Taking an authentic cooking class with Marcella is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. We arrived to a warm welcome and overview of the customized 3 course menu we previously selected for our cooking experience. Marcella was engaging, gracious and fun while ensuring our hands on experience with all preparations and techniques. Once our feast was ready, we sat... More

Our personal cooking class with Marcella was the highlight of our 18 day trip! She was incredible! To start, we were able to create a fully customized menu, which is so unique when it comes to a cooking school. With dietary restrictions and picky eaters, being able to create our own menu was a huge hit. We made bruschetta, pizza,... More

While my daughter already rated this school, I felt the need to do the same from a different perspective. Unlike my daughter and son-in-law, I have been married and cooking for many many years, and I too learned a lot from Marcella! She is an enthusiastic and fun instructor. She uses fresh and creative ingredients and the results were DELICIOUS!... More

This is a must do when in Florence! I did the cooking class with my husband and my mother as special day away from sight seeing. Marcella was so friendly and accommodating when choosing our menu for the class before arriving in Italy. All of the ingredients are so fresh just like every where in Italy. Dishes that we thought...

Great 1-on-1 experience in the kitchen with a master chef. Marcella was a great teacher and together we made a wonderful meal. I would recommend this class to serious foodies who are wanting to really dive into the Italian cuisine.

Marcella was outstanding! My wife and I took a private pasta class during our visit to Italy. Her hands on teaching method had us making pasta, gnocchi, meat gravy for tagliatelle and a lemon cake soaked with some lemoncello- then we enjoyed eating all we had prepared with Marcella and her boyfriend where we enjoyed some great vino and talked...

Marcella was just outstanding. The communication with our group prior to the class was prompt and thorough. She allowed us to pack in a TON of things in our 3-hour class, which stretched to almost 4 hours. Our group enjoyed learning from Marcella. She is an expert in her field and she cares about what she is doing. The class... More

Our family of three really enjoyed our private 3-hour class with Marcella. We learned so much, made delicious food, and are now able to successfully replicate the results at home. What really sets this class apart from others is the ability to customize the menu to your personal taste. (The spinach and ricotta ravioli was quite possibly the best food... More

It was a great experience. We were five lads, had the class to ourselves. The chef didn't overload us with info and went at a good pace. He didn't mind when our attention drifted off and no need to say the Pizza and Gelato were amazing. Highly recommend it
