Fun and Practical Florentine In-home cooking instructions
, Oct 2019
We had a wonderful experience with our In-home chef, Alessio. He was honest and helpful with purchases of ingredients. His instructions and tips to authentic Italian cooking were easy to understand and replicate. He had even gone into the woods to pick fresh porcini mushrooms the day prior to our class for use with our dish. Highly recommended.

Highlight of trip

Florence Market Tour, Pasta Making Class & Traditional Tuscan Lunch with a Local | May 2019
Four of us spent an amazing day with Patrizia. We meet at the market, selected a menu and shopped for the fresh produce and meat. Our day with her was filled with amazing food, an excellent cooking class, wine and delicious meal we helped her prepare. I love to cook and I learned tips about Italian cooking I did not know. Patrizia is delightful, interesting and knowledgeable about food, wine and her beautiful Florence. We loved the experience.
