Shared Experience

In a shared experience, other guests may be added, up to the maximum number of people that the host can accommodate. Therefore you may have the opportunity to share your passion for good food and cooking with other people from all over the world!

Your experience
  • Tuscan focaccia and ficattole (sweet or savory fried pasta)
  • Tagliatelle with white ragù and pecorino cream
  • Tiramisù with coffee

I look forward to a sunset aperitif. A glass of prosecco, the setting of the sun and the view of a picturesque Romanesque parish church are the perfect combination to recharge your energy. After a short walk among the olive trees, we will head to my home, where we will begin the baking class to create our finger foods. We will prepare dough for Tuscan ficattole, a delicious specialty fried in oil, to be enjoyed with a selection of Tuscan cured meats and cheeses. There will be no shortage of seasoned focaccia. Next, we will dive into a cooking class dedicated to tagliatelle and tiramisu. By the way, make sure your voice is in good shape, because in addition to cooking, I also love ... singing!

What a fun evening this was. After the main course, we took a walk through the olive orchards with Glesch (?) the dog In tow. Then we came back for dessert. Google Translate saved the day. Much good food, laughter and dancing was involved. Bina and her husband could not have been more gracious and welcoming. It was so much fun, not only to eat such scrumptious food, but also to watch them prepare it. We would not hesitate for a moment to do this again. Our unique experience was one of the highlights of our amazing trip this year. One of us is vegetarian, and Bina made sure to create delicious veggie options. Gracie mielle!!!

Our evening with Bina and her husband Massimo was nothing short of amazing. We had a truly authentic Italian experience full of fun, laughter, music, singing and of course fabulous food. We got to participate in the making of every part of the meal from scratch - from the pizzas to the pasta to the tiramisu! We were a family of five and everyone loved the experience! Cooking with Bina is a must. Word of advice - bring your appetite! ;)

Allora! We were personally met by Lesh, Bina's Head of Security. Once he cleared us through, Bina and her husband and co-culinary artist Massimo welcomed us to Gastronomy Italiano Lezione Uno. All Things Foccacia was already in progress; the wine started flowing, as did Italian music. One can only focus properly when Andrea Bocelli is singing in the background, raising our spirits as well as causing dancing to break out as we created a multitude of pizzas, spinach ravioli, fettucine and tiramisu. Bina's cucinare skills are only surpassed by her singing and dancing. One must be well rested prior to this Lezione; Bina and Massimo are wonderful; and Lesh will help relieve you of well as any formaggio....

We booked this course with Bina and Massimo. No review can make them justice. By far, one of our best moments ever! Bina and Massimo presented us with godlike food and such a great spirit. We started with 2 types of pizza, one with sausage and other with mozarella and ham. 10/5 * ! We then tried the ficattola filled with sundried tomatoes, real ricotta, and mortadella and salami. 15/5* ! Bina and Massimo made sure we wouldn’t leave hungry, so they kept on bringing more food. So, the pasta dish: pici al ragu toscano. 20/5* ! By then, we thought it was over. But Bina thought differently. So, she brought us the best pork loin we ever had. 30/5* ! At this stage, we remembered the tiramisu we made before starting the feast. But, Bina and Massimo thought a bit of sorbetto al limone needed to come before. 40/5* ! As a side to the sorbetto she presented us with homemade limoncello. 50/5* ! We did finish eventually. We ended with a walk around the fields, because we had a lot of food. Bina and Massimo do take really good care of you. Ah! With so much food we almost forget to mention the wine. White, Red, they will give you a better wine than you can ever expect. 100/5* ! We are hugely grateful for the time and the moments we had with both of them. One piece of advice: if Bina says she is only having the tiramisu, brace yourselves for what is to come. And don’t say no to the walk in the end. Love, Miguel and Steph ***
