Our 'Farm to Fork' cooking lesson in Tuscany was the real highlight of a recent family holiday to Italy that included so many highlights. Our cooking instructor, Veronica, was outstanding and presented a fantastic half-day class for my foodie wife, myself and our daughters (aged 15 and 12). We met Veronica in the village of Impruneta and followed her to... More

Veronica was a perfect hostess and teacher. We felt like we were given the secret to Italian cooking, eating and living. That was one of our goals; to spend time with true Italians, in their home and eat authentic Italian food. This was much more than we hoped for. We felt like we had made a lifetime friend with Veronica.... More

From the start my contacts with Laura were always swift and helpful making me feel like I was in good hands thousands of miles away. Our Farm to Fork Family Cooking Class was one of the highlights of our family of five (18, 16 and 12) trip to Italy. La Quercia, the villa where our instructor Veronica lived in Impruneta... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful time cooking with Veronica. She welcomed us and made us feel at home. We made the most delicious, light Gnocchi with a tomato sauce along with side dishes and tiramisu. She had a warm lemon cake waiting for us when we arrived. Veronica was a wealth on knowledge and a beautiful person. After... More

We so enjoyed our experience of cooking in Italy. Our hostess and instructor was so knowledgeable and had such a delightful way of teaching. The setting was beautiful and the cooking and final results could not have been more perfect.

I contacted Ciao Laura just a few days before leaving for our Italy trip. Her response was nearly immediate, and she coordinated our pasta cooking class with Lucia in Sorrento! We were picked up at our hotel and driven to Lucia's place, Alexia House. All 4 of us in our party had a fantastic time, and we were so charmed... More

We had a great time with Veronica cooking pizza and focaccia at her cooking studio in Tuscany. Ciao Laura arranged for Veronica to pick us up and drop us off in Florence, so we didn't have to arrange our own transportation (we wanted to avoid driving in Italy). Veronica is very passionate about cooking and shares her enthusiasm with her... More
