Advent Calendar 2021

Italian Christmas home cooking recipes & food gifts

Your Perfect Christmas Present

100% Made in Italy with by Local Aromas


Why an (Online) Advent Calendar?

We grew up with advent calendars. There was so much excitement and anticipation when, starting December 1, we opened a window a day for 24 days until Christmas Day. Back then, we used cardboard advent calendars that unveiled an image or chocolate. Today, we want to bring Italy, family, Italian home cooking, and food gifts to you and the best way to do it is through this Italian online advent calendar.

Enjoy Italy's Christmas holidays from home. We'll bring Italy to you ... regardless of where you are in the world.

Have You Met the Local Aromas Family in Italy?

We are such a typical Italian family! You've got the parents (which are also grandparents), the super social and crazy, the quiet nerds, the messy, and the perfectionists. If there is one thing we have in common, it's the values we share ... family, the simple things, enjoying our company (that's when we can get really loud!), home cooking. Valeria and Benedetta are the Foodie Sisters in Italy. Mamma Giuliana, Carla, and Cristina are our home chefs. Papà Riccardo is the family's official taster. Eric is our wine, beer, and anything-with-alcohol expert. And Giampaolo is our Director of Photography.

We are the Local Aromas Family in Italy and you are welcome to join our (fun and crazy!) family. Together we laugh, cook, share our stories, and simply enjoy each other.

What You Get With Our Online Advent Calendar

Italy, home cooking, and family. That pretty much describes it all! With this 2nd edition of our Italian online advent calendar, we want to bring Italy to you. We selected 24 traditional Italian Christmas dishes and food gifts and then we filled the advent calendar with extra bonuses: Italian Christmas songs, an exclusive lifetime discount to our Italian Online School, and access to the Local Aromas private online Christmas Party. Thanks to Giampaolo's amazing videos, you can see how Cristina, Carla, and Mamma Giuliana prepare each recipe from scratch. Plus Eric has paired each dish to an Italian wine. From antipasti (appetizers) to primi (1st course dishes) and secondi (2nd course dishes), from dolci (desserts) to homemade food gifts, all recipes are available in English and Italian as downloadable PDFs.

24 traditional Italian Christmas recipes and food gifts, video recipes, Italian food and wine pairing, and lots of bonus content!

Organize a Private Italian Experience Gift & Present

Have you ever thought of giving someone an experience as a gift? It is a present filled with future memories. This year, along with our 2021 Advent Calendar where we bring Italy to your homes, we wanted to do more ... we wanted to bring people together! So we have created a selection of experiences from Italy that are private, live, and online. And the cool thing is that you can invite as many people as you want (ok, maximum 90!). No matter where you, your friends, your family, and your co-workers live, you can all come together to create a lifetime memory.

Because after all, time spent with your loved ones is the best gift of all!
