Loved this cooking class run by Fulvio. Definitely a highlight of our trip. We made authentic home style Tuscan food that was much easier than I expected & absolutely delicious. The house is set in a traditional Tuscan location with amazing views. Perfect!

The cooking lesson was so much fun and informative! Fulvio was a great teacher and host. We totally over indulged in eating everything we made, and Fulvio served us local Tuscan wines to have with every course. Thank you so much for the recipe book also, Ive already made the pici and panzanella again! I'll definitely be back to go... More

We had a wonderful time in the authentic home cooking class. Everything we made was delicious and we left full and content. We truly felt like we just cooked and ate with an old family friend! Loved

This cooking class was super amazing thanks to Katia's kindness and knowledge. The food was super good and we got new information and recipes that we never was aware of. She surprised us with every dish and was very informative. It was simple but beautiful. Katia also gave us a cooking book so it was really nice. The most beautiful... More

I took a "girls" trip to Italy with my Mom and three sisters. We had such an amazing time. Katia was friendly and we had so much fun with her. We prepared bruschetta, panzanella, two types of pasta, and saltimbocca. Everything was delicious! At the end of the meal, we sat outside to drink our coffee. The view was breathtaking.... More

Very poor menu, no proper facilities in the kitchen for a cooking class. Only one cooker. Most of the cooking is done only by one participant or by the instructor. Big disappointment.

Dear Ronit, I'm really sorry that you didn't enjoy the cooking class and we weren't what you were looking for. We open our house to the people that would like to know how we really cook in italian family everyday and for special occasion. You prepared 8 recipes and if you would like to make more, as you know, we... More

My husband and I had a great time cooking simple, easy to prepare, and delicious Tuscan recipes with Katia and six other guests. We moved between the casual dining room and kitchen making bruschetta, panzanella, homemade pasta, two sauces, and my favorite, saltimbocca. I truly felt like family. This was not in some test kitchen. It was in their home... More

This cooking class was one of the highlights of our trip in Tuscany! Hosted at the Il Vicario B&B, and led by the amazingly warm and welcoming Katia, we couldn’t have imagined a better introduction to authentic Tuscan cooking. Surrounded by aromatic rosemary bushes, we were greeted by Katia in the sunny courtyard (what a view!), and this idyllic setting... More

Myself, my husband and our 18 year old twin daughters had a really lovely time with Katia. We were taught how to make pasta and many other Tuscan dishes. Katia is very patient and set the level perfectly for us. I thoroughly recommend this experience. Prior to our class Katia also organised for us to go truffle hunting with Francisco,... More
