Truly a wonderful day spent with Cristina! We learned so much from the warmth of her kitchen and are forever grateful for a very unique and memorable experience while visiting Florence. Grazie Mille!

It was truly a magical time, and getting to learn and cook was amazing.

Christina was amazing. She met us at market and we were in and out and up to her house to cook a delicious feast of our choosing (with her help). She has a beautiful home and was very welcoming. We had an amazing time learning and eating the meal. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. I would do this again every time I’m in Florence. 12/10.

Cristina was a wonderful host and she went out of her way to pick my daughter & I up from downtown Florence, which was totally unexpected but most appreciated. We loved our morning with her in her beautiful home, chatting away and learning about pasta making. We both thoroughly enjoyed her company.

We spent an incredible day with Maria Cristina cooking pasta in her beautiful home. She's a delight. The food was delicious. And the property is spectacular. A perfect day.

Maria Cristina
Cesarina from 2022Location: Florence    Languages: Italian and English
I have always loved cooking. I learned from my mother that she was a perfect cook and taught me to recognize the good taste of food, its genuineness and the tradition of typical dishes that are handed down from mother to daughter. Hospitality in mine. land and in my family has always been a strong point: a place at the table is always added with great joy in offering good food to guests. I live in Florence because I moved to study, so I integrated Tuscan cuisine with that of my land and I must say that it was a beautiful enrichment of flavors and recipes .
