Thank you Lucia and Francesca. Your cooking was great. I learned a lot from you that I will take back to the US.

This experience was a highlight of our month stay in Cortona. The setting, hosts and food were just excellent. Getting to cook and dine in a home from the Middle Ages - that’s a memory! Thank you thank you Lucia and your sister!

Highlight of our Italy Vacation. If you are looking for a cooking class or even just an activity to do one day, book this one! The hosts were amazing, the location was stunning with an indoor/outdoor kitchen and view of a castle. We made four extraordinary meals, drank wine and lemoncello- it was an amazing day, we truly felt like we made new friends. Cannot recommend this experience enough. Our group of 4 all agreed we would love to return for countless more cooking classes with Lucia and her sister!

These ladies rock! We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class. The hints and tips were so helpful, ingredients so fresh and the food so very delicious. If you are looking for an authentic Italian cooking class where you will get great food, patient and awesome instructors and maybe a few new ideas for your own cooking repertoire this is the class to take. One of the best meals we had while travelling in Italy. Oh and Lucia’s limoncello made with tangerines is THE best we tasted! Thank you Lucia and Francesca- all the best :)

Took this cooking class with my mother and sister - we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and had a wonderful meal below a castle in the countryside of Castiglion Fiorentino - so much food that we took home leftovers for dinner. I am a vegetarian and they adjusted the menu for us to accommodate. Best tiramisu we had in Italy!
