Incredible!
Sep 2021 • Couples
My husband and I had such an incredible time on this tour! It was one of our favorites from our honeymoon. Olivia was amazing, she took us through the market and showed us and explained to us from top to bottom the market, what is in the market, and which produce we were going to get to make our delicious lunch. We were able to sample a few items which was delicious and had enough time that if we wanted to grab something for ourselves we could! Then we were bused to a BEAUTIFUL Tuscan farmhouse where we met Carmela who was incredible. Olivia and Carmela had such a beautiful friendship and their conversation/them playing off of each other is what truly made the cooking class fun, friendly, and exciting. We were able to interact/cook every step of the way and they were so encouraging for everyone to participate. Learning different ways to make pasta, cooking ragu sauce, and making tiramisu…my goodness I could go on and on! It was truly an incredible experience and we would recommend to anyone wanting a fun, interactive, delicious day!

Great and fun cooking class at a beautiful location.
Oct 2021 • Couples
Great cooking class at a beautiful location! Starting with going to the local market with our guide Gloria was very nice, getting introduced to the good ingredients and seeing how all the ingredients for the cooking class were bought. The chef Carmela is very enthoustiac and happy making it a fun experience to remember. It was a good mix with starting making bruscetta first and some things that need to cook longer. While waiting for things to be cooked we enjoyed the first bruscetta with wine. Then we made our very own pasta ourselves. The self made pasta, potatoes, ham and tiramisu and were super tasty. It's also special that the olive oil we used is from their own garden.

The best cooking class!
Oct 2021
Gloria and Carmella were the very best! We learned so much, we danced, we laughed, and we ate. It was so amazing. The class is in a fairytale setting at a farm high above the city. They views only added to the magical day. Cannot recommend enough. Go!

Awesome day - a must do!
Sep 2021
This was amazing. I am not a huge review writer, so you have to know this was great. Carmella and Martina (not Martini) were so much fun. They really got the group engaged with the cooking and we learned some new techniques. The location was beautiful, our pasta was great. It was such a great start to our Italian vacation. It is a must if you are looking for a wonderful day of food, wine and meeting new people.

A must do when in Florence.
Sep 2021
I would leave a 10 if possible. The day is full of great adventure, cooking, and loads of fun. I offer this opportunity to attend this to all my clients. Martina and Carmilla are so much fun and you will be amazed at how much you will learn.

Delicious food & Endless Fun!
Sep 2021
This tour was absolutely spectacular!! Lavi and Carmela made us feel so comfortable and excited to cook regardless of what skill level of cooking you are at. Not only was the food delicious, but the experience of getting to make the food yourself, in good company, on a Tuscan Farm with beautiful views made this tour absolutely unforgettable. This tour was full of fun times, beautiful views, delicious food, and wonderful memories. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone considering it!!!
