What amazing experiences. The best moment of our holiday. It was a very good moment with Barbara and her husband's Claudio. We learnt how to cook ravioli (pumpkin because of Halloween :D), traditional cuttlefish and tiramisu. Barbara gave us lot of advances and tricks. We finish to eat togethers at them home. The result was delicious!!! For sure we will redo at home. Thank you again. And for people who are reading us, don't hesitate to book! Ciao ciao :D

The class was in the cooks home, it felt very personal and authentic. The host was great it was an enjoyable afternoon. Whilst I would recommend the course, it was expensive for what was included. The dishes we cooked (mussels, fresh pasta, tirimasu) were very tasty, but I was a little disappointed that they were not as advanced as the ‘sample dishes’ suggested in the description

Super expérience avec Irene ! Très chaleureuse, elle nous a accueillis chez elle et a su nous faire partager sa passion pour la cuisine italienne. Au menu : sardines frites, raviolis épinards-ricotta et tiramisu, le tout fait main de A à Z et en dégustant des verres de prosecco. Nous avons ensuite donné ensemble et Irene nous a conseillé quelques adresses locales, dont un petit producteur de vin qui est une pépite. A faire absolument !

We made dinner with Anna, and it was a lovely experience. She was super friendly, accommodating, a great teacher and the food was delish. A lovely evening cooking and eating on her beautiful terrace.

We loved meeting Barbara and Claudio. We were welcomed into their home and made to feel like special guests from the off. Barbara is a talented chef who shared her expertise generously and we’d repeat the experience and recommend it to friends
