My daughter and I loved this tour! The hosts were so fun to work with and we learned so much and we are both experienced cooks. The food we created was delicious and there was plenty to go around. We are not coffee or wine drinkers and they made accommodations for this: we dipped our tiramisu cookies in milk instead of coffee and we were offered soda instead of the wine. I highly recommend this tour!
Our cooking experience was excellent
Our chef Alessio was very engaging
Taught each step very well and the food was fabulous
We will always remember this day!
So much fun. Our chef, Giovanni, taught us to make our own tiramisu, pasta, and 2 sauces. Setting was lovely, attention was good, and food was among the best we had in Italy. Best of all, we got sent home with recipes so we can make it all again! if you're a foodie, this is well worth spending a day of your vacation.
The cooking staff was entertaining and my wife three daughters, and I really enjoyed it. The group was only 21 and they said there was room for 25; I don't think that is realistic once you consider the amount of counter space you need for the rolling pins.

The two chefs were thorough, humorous, knowledgeable, charismatic and not bad to look at! ;)
The food we cooked was amazing and overall I learned a lot and had a great time. Definitely recommend!
This was definitely I highlight of our trip. I went with my 15 year old daughter and she couldn't stop talking about it. The chefs were great and so much fun. I would love to do this again.
Fantastic, fun and inspiring. Everyone made us feel at home and the food was awesome which we made.3 course we were so full after but well worth going and doing. The market tour with this was really helpful to see what the locals eat and buy, really good truffles in the market place.
Thanks to all who made our day so special

I booked this class for both me and my husband. I would give this a 5 star rating. The shopping trip, the explanations and the cooking class itself was not only informative but entertaining. Next time I'm in Florence i will definitely book another class.
Very informative and a great deal of fun. The instructors explained the directions in easy to understand terms and were very helpful.
So much fun. Entire staff had great personalities. Got all involved. Our group of five all enjoyed it
What a fun 1/2 day! From the market to the prep, wine tasting and lunch...just a great day doing something I never...ever...do. Cook. It really is low pressure for anyone out there like me that really has no cooking skills. Great instructors/chefs give you clear info in a fun setting. I walked away full of food and full of accomplishment. Highly recommend!
great fun and we made great food!
instructors were knowledgeable and made it easy for us
Really it was perfect - we had a great Chef, very well spoken and willing to offer lots of tips and tricks. He took us to the market then a short walk to the cooking school. Only complaint is that we ate too much. Would really recommend this one - ten people in the class, we had a great time and learned along the way.
We loved the cooking class! Alessio and Alain were amazing teachers! There ended up being nine people in the class and it was a lot of fun. We can't wait to get back home and try making pasta and dessert on our own. We want to come back to Italy for more cooking classes!
The chefs were great, they kept us engaged and we learned a lot. I highly recommend this tour.
We had such a fun time in the class and have tried the recipes at home. Such a fun souvenir from our trip. :
We had a great time and have even recreated the recipes once we got home. We had bruschetta, made raviolis and pasta from scratch and made tiramisu. We toured the market beforehand and got the ingredients for the lunch. The only negative comment would be finding the meeting place. We were using our ph GPS and even then it took a while to locate the meeting place. It might be easier to meet at the market place since that is a central location that is easy to find.
Foi muito divertido!
Primeiro o chef nos leva ao mercado central para conhecermos alguns dos ingredientes e depois vamos até a cozinha onde outro chef esta a nossa espera. Aprendemos a fazer a pasta italiana, o tiramisu e o molho alla bolognese. O almoço está incluso nessa diversão! no final recebemos um certificado e um livro com as receitas.
We were looking for an Italian cooking class to make fresh pasta,(not just pizza) and it exceeded our expectations. The knowledge, expertise and humour from chefs Julio and Andrea made our experience one of our most memorable ever! Janeen from Canada
We had a brilliant day and would thoroughly recommend it. We were taken to the market and then came back to the kitchen to learn to make Tiramisu, Tagliatelle with authentic Bolognese sauce and Ravioli, all made from scratch. The Chef then produced a bottle of Chianti and we sat and ate our results together. And all in the centre of Florence a few metres from the Duomo!
We LOVED our cooking class with Davide and Alessio. They are skilled chefs and facilitated the class so that we all had a hands on experience. The menu was delicious and the cooking experience memorable. I have recommended it to friends. Eloise ( Sept. 2014)
