We participated in 3 classes during our stay and this one was by far our favorite! Giuseppe started our class with a walk around town to pick up fresh supplies needed for the day ahead. We then went to his villa which is absolutely AMAZING inside and prepared our meals. Giuseppe had a lot of patience with us and everything we cooked was amazing! I would definitely recommend this class to everyone!
What a fun experience. Chef Giuseppe is a very warm and charming host. He took our group of 8 from three different continents on a tour of his favorite markets and bakeries and then to his beautiful home where we all enjoyed pitching in on the prep work while sampling local wines. We learned a lot about the local olive oils and cheeses as well as how to master the art of cooking risotto which was a particular breakthrough for me. My husband and I would certainly do this again in a heartbeat.
This was the highlight of our 10 days in Italy! I would highly recommend this class to everyone!! Chef Giuseppe is such a charismatic and professional chef, with wonderful stories and good instruction on cooking. The class was very hands on, so we felt like we truly made the meal, and the wine we enjoyed was phenomenal. The small class of 8 was perfect, so we could all chat and participate, and the food was delicious. I'd come back to Lucca again just to take another class with Chef Giuseppe. This is a MUST-DO while in Tuscany.
We LOVED our cooking class in Lucca! Chef Giuseppe was top notch. From the local markets and stores to the Chef's beautiful home, and from the delicious dishes to the thoughtful details, every minute of this experience was magic. This was our favorite part of our trip to Italy. We cannot recommend this experience enough!!
Very fun cooking class, We recommend it!
Very nice and accommodating. His home was very lovely and the decorations were personalized and provided a very welcoming ambience. The trip through the town to gather ingredients was charming and informative. Everyone was involved in meal preparation and the food was delicious! Chef G was awesome and very charming!
Anyone visiting Lucca who doesn't do this is missing out on the highlight of the trip to Italy! Chef Giuseppe is charming and a great guide as we wove through the tiny streets of Lucca buying goods that later became our dinner. We were treated to his favorite markets and bakeries. Cooking in a small group of 7 3 men, 4 women while sipping prosecco was a delight in his beautiful home kitchen. The dinner that was prepared was as expected a 5 star event. The surroundings of his gorgeous apartment were out of a magazine. We were treated to about 6 hours of fun and thought it was a great value for the price. We would go again. We left with a gift from Chef Giuseppe - bay leaves and a small recipe booklet.
Wonderful day! The chef was so friendly, knowledgeable and gregarious! We did a small walking tour to some very cool local shops....I got one of my best pictures of the trip in the focaccia store! The setting for the class was in his beautiful palazzo....it felt like we were walking into an architectural digest set! The little details they thought of....down to bay leaves from their personal tree wrapped to take as a souvenir- all made it special! Our group has two 13 year olds and 3 couples and everyone loved the day!
I had to talk my husband into doing this cooking class with me while we were in Lucca. We both absolutely loved it. It was worth every penny and then some. The chef did an outstanding job. We went to several local markets to buy what we needed for our meal which was cool. He took us into his beautiful home where we prepared our delicious meal. We ate the dinner at an exquisite dining table complete with wine, Expresso and lemon cello. It was a highlight of our trip. Ellen
Don't miss this!!! Chef Giuseppe is truly truly a delight! This may have been our best meal in Lucca!! : It was the perfect amount of time! We did this early in our vacation- which was great, because Giuseppe showed us his favorite bakery, bread shop and vegetable market...then we were able to enjoy those places for the rest of our vacation too!
