We really enjoyed our cooking day. Francesco was easy to understand, entertaining, and taught us all a few new tricks in the kitchen. The food we prepared was delicious, and the house was fabulous.
It seems as though my last review was deleted-
I will keep this one short and sweet.
Our guide was fantastic, and he picked us up from Rome, took us shopping for our ingredients, and finally to San MArzano, a small town where our new kitchen was waiting for us. It was small, but comfortable and hospitable.
We made really delicious dishes, and were given a link to the recipes so that we can enjoy them at home. I would do this all over again, I could not have asked for a better experience.
10/10!! DO THIS!!!
This was the perfect way to spend our last day in Italy. Monica was warm and personable and made the day a great experience for all of us. We learned a lot from her about cooking, especially making pasta, and had one of our best meals in Italy!
I absolutely loved this activity. The chef and his assistant were amazing and words cannot describe the beaty of the location. One of my favorite experiences of my two and a half week tour of Italy.
One of the highlights of our trip. Small group experience we will never forget. The little town we shopped for ingredients, the guide/chef Frederico?was very amiable and the small house was exactly what I pictured a small town house in northern Italy to be. The food was superb and more importantly the memories will be unforgettable.
Does this class take place in a real medieval village? Yes. Is the meal that is prepared delicious and fun to learn? Yes. Is this class worth a day of your vacation and money it costs? Well, yes!
Francesco was our van driver and chef for the day. The class is small and intimate, allowing everyone to get to know each other the other family we met were Aussies. On the way to the class 40 minutes outside Rome we all stopped at various shops for the ingredients for the meal: butcher, produce stand, and cheese shop--which doubled as a village convenience store that also sold mops and brooms and American cereal.
The medieval home in which we cooked was indeed ancient, however the inside was beautiful and renovated, and it included air conditioning! It was perched over a cliff and looked down upon a waterfall.
Creating the classic Italian meal was not only fun, it was educational and gave me a sense of accomplishment--I never thought I could make my own pasta. And I do not exaggerate when I say that the meal we created was as good if not better than any meal I ate in a Roman restaurant and we ate in some pretty great restaurants while there.
Amazing experience, great chef and wonderful place!
This was the best experience ever. From the moment it began till the last drop off in the city of Rome it was well worth the money spent on this tour. Learned so much from Francesco who was the prefect host. There was a small group of us, we worked really well as a team and ate a lovely lunch that we prepared together. So if you love to cook and like meeting new people, then this is the tour for you. Do it you will not be disappointed.
The absolute highlight of our entire 2 week trip! I cannot rave enough about this excursion...Chef Francesco was perfect in everyway from the time he picked us up to the time he dropped us off. He was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. The ride and the location is exquisite. We had the greatest group and everyone truly enjoyed cooking and eating together. Some of the group even went out to dinner after to That's Amore which was delicious and so much fun.
This was a great tour, set in a small town outside Rome. The food was wonderful and the class was fantastic. Small class setting really helps set the mood/style.
