Firstly, the location and facilities were stunning.....an enviable kitchen. Isak and Carmela were a fun pair, who made the whole day enjoyable and informative.....as an Aussie I have come home inspired to cook my own pasta and pizza and learnt some valuable italian tips when using garlic, balsamic, basil, tomatoes and oil.....lotsa oil! Although our group was large, we all very quickly shared a common experience of food and cooking amongst friends. Thanks Isak and Carmela.

Funny, interesting tour and the cooking class was informative and very delicious. Take good notes during the cooking class because some of the tips and tricks didn’t make it into the recipes they email you .

This was our family of five's favorite thing we did on our 9 day trip to Italy. We enjoyed the market tour to buy the food we would be cooking and thought our guide Isaac was a very knowledgeable and really funny. The farmhouse such a beautiful, cool place to do this with a great view. Chef Carmella was so fun and full of energy. The pizza people that came in were also very friendly and fun. We really enjoyed learning to make bruschetta which ended up being the best I have ever had and also the fresh pasta from scratch. The ragu sauce we made was excellent and the pork roast/ roasted potatoes were delicious. The wine Chianti Classico was very good and you could have as much as you wanted. There was so much to eat. We left quite happy and haven't stopped talking about it since. Simply a great day. They emailed us the recipes we made and I'm going to do an Italy night at our house sometime soon to show off my new skills

This was among if not THE best part of our week in Florence, Siena and Rome! Izak was knowledgeable and entertaining, plus offered real hands-on cooking tips. The ffarmhouse was fantastic, and Carmella was a joy. The pizza chefs were equally entertaining and knowlegeable We absolutely loved every minute of our day. Highly recommend.

Everything about this day was perfect! Great food, great company, great setting. From the market tour in the morning where we met some of the local producers with our guide Isaac, then on to the amazing farm house where we met the vivacious Carmella, who along with Isaac, taught us to cook some of the best food I've ever eaten. A perfect mix of learning, working, relaxing, eating and drinking. The day ran so smoothly with every little detail being thought about. Our wonderful small group of eight was the perfect size. We were very lucky indeed! I would highly, highly recommend this day to anyone coming to Florence and wanting a feast for every one of your senses. Thank you Isaac, Carmella and Walkabot Tours!!!

From start to finish this was the best cooking class experience I have had. Our chef/guide Isaac was great taking us through the central market where he was known to every vendor, and the farmhouse was beautiful. He and Carmela included everyone in the cooking lessons and we enjoyed a great meal!

This was just what I'd wanted ! More a 'Meet and greet with a side of food preparation taught to us by a fantastic Chef/guide Issac along with Carmela, and two Italian guys teaching us prepping and cooking Pizza ! Started with us meeting at the St. Novella Train Station, walked to a fantastic local Market to get our ingredients and then a relaxing Bus ride to the Farm House a few Kilometers out of Florence. I never knew just how easy and fun it is to make Pasta and Tiramisu from scratch. For me being somewhat an introvert, the atmosphere is so relaxing, so fun might be the 2-4 glasses of Chianti meeting people from all across the world. This is what people mean by having a vacation 'experience in every way. Take a day off from being a tourist and learn Italian cooking in a fun way, have some Wine,Coffee, and darn good food that most of which you made and get to know people from all over the globe. A fun thing for couples and for the loner ME !! to do. I wish I was better at writing a review, but bottom line, you will love doing this !! Why, when I return to Florence, I see a refresher course in my future !! A special 'Hello' to the Aussie couple . Was great to meet you two !!

This was well worth spending a day of our Florence trip. The market tour prior to the class was terrific--wish we could have had a little free time to spend there, and it gave us time to visit a part of the city I wouldn't have seen otherwise! The class itself was fantastic! Isak and Marcella are a great team and the Pizza guys did an wonderful job while entertaining all of us. We learned some excellent techniques, had a meal that lasted all afternoon, and everyone agreed in our group that this was one of the highlights of our trip!

This was the highlight of our trip to Florence! My husband and I left eager to try some of these techniques on our own but more than that, it was just fun. All of the staff were so very pleasant, organized, eager - very well put-together program! And the setting was pretty amazing as well - down to the huge black-and-white, teddy-bear-of-a-dog mascot. I would recommend this in a heartbeat, for the food, the view, the education, and the camaraderie!

We have taken a number of Viator city tours and have always been pleased, but the cooking class and market tour was something really different for us...and it was fantastic choice!!! The event started with a tour of a market where we purchased fresh ingredients and where our chef and guide Issac explained what ingredients to buy and why as he showed us the sights. Then we boarded a bus to a beautiful Tuscan venue set on a hill above Florence. The modern kitchen and dining facility was modern and well equipped, and it was located in a beautiful Tuscan farm. We quickly met our fellow classmates and bonded as a group of foodies as we learn Ed how to prepare and cook some basic Italian dishes from Issac and his Italian speaking chef cohort Carmella. We were concerned about being in a group setting for a number of hours, but market tour and class our most memorable event and a highlight of our time in Florence. We received a follow up email about a week after our event with all the recipes that we worked on together. We give the tour, Issac and Carmella five stars! Our only negative comment is that it was a little challenging hearing Issac over the headphones as we maneuvered through the market, but we all adjusted...and the market tour was well worth the effort.

We really enjoyed our class and the relaxation and fun it provided! Isak and Carmela were a dynamic duo and the pace of the day was just what we were looking for. It was fun to learn new recipes but we never felt stressed or pressed to do anything at an uncomfortable pace. The views were amazing from the farmhouse as well! Every dish we ate was delicious and the Chianti Classico was great too. I highly recommend this experience!

What a great day. Market shopping, beautiful site just outside of Florence. Interesting guides and instructors. Happy atmosphere. Learned to make pizza, bruschetta, pasta, ragu sauce, and tiramisu. No better way to spend the day.

The cooking class is awesome with passionate instructors including cemela and istak! They all taught with patience and are humorous! We made toast, pasta, pizza, roasted pork and tiramisu together.

The cooking studio is cozy with modern equipment. Teachers also had an excellent time management.
