The experience with the chef at the market was wonderful, then off to the farm to prepare the days menu. Pasta with a meat ragu and we made tiramasu, too! Be sure to take a few extra euro to purchase the olive oil and the vinegar. We were also served the best bruschetta and salade of tomatoes and
Well organized and lots of fun while learning several traditional Italian dishes. The trip through the market before we got in the kitchen was great and very informative. We are looking forward to making our new recipes now that we are back home.
Of all the tours we did throughout Europe, this one was one of the funnest and best. The chefs were funny and personable. They really cared about showing you a great Italian cooking experience. They were very knowledgeable and even patient with the less kitchen-inclined people like me in the group! The market shopping experience would have been nice though. It's closed on Sundays so we couldn't go, but our travel plans were tight, so if you can I would recommend going on a different day to have the full experience.
Amazing!!! but can i say first off, my wife was recently diagnosed with food alergies and though we were not aware of this at the time of booking this course, our chefs (davide and julio) were truly great and made every effort to make and teach food she could make and eat. We were truly grateful...
I have to say that since learning some of the local foods, we have already started utilising these skills learnt in our everyday cooking. Its a fun day for all, made even more enjoyable with the chefs knowledge and humour.
Would i recommend or do this again i most certainly would, its a chance to try something different and learn the ways of the locals. We are already contemplating there other courses on a return visit!!!
Molto Buono! Gulio and David were fantastic, fun and great chefs. This made our trip to Florence so much more meaningful - taking us away from the tourist-flocked museums and streets and giving our family hands-on lesson in how to be a real Italian....cook! I did NOT like tiramisu before this class. The way David showed us to prepare it was such a departure from the American way. And I gladly ate every last bit. The pasta prep led by Gulio was so fun and the end-product tasted amazing. The bolognese sauce, including David's secret ingredient, was one of the best I've ever tasted. Both Gulio and David took time to help my kids (8 and 11 years old) and were so kind. Truly a wonderful experience for our whole family. We can't wait to have a family pasta night at home with the recipes!
My mom and I LOOOOOVED this cooking class. The instructors were not only friendly and informative, but easy to learn from as well. The class was well-organized, super fun and useful! I have already recommended it to many people!!!
A fifteen person class in an appropriately cozy environment. Personable and fun instructors; both English speaking (one native). Fun and informative for the novice or more experienced cook. Easy to follow recipes that will be used after the trip has ended and you've returned home. A worthwhile afternoon.
The best thing we did in Italy during our two week stay was this cooking class. It was also the best food we we tasted. Our chef Giuseppe, was amazing. I highly recommend this class!
This was a fun tour. It was nice to be able to meet people from other places in the world and our tour guides were fantastic and fun.
Did this with my boyfriend during vacation. Such a cool experience that broke up the typical sightseeing tours we were doing. Varying ages in the class- we are late20/early30s- which made the group dynamic and fun.
Highly recommended. Money spent is well worth it.
Absolutely the VERY best! Because of the holiday we did not get to go to the market, but the two chefs made up for that with a fun, informative class. We all made a great meal, the food was delicious, and we all laughed a lot! This is a must do in Florence!
Fantastic company. Great experience. I booked another class that very night which was also very enjoyable.
Fabulous. The chefs were great and the food even better. Thoroughly enjoyed!
The small group cooking class is a great way to spend a few hours in Florence! Our class was held at a top notch cooking school facility (formerly a restaurant) and our instructor, Giuseppe, was fantastic. We made ravioli, bolognese sauce, and tiramisu, all of which was enjoyed with red wine from the region at the end of class. Fortunately the class let out mid-afternoon so we had some free time left to enjoy more of Florence.
