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.
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!
