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.
Amazing. Outstanding. Delicious. Should be a must for everyone. Food was great. Lessons easy to follow. The chef was informational yet, entertaining. The visit to the market was marvelous as was the lecture by the market person. Loved the olive oil and vinegar demos.
This is a must do for everyone!!! Great experience! Great chefs!!
We couldn't have been happier with our cooking school experience! From our visit to the market to the making of the pasta, we loved it all. Our teacher was not only helpful and entertaining, but very patient as we learned how to cook and finally enjoy our meal together. We whole heartedly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn to cook Italian, and have a wonderful day.

The Italian cooking class tour was exceptional--it unfolded exactly as advertised online. The initial visit to the Florence food market was outstanding. Sonya treated us to hands on demonstration and tasting of the culinary jewels of Italy: pane, olio, balsamico, parmiagiano, vino . . . truly wonderful. Andrea, our chef teacher, was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. His teaching method was easy to follow, and he made everyone feel special. As advertised we prepared tiramisu, handmade paparadelle and ravioli, bolognese sauce--all from scratch and with our own hands under the skilled eye of Chef Andrea. And then, we got to eat--buonissimo! An overall 5 stars!
The chef was very good and the trip to the market to purchase the food for our meal preparation was a great added touch to the experience. I went alone and met some very nice people from all over the world. Highly recommend this experience.
My family and I had a blast! We learned so many new things. We cannot wait to try it all at home!
We highly recommend this class to anyone that wants that extra something during their visit to Florence. The head chef Giovanni was an outstanding teacher who kept everyone's interest and made the class fun and informative. The food quality is top notch and the finished product made our mouths water!
Take this class!
We were lucky enough to only have a very small group of 4 and so we got lots of one to one teaching time from Chef Giovanni. The visit to the market was wonderful and we learnt so much about olive oil, cheeses and balsamic, and the tastings were great. We enjoyed preparing and then eating pasta two ways and Tiramisu with some lovely Chianti wine. It was a great day and well worth doing if you're in Florence and want a break from the museums and palazzo's.
Great deal of fun and learn a lot about Italian cooking while enjoying a wonderful meal.
A very special experience with much much fun!
The two Sefs are very polite, they guided us to the central market ( a very nice tour and tasting of the local products). The only drawback is that in the market the prices of the products are extremely high!
The cooking class was very educating and fun. We were 26 people and with good organisation it is not a problem at all!
Afterwards, we had the dinner of what we produced plus some wine!
Just have in mind that the class - dinner ends at about 5 pm.
I definetely recommend it to singles, couples and families with children!
One of the best tours I have done on my holiday. This is highly recommended for anyone who wants to experience true Italian cooking and taste some amazing food at the end. Two thumbs up to our chiefs Julio and Davide who were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and somewhat easy on the eye.
A lot of fun, got to make homemade ravioli, tiramisu and Bolognese sauce (and eat our creations while sipping on some wine). Visiting the market and watching the demonstration was very informative and delicious (we got to sample)
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to be a little creative on their vacation. There were people of all ages in our group.
Excellent! So much fun and informative.
Chefs Davide and Julio were wonderful and lots of fun.
Now I'm going to make home made pasta at home!
This was a highlight again and this is the only time my husband had made anything the entire time I have known him. Our guide and his partner were great chiefs and all the tour interactions when we went to the market were the greatest.
Loved this class. Can hardly wait till I get home to try out the recipes. I am going back tonight to take the pizza making class!
It was great, learned so much about olive oil and balsamic vinegar and the cheeses in the market, what a great place, and them the cooking class was a blast . Chef Giovanni was so informative and we learned a lot and of course the lunch and wine were wonderful, a must in Florence
Loved everything about this tour. We had the most fantastic day. Great company, knowledgable chef and we cooked some amazing authentic Italian food. This is a "must do" tour for anyone visiting Florence
Absolutely delightful. Andrea and Julio were the best. They showed great patience with our group. Our end product (lunch) was delicious.
I loved my cooking class! It seemed the appropriate thing to do in Florence, Italy. We learned to make tiramisu, pasta(!), and a few sauces. We received recipes to bring home with us, as well. The visit to the market was a big highlight.
A great day learning to make tiramisu and homemade pasta with Chefs David's and Julio. Great information at the Mercato Centrale. We each made our own tiramisu, which was the best tiramisu I've eve had. The pasa th we all made and the Bolognese sauce as well as the sage butter sauces were the best we had in the 2 weeks we were in Firenze. We head back to California with our new recipes and new abilities to create delicious Italian food. The class lasted from 10 am to after 4 pm, so it is an all day affair. I wouldn't highly recommend this class.
