Our cooking experience with Katia was sensational, we felt welcomed into her warm & inviting kitchen. We learnt the traditional ways to make pasta dishes and Tiramisu. This experience was one of the highlights of our Italian holiday.

We signed up for a beginner cooking class. Fulvio was a great teacher! He was patient, knowledgeable and a very gracious host. Katia was extremely helpful and engaging. This cooking class is a MUST if you are planning a trip to the Tuscany area.
