This by far was one of the highlights of our trip. We had my family of 6 to include my husband, my 3 adult children, my 9 year old granddaughter and myself. The Chef was so engaging and the support staff was fabulous. Our dinner was spectacular! The value for price paid was beyond my expectations. We are anxious now to share our new found culinary talents with our family and friends at home. We plan on recreating the same meal and showing off our vacation pictures.
Bucket List Item CHECK! We loved everything about our authentic cooking class! The chefs were efficient, knowledgable, and fun! Our food was GREAT! Being able to sit down and enjoy our creations with wine was Devine! A definite must for anyone who wants to eat Italian (and who doesn't)!
The cooking class I attended was wonderful and so much fun. Alesandro (our chef) was awesome. Not only does he have a great personality but he was also a good sport with all of the joking around we did with him. We met so many nice people at the class and learned to make so many delicious dishes. This class is a must for anyone visiting Florence. It was one of my most favorite things I did while on vacation in Italy. If I ever get back, I'll do it all over again. Definitely a 5 star experience. Thanks for a wonderful time and a great experience.
This Tuscan cooking class was one of the favorite things my girlfriend and I did during our three week trip around Europe. There were two primary chefs and several helpers that handled about twenty people and they did a great job making sure each person had a task while also making sure that we all learned each recipe. We made four courses which I would range from easy to medium difficulty, but don't worry if you do not have any cooking experience because the chefs really do seem to want you to have a great experience and learn the recipes so they will provide plenty of instruction. What I liked is that each recipe required you to learn a new skill or at the very least allowed you to pick up a few tips and tricks from the chef. While recreating all four courses at home for a single meal would probably pretty challenging, each course (they provide a recipe book at the end) could really be its own standalone meal. After all the cooking was done we were taking to a really quaint wine cellar where we were served our meal (they paced each course nicely which provided plenty of time to relax and chat with the other participants) and provided plenty of wine! Overall, this was a really great experience.
We took a total of six tours while in Rome and Florence and this was the BEST ONE. We had so much fun both cooking and eating. The chefs/teachers were personable, funny, and very good cooks. It was great to have a "hands' on experience.At the end of the meal we were given the recipes that we tried. I did it at home a week later and it was delicious, just like when we cooked it in Florence.
We all loved it. Our session was rapid fire with plenty of chopping and laughing. The results were great!
What fun! The Chef, Alessandro, was wonderful. He was not only informative, he had a terrific sense of humor. Not only did we learn how to prepare a four course dinner, we got to eat it in a very charming wine cellar where bottles of wine were opened and served to us. Our class had people from Vegas, Philly, North Carolina, and England...Everyone enjoyed it... I would recommend this class to anyone. Donna D and Kim from Boston, MA

This was a fantastic evening. There was only one other couple so we had the chef and his assistant to the four of us.. The class was very organized and we turned out some wonderful and sophisticated food. I learned some good techniques. Our chef Alejandro was charming and entertaining. We all had good conversation and loved every bite along with good wine. It could not have been better!!!.
Some in our party were quietly dreading the prospect of a cooking evening but it turned out to be a whole lot of fun as we prepared a four course Italian meal under the expert guidance of their chefs. They were instructive and quick to rescue us when our efforts fell short of that required. The wine that we drank while preparing the meal and also when we were later eating what we had prepared ensured that we quickly made a lot of new friends. A different sort of holiday experience which we would be very happy to repeat.
I would highly recommend this class. We made 4 courses and enjoyed them with wine after the cooking was completed. The instructor was fun and informative.
