This was a great activity. Our Chef was personable, knowledgeable and spoke English very well. It was a hands-activity and the food was delicious. Would absolutely recommend.

We joined Chef at 9:30 for the market tour in Lucca. He's lively, charming and full of wonderful stories and information about Tuscan cooking. Our family of 7 included my 81 yr old mother, myself and my husband as well as our 20 - 25 year old kids. Everyone loved the experience. We shopped for ingredients alongside the locals, carried our purchases back through the winding ancient streets otour.more

We participated in 3 classes during our stay and this one was by far our favorite! Giuseppe started our class with a walk around town to pick up fresh supplies needed for the day ahead. We then went to his villa which is absolutely AMAZING inside and prepared our meals. Giuseppe had a lot of patience with us and everything we cooked was amazing! I would definitely recommend this class to evertour.more

What a fun experience. Chef Giuseppe is a very warm and charming host. He took our group of 8 from three different continents on a tour of his favorite markets and bakeries and then to his beautiful home where we all enjoyed pitching in on the prep work while sampling local wines. We learned a lot about the local olive oils and cheeses as well as how to master the art of cooking risotto whitour.more

This was the highlight of our 10 days in Italy! I would highly recommend this class to everyone!! Chef Giuseppe is such a charismatic and professional chef, with wonderful stories and good instruction on cooking. The class was very hands on, so we felt like we truly made the meal, and the wine we enjoyed was phenomenal. The small class of 8 was perfect, so we could all chat and participate, andtour.more
