Amazing dinner!
Oct 2021 • Friends
We had a wonderful time cooking with the Chef! We had a small but very fun group. My mother and I both learned how to make pasta from scratch. It’s amazing what you can do with flour and an egg. The finished product was delicious as was the wine with dinner. I highly recommend and would do again in a heartbeat.

Fabulous experience! Wonderful cooking class!
My wife and I took this cooking class with Chief Vary while in Florence. It was one of the biggest highlights of our trip.

Obviously there are many beautiful things to see in Florence, but this is a special experience as you are able to work with a local person and ask questions about local traditions and food. If you enjoy cooking and want to learn about traditional Italian cuisine, this is for you. My wife was thrilled with the cooking class for that reason. I am not a cook but Vary makes beginners or experienced cooks all feel at home.

We made ravioli, linguine and gnocchi during the class. Everyone has a hands on experience with the pasta making and cooking. There is a lot more information for those that want to try this at home, so you can take these tips home and try yourself.

The best part of course is eating what was made and it was all delicious. There were 4 couples and we all were able to sit together with the food and some wine and enjoy a meal.

The chief Vary cannot be forgotten! Vary is very personable and fun to work with. She is really what makes this class so enjoyable from start to finish. I highly recommend to fit this in your schedule. You won’t be disappointed!

Best class!
Aug 2021
Fantastic! I came to Florence with these goals: (1) spend time with my sisters; (2) see beautiful things; (3) eat amazing food. This class met them all! A short walk from Santa Croce where we stayed, the work space was immaculate. Chef Vary covered food safety, knife handling, a bit of food history and so much more. The class was totally hands-on and the meal we prepared was perfect. I left with a smile on my face having learned more about cooking and with confidence that I could replicate the meal when I returned home.

Pasta, wine, lovely people; great way to spend a few hours!
Feb 2020
This was to be the highlight of our Florence trip, and it did not disappoint! It was a small group, my husband and two lovely ladies from Minnesota. Chef Vary made us feel extremely comfortable, reminding us that 'its just pasta,' if we made an error, or had to recheck instructions.

We made three different pastas and sauces. Chef Vary shared the tasks equally between us, explaining everything as she went; she's extremely well organised and slick. We then adjourned to the wine tasting, where we met her husband. What a lovely couple and a delightful store with lots of very interesting items to browse.

Next we rolled our pasta, and began the cooking process. It was heaps of fun, and although I made a couple of technical errors, that was great, because when I reproduced the pasta at home yesterday, I could easily recall the error. Better to make the mistake under Chef Vary's watchful eyes.

Finally, we got time to sit down, eat and drink. The food, and the wine were delectable! The pasta melted in our mouths, the sauces were simple, but bursting with flavour. The conversation equally as enjoyable, and as we were travelling alone it was nice to socialise, which is another reason I chose this activity.

As I have already mentioned, I made pasta at home yesterday and my children and two pasta addict grandsons can't wait for me to give them a pasta making lesson.
Seriously, if you are even considering this - book now - you won't regret it!

Highlight of our trip!
We had the best time at Chef Vary’s class. Our group consisted of great chefs and people who had never cooked and we all loved it and learned a lot! The food was the best pasta we had in Florence (and we had a LOT of pasta in Florence). We will definitely be returning!

The highlight of our holiday!
A fantastic course and excellent value for money. Chef Vary was organised, hospitable, very knowledgeable and generously shared many ‘trade secrets’. We prepared Gnocchi, tagliatelle and ravioli and had enormous fun. The course is a good level of challenge yet not stressful and the Chef adapted the various tasks to suit individuals competencies. Eating dinner with a complimentary glass of excellent wine in the immaculately clean and warmly decorated dining room was ‘the icing on the cake’. Highly recommended.

Small-Group Pasta Class
Dec 2019 • Friends
This was such an amazing experience. My friend and I attended the class with one other couple. The couple who runs this class is extremely hospitable and really know how to give you a great time. The food we made was absolutely delicious. This was my first experience with a cooking class and it could not have gone any better. I enjoyed the intimacy of the small group.

THE Most Fun Experience We Had In Florence
Dec 2019
This pasta making class was the gem in our trip to Florence. Chef Vary not only taught us how to make 3 kinds of pasta (ravioli, gnocchi, and spaghetti in our case), she did so with humour, and in a way that was easy to understand for non-chef folks like ourselves. Before we knew it, we had made some truly delicious dishes.

Thank you Chef for the great experience as well as the knowledge that making fresh pasta can be done easily and with local ingredients. And a special thank you for accommodating our last-minute scheduling. We had booked a wine tour for the day (elsewhere), but that tour ended up being cancelled. Chef Vary was kind enough to take us in on short notice, and upon hearing about our previous wine tour misfortune, Chef's husband sampled with us some of their wines (they were all amazing, but the pepper-infused was the favorite).

This whole experience turned what had been a particularly frustrating day into our MOST memorable evening in Italy.

If you have the opportunity, please take a class with Chef Vary, you will not regret it!

Beautiful experience!!
Nov 2019
Chef Vary and her husband were great host! We were not the easiest folks to accommodate, but yet they did. It was a wonderful cap to an amazing trip. We had never made fresh pasta before and we got experience with three different types. We can't wait to try them at home! All the ingredients were fresh, in season and local, which I loved! The herbs and vegetables were amazing! The place is also very lovely, it had a sophisticated yet homey feel! We felt right at home and really enjoyed our time! We would do it again in a heartbeat! This is a must do!!
