Our family enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with Katia. She was warm, engaging and welcoming. She made us feel like family. The recipes we prepared were authentic, simple and delicious. We will undoubtedly prepare them again once we return home. This was simply a great experience.

An experience we will never forget, Katia is such a kind and knowledgeable host. The history she provides behind the food you prepare gives this experience another level. Absolutely must do if you're in the area.

You'll have to contact them directly for availability. I wouldn't know. As far as cost we paid 130 euros each for the advanced class with truffle hunting - well worth it!
