Cooking Class in Tuscany

“From start to finish this was a wonderful day and highlight of our trip. I had the honor to spend my 50th birthday in Paola and Simonetta’s lovely Tuscan home learning wonderful Italian recipes and making new friends with the other participants for the day.

We started in a lovely room just for our cooking class, made several dishes, enjoyed Paola’s dry humor and warmth, and engaged in great wine, cooking, and conversation.

Following this part of the experience we brought the food into their kitchen and enjoyed a wonderful filling meal with their family. We took lots of pictures to commemorate this memory that we will never forget!

Plenty of great cooking knowledge, laughter, food and wine! It is worth the drive, the cost, and your time to enjoy a half day with these lovely sisters in their special home!”
