My sister & I enjoyed the market tour & cooking class with Sara. It was a wonderful experience. Sara is generous, attentive, flexible, knows a lot and an amazing chef. We loved the tour, the lesson & the food.
Such an amazing experience! Barbara was so great and we learned so much about making pasta! A highlight of our stay!
Excellent class, Barbara was so nice, so informative, so sweet! Just a fabulous class. Loved her little home!
Excellent! Barbara was so nice, personable, easy and interesting.
Lucrezia took us on a beautiful tour through her home of Poggiardo. Each place she took us - the mill, the foccaceria, the football club for a delicious frisa, and finally the pasticceria for coffee and pastries - felt like we were visiting an old friend. The food was wonderful and the company was even better. Thank you Lucrezia for a beautiful day - we'll see you again!
What a marvelous experience with Patrizia and Luca and one that we would highly recommend. From the switchback ride going higher and higher above the lake to the closing hugs after hours of fun and merriment, all four in our party raved about the hosts, the food and wine to making fresh pasta/tiramisu, to the incredible views for dinner outside. We laughed, we learned, and we made new friends. We would have them in our homes and return the hospitality we were shown from this beautiful couple who love hosting and sharing their knowledge of this part of the world. A genuine couple with whom we had a genuinely great experience. And leftovers!
We spent a wonderful afternoon & evening with Anna & her daughter Cassandra making Pici pasta, a tomato & garlic sauce. Two different antipasto dishes & a baked custard dessert. All traditional Tuscan dishes, we not only learnt how to make them we also learnt the history of the recipes which was fantastic. We were then taken on a tour of the their town, San Quitico d’ Orcia & again we learnt some of the towns history. Then back to enjoy the meal with the family. It really was a highlight of our Tuscan stay. If you are lucky enough to have Anna as your host you will not be disappointed. Thank you Anna & family for a wonderful day
My parents, aunts, uncle, and I spent a wonderful Sunday with Catia cooking, chatting, laughing, and of course enjoying a (few) glasses of wine! We even were introduced to her family - who were all just as lovely as she is! Catia went above and beyond to welcome us into her home and introduce us to traditional Venetian culture and cuisine - welcoming us with a beautiful serving of Cicchetti that we enjoyed outside on her patio before we moved into the kitchen to begin preparing Bigoli and Tiramisu. The entire experience was very hands on and immersive. Catia also invited us to visit her garden and pick a few items to taste right off the vine. I could write paragraphs about how wonderful our experience with Catia was - I highly recommend taking the opportunity to cook with her!! Thanks a MILLION, Catia - I hope our paths cross again in the future!
