Learned to cook 3 different pastas and sauces and panna cotta for a dessert! What we really enjoyed was sampling the food we just made with fellow students over some wines in the cellar downstairs. Highly recommend if you are looking to do something other than usual sightseeing.

This class was such a blast! We made 3 types of pasts, sauces and pana cotta. Our instructor, Alessandro, was so entertaining, keeping us all laughing while at the same time teaching us his skills. After we prepared the food, the chefs served us the delicious food we had made. They sent us home with the recipes...Can't wait to try making these pastas at home! Definitely recommend this class.

My husband and I really enjoyed our pasta making experience and Alessandro was really good at coaching us. After the course we cooked everything and enjoyed the food we had done with a glass of good wine. It was wonderful and relaxing. We suggest this activity to all who like to cook and enjoy good food. We now have the 3 recipes to cook this at home.

Absolutely amazing! Our chef was funny and witty and very patient with everyone. The food was the most flavorful in Florence. If in Florence ever again I would take this course. The one down side is that viator says the group max is 12, however the cooking venue holds 20. 4 groups of 5, 3 chefs.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2013

So much fun! And the food was excellent. You won't leave an expert in pasta and the recipes will need to be converted to English units. My kids loved it and we would do it again.
