We were so impressed with this class! We learned how to make Limoncello - and then enjoyed a wonderful dessert made with it. We loved the kitchen and our teachers. Wish we had taken more classes we just didn't have time. :(More

Just to clarify, I'm looking for a half day course for myself, my wife and two daughters (ages 15 and 7). In Genoa. Something on the basics e.g. good tomato sauce. A classic seafood dish also. Thanks.
