Wonderful day! Pick-up was easy and the ride to the farm allowed us to see some of the countryside. As it turned out, only my daughter and I were there this day, so it was like a private cooking class. The owner/chef does not speak English so there was an interpreter. However, my daughter lives in Florence and speaks Italian so she and the chef had long conversations as we cooked. After being shown around a goat, ducks, a goose, a pony, cats and an olive grove, we were served wonderful antipasto with prosecco. Then we cooked! The same ragu, pork loin in wine, from scratch pasta and tirimisu that others have talked about. Then we ate and drank wine from the farm! Would do this again and recommend.

My favorite day of my trip to Italy!!! There were only 4 of us in the class and so it felt like a day spent with friends drinking wine and eating great food. We made fresh pasta, pork loin in a wine sauce and tiramisu! I loved every minute of this day and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing day of drinking lots of wine and eating authentic Tuscan food.

This was a lovely cooking experience and I highly recommend it! We learnt how to make several dishes and our hosts were amendable as they could be to our vegetarian diet. The scenery was amazing and the company was incredible!

The hosts were terrific! We were the only three in the class - once in a lifetime experience. The fact that they picked us up from Florence and brought us back made it super easy. Highly tecommend. We and #39;ll be talking about this for years. And the food we made was five-star too! Send the recipes!

What an incredible day! The farm is charming, the people were so kind, and the experience was one that I will never forget. As a solo traveler, it was the perfect way to relax from busy Florence. Very small group, so you can participate in every step! Highly recommended!

This tour did not start well. The instructions for the meeting spot was not clear. We roamed around for 20 minutes and finally had to spend money for a mobile call. That was very frustrating. Worst of all the tour guide did not get it. However, we went with it and met some very nice people who joined us at the farm house for the cooking class. If you are serious about cooking, you wouldn't like this class because it is very quick and casual. The cooking instructor was friendly and a great hostess. She greeted us with big smile and tried her best English isn't her first language to teach us how to roll gnocchi. I enjoyed trying my hand at rolling out gnocchi, and making the tiramisu. You should know that the Tuscan farm house is rustic. That means if you are squeamish with farm animals and their droppings within 5/10 feet of you, you should not sign up for this particular tour. Also you are picked up in a non-AC'd vehicle that belongs to the farmer. So if you don't like the heat, stay out of his car. Otherwise, if you are want a lazy and casual afternoon in a Tuscan farm, then you could have a good time.

WOW This was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. So much fun, so much food, so much wine... I cannot recommend this trip too highly. My wife and I just had a blast. The hosts were great, and it seemed like you had joined an Italian family for the day. THE SMALL CLASS SIZE IS WHAT IS THE BEST PART. Other classes that we saw said class limited to 16 to keep the experience .... HA! There were two couples and that is the way to go!!! Thank you all for a wonderful day and sorry it took so long to get this written

Leonardo was very entertaining and Louise our chef was delightfully talented and a good teacher.
I liked that she shared the Italian culture with us. WE learned that farmers, families, and workers enjoy meals together. Robbie- the owner of the farm makes his own wine we shared that too. They are very generous people and I would highly recommend this opportunity to visitors to Tuscany. By the way my gnocchi were great!

We wanted a real Tuscan experience and we got it! It was rustic and slightly unorganized but filled with fun, good food, local wine, laughs and a warm welcoming farm family. Our day at Fattoria Palaia was one of the most authentic times in Italy. Louise showed us how to prepare a meal that included gnocchi and tiramisu. Roberto made us feel at home and showed us around his farm. If you are looking for a real taste of Italy, not a cookie-cutter cooking class this might be for you! An excellent day in Tuscany
