This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. It was amazing to learn essential cooking skills for a wonderful chef in his beautiful home. We loved every minute of it and would recommend the experience to anyone.

This was one of our most memorable experiences during our whole trip. Chef Giuseppe was fantastic! To start our day, he took out shopping to several food vendors to show was how to choose the foods we would be using later on for our meal. You can tell that Chef Giuseppe loves cooking and loves teaching people. He opened his beautiful home to us and taught us how to cook stuffed ravioli all from scratch, stuffed zucchini flowers, a ragu, and a sabayon with fresh figs and berries. To top it off, he provides you with an apron, a recipe book, a diploma, and some bay leaves from his personal garden. If we ever have the chance to take another of his cooking classes, we're DEFINITELY doing it.

I had a great day and learned so much about buying food in the markets and then learning how to prepare and present it in Guiseppe's beautiful kitchen. The other participants were friendly and we all enjoyed a delicious meal together after our hard work.

I can't rate this day highly enough, it was a fantastic start to our Tuscan holiday and Giuseppe is a wonderful host and teacher. We first walked to the local shops to buy our ingredients, then cooked our 4 dishes before sitting to eat our creations in Giuseppe's beautiful dinning room.

We had a fabulous day. Really enjoyed the walk around Lucca to the fresh produce stores, the olive oil tastings, the cooking accompanied by great wines, a beautiful apartment in which to experience it all - and of course eating the fruits of our labour. Would highly recommend

This was one of our best days in Italy. Giuseppe is a charming and knowledgeable chef and host. Starting at a market and bakery we got the items for our 3 course lunch. Then walked to his beautiful Lucca apartment with gleaming kitchen, work stations outfitted for us and gorgeous dining
room. He is perfectly organized so each step went perfectly. Tasting wine, cheese, bread as we cooked out way to a excellent lunch. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in Italian cuisine and just a great way to spend a morning in Lucca. Also a convenient location you can walk to.
