We loved every minute of it! I will definitely be making both the fresh pasta could not believe how easy it was as well as the ragu sauce.
Simone our chef was a wonderful host and really helped our technique.

This cooking class was one of our favorites in Italy! My husband and I took the cooking class with Simon in late-August 2017. We were picked up by a driver at the designated meeting spot on-time and driven to the site of the cooking class. There were 5 people total in this class. When we arrive Simon greeted us warmly and set everyone up with a cooking station and glass of wine! During our class we learned how to make pasta, brushetta, and tiramisu. My husband and I are beginners in terms of skill, and we felt this class was well-suited for our skill level. Simon was very hands on and described in detail everything we needed to know. After we finished cooking Simon lead us to the courtyard where a beautiful table was set for those in the class to enjoy our meal. It was a picture-perfect evening with great food and great company. We highly recommend this class for beginning-level chefs! We had an excellent evening and was sad when it was time for it to end.

This was by far one of the best things we did while visiting Siena. Simone was an amazing host for my fiancee and I. We made pasta together and the rest of the class we drank wine and watched while he talked us through each step of the rest of our meal. He had also set up a table for us outside where the two of us enjoyed dinner together. After we offered, Simone joined us and we had a great time hanging out and talking while we enjoyed some of the best food we had in Italy.

We had a really great night. The kitchen was in a Vineyard and the 3 of us were the only one and #39;s in the class. The chef was lovely and shared lots of tips. The meal was simple yet delicious and authentic. Highly recommended for an evening activity.

The class demonstration was excellent and fun. Be carefu though when booking the activity as the address provided on the booking invoice from Viator is NOT where the cooking demonstration is located. We walked in circles trying to find our meeting point which was evidently described in a separate email notification which we must have missed. So unless it is absolutely clear where the pickup point is, I would avoid this class altogether.

This didn't start out great. I was sent the wrong address and had to hustle to the pickup zone near Plaza Gramschi. Then my driver appeared and I hopped into a nice Mercedes for a ride to the Casa Frassia - about 20 minutes outside of Siena. Where in the heck were we going? Once I arrived, however, the chef, Simone, bag an to explain and had me start helping with food prep. Turned out there were only two of us in the cooking class and we did everything! It was a great experience. My only suggestion would be for Viator and the Company running the Tuscan Cooking class to make sure the location is correct in the email voucher confirmation.

As fit turned out, my wife and I were the only two participants in this class and thankfully it was not cancelled for that small number. With the one on one experience, we were able to prepare a delicious meal with the close guidance of our chef. We definitely learned new techniques and enjoyed the results of our efforts on the terrace above the restaurant. An enjoyable time, even with the three of us.

This cooking class was fun and informative. Small numbers meant everyone got to be involved with food prep and the meal was delicious. Lots of good tips and tricks for fail safe recipes to be reproduced at home.

This was a brilliant tour. We had so much fun and learned so much about Italian cooking. Our Chef was amazing! Julio was very passionate about his cooking and this definitely rubbed off on us. He was funny, engaging and clearly loves to teach others. We highly recommend this tour as it was certainly a highlight of our trip! You will not be disappointed :

Great class! Our chef was patient, funny and had the ability to make even beginners feel comfortable. The food that we made together was delicious. I can't wait to try it at home. This class was one of the high points of our trip.

This was a highlight of our trip to Italy. It was a nice break from all the sightseeing where we were experiencing to get into doing. The class size was perfect 8 people- 4 men/4 women, the chef/teachers were authentic one only spoke Italian! and warm. The 4-course meal we learned to cook was delicious. I got lots of practical tips and aha, that's how they do its. And sitting down and eating our food was delightful. Everyone in the class had a chance to prepare multiple parts of the meal and everyone pitched in to serve the meal. Cooking together is a fun activity and I'm really glad we did this! I would recommend this to anyone/everyone!

This was an extremely satisfying and pleasant experience, as well as a learning experience. It was especially interesting because 2 of the attendees were children, ages 4 and 6. They were extremely well behaved and really enjoyed cooking, especially rolling the dough. I only have one criticism...and that is the use of salt--especially in the mixture for the roast pork. An extremely hugh amount of salt was used, along with the spices and herbs. Perhaps the Italians don't suffer from high blood pressure, but for those of us who do, we need to cut back on the use of salt I know it adds a great deal to the flavor. All in all it was a very pleasant experience and I look forward to making some of the dishes.

A truly wonderful evening of learning and cooking. Lella and Francisco together with Anna interpreter did a fantastic job. Very glad we decided to do it. Eating what we helped to prepare topped it off beautifully.

A great cooking lesson, easy to understand with an interpreter. Four of us helped prepare, cook and eat a 4 course Tuscan meal. I would recommend this cooking class.

I took this cooking class while traveling alone in Italy. I love to cook and what better way to meet other people. Chef Louisa was wonderful, funny and very supportive of our efforts as was her assistant Cynzia. We cooked an authentic Tuscan meal from antipasti to dolce. It was amazing and delicious. I would definitely recommend this to others. Thank you!

Kelly and I thoroughly this class with 4 others! We spent 5 hours with Lella, her assistant, and interpreter, all who love cooking. It was fun and comfortable as Lella led us through the steps to make a gourmet meal. We learned so much! It was exciting to be a part of this and to bring back the recipes we had made. We all got to help in making the parts of the meal and then enjoyed the meal with each other and Lella's special wine! What a great memory!! Lella is a treasure.

Our chef, Simone, was very friendly and helpful. The food we made was quite simple, but delicious. The only problem was that the start time was not changed when daylight saving commenced, and hence it was dark as we were driven along the Chianti trail about 20 minutes out of Siena. We missed the spectular scenery. Otherwise, a great experience.
