BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
You would hardly find more experienced Italian chefs in Prague than those working at Aromi, and La Finestra. Aromi was named the best new restaurant in the Czech Republic by Condé Nast Traveler in 2005 and was ranked among the top 10 new restaurants in the world. In the same year, Aromi received the Grand Award Top Ten Best Restaurants distinction from the public. Additionally, the team of Michelin inspectors awarded Aromi their “Bib Gourmand” for good food at moderate prices for five consecutive years.
The key person responsible for this huge success is the owner and head chef Riccardo Lucque. He makes sure only the finest and freshest ingredients are used and their natural flavours are preserved (he gets most of them from Italy!). Aromi is famous for serving exquisite fish and seafood — you get to choose from a variety of fresh fish prepared in front of your eyes. It is not surprising that Riccardo Lucque and his restaurant were the ones taking care of the Pope’s diet during his Prague visit.

Italian cuisine might be all about simplicity, but learning to pull it off correctly is anything but simple! Now, thanks to this exclusive experience from Lime&Tonic, you'll learn how to prepare real Italian specialties under the guidance of Italian chefs from the award-winning restaurants Aromi, and La Finestra. Soon you'll be making these Italian masterpieces with ease.
Being the cuisine of a Mediterranean country, Italian meals often rely on seafood. Accordingly, some of the courses will focus on seafood — Aromi's speciality. Of course, pasta is equally integral to the Italian kitchen, and by looking over the shoulder of pasta master Davide Lagomarsino, you'll find out how to best prepare this seemingly simple staple.
Are you in search of new seasonal recipes? You're in luck! Take the mushroom course, the pumpkin course, the venison preparation course, or the traditional Christmas menu course. Consider yourself an advanced cook? There'll be several lessons for you, such as the one that focuses on "techniques of presenting food in a modern way — from starter to main course."
Because of its focus on fresh ingredients, Italian cuisine is particularly influenced by resource availability, which varies from region to region. So throughout the classes, you'll learn about the flavours typical for southern Italy, Napoli or Tuscany. And you'll discover the particular magic that happens through the fusion of Czech and Italian cuisines.
Best of all, the cooking classes are accompanied by Italian wines selected by Aromi sommeliers!
