Wonderful and Authenticate Italian Experience

This cooking class was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Not only did we learn how to make pasta, but we had a delightful Italian feast with our hosts. Antonietta and her crew were a sheer delight and we felt like family by the time we left her home four and half hours later. I am recommending this experience to all my friends and hope to go back for another class in the years ahead.
Fabulous cooking experience
, Oct 2019
This cooking experience was one of the highlights of our trip. It was great to actually cook in the host (Antonietta)'s home in a traditional atmosphere where we learnt to make pasta by hand under her careful guidance and then sit down to a 3 course meal with wine which included the pasta we had made. There were 9 of us and it really felt like we were having a lunch with friends.
Memories made to last a lifetime

This particular evening served to be our most favorable during the two week trip to Italy. The location is fantastic. The hospitality is genuine and we just couldn’t rave enough about this experience. If we could rate it higher than a “5”, it would be a solid “10”. Don’t miss out!

We were hosted by Antonieta and Pietro. They were an absolute joy. So welcoming. Our translator Luchresia was so nice also. We did our cooking class and then had a wonderful meal. We truly felt like we were one of the family. I would definately recommend this experience.

This was a fun filled evening. Antoniette is a supurb cook. The evening was great fun, and we felt like we have always known them. Can't wait to try making the pasta ourselves. This was a highlight of our trip.

We visited Antionetta and her husband during our honeymoon in July. This was without a doubt the highlight of the whole trip. It was only my wife and I and we felt so welcome and comfortable with Antionetta and her husband. We made fresh pasta and helped pick fresh vegetables in their own garden. The voucher claims the whole experience is about 3 hours but we stayed and chatted to Antionetta and her husband for about 5 hours. We enjoyed it so much that we are looking at going back with our parents. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to feel like a typical Italian for a night and wants to try some genuine local cuisine that you help make yourself. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

This class was a highlight on my recent trip. I have always wanted to take a cooking class in Italy and this was just perfect. Antoinetta was the best teacher and hostess possible. We learned how to make several Italian dishes just the way her mother taught her. I especially enjoyed that fact that we were learning in her home and then sat down to eat a 5 course Italian dinner with her. The cost of this class is a bargain and the experience was amazing.
