Cooking Classes

This season, join us at Rowland House for an immersive culinary experience! Typically available exclusively for whole house rentals, we’ve selected seven special nights to open the doors of Rowland House and share with you some of our best kitchen secrets. Each class offers two working stations — one in the kitchen of Rowland House and one elsewhere in the home — each staffed with members of our team who are experts in what they do. These classes are designed to be intimate and hands-on, so come with questions and experience or just be curious and open to adventure — all are welcome!

Each class includes overnight accommodations in a luxurious room at Rowland House. After settling into your room, gather in the foyer at 6:00 p.m. and get cooking! Once the instructional portion of the evening is over, take a seat around the dining room table and enjoy the meal you’ve just created. In the morning, you’ll find the recipes from the evening and a special gift waiting for you to take home.

Please call us at 315.364.8888 to place your reservation. These classes make excellent gifts for friends and family who already have everything they need — we’d be happy to put together a special gift presentation for you! With advance notice, we can accommodate almost all dietary requests and needs. All prices are inclusive of tax and gratuity.

 

Perfect Pasta

Join us in the kitchen as we reveal the secrets that make our house-made pasta so delicious. We’ll make different types of pasta and a few classic sauces — they’re easier than you think, and you don’t need a kitchen full of expensive equipment to replicate the results at home. In the dining room, dive into a lesson on arranging the perfect cheese board, and learn (and taste!) the best wine pairings for each. Cheese, pasta, sauce, and wine — sounds like perfection to us.

After the meal is prepped, sit down with your classmates and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Sleep soundly in one of our luxurious Rowland House guestrooms, and depart Aurora in the morning with the recipes from the evening and a special take-home gift in tow.

Pizza! Pizza!

Did you know that our charming bakery transforms into a pizzeria every night? We’ve made a name for ourselves for pizza in this area — and now the tricks we spent months learning can be yours! Our chefs will show you how to make the perfect pizza dough and will open your eyes to new and creative toppings. In the dining room, take part in a fun and engaging tasting of different beers both local and international.
