Incredible, to say the very least my friends. Antonella led us on a magical tour of making our own homemade pasta (2 types) and marvelous Tiramiso. In a beautiful country kitchen she gently instructed us as we made the dough and prepared the desert filling. It was all hands on for Connie and I. Don't fret, she is so kind and generous. There are no mistakes in her kitchen it's all in fun and feast. She also made bruschetta and focaccia all with fresh ingredients many pulled directly from her garden, 'a la fois'. As all the ingredients began to emerge together we moved to a charming outside table covered with views of the raw country side. Some wine and we began our gourmet feast. We were very fortunate to enjoy the meal with both Antonella and her husband both wonderful hosts. We shared stories and laughed heartly. But in the end we teared up as we didn't want the evening to end. Remarkable, a must do experience. Many thanks Chef Antonella!

Move over Uffizi, Florence has a new top attraction, and her name is Antonella! My 2 children, my wife and I travelled to Florence to visit our daughter who was studying abroad there for the semester. After a week of touring and sightseeing, we did a private cooking class with Antonella. Her hospitality, professionalism, kindness and skill set were beyond expectation! We made a 4 course meal, and all participated fully in the prep. The menu was basic-focaccia and bruschetta, home made pasta (we each made a batch from scratch) with a white meat ragu, and tiramisu. Most ingredients came from her garden. Everything was fresh and DELICIOUS. Antonella served a complimentary wine with each course. All 5 of us decided that our time with Antonella was a highlight of the trip. We would all do this again in a heartbeat! This class would be suitable for younger kids as well.

When planning our trip, we told the travel agent we wanted the essence of Italy. Antonella gave us that with her wonderful cooking class. She welcomed us into her home and taught us how to make a beautiful meal. we visited, we laughed, we ate. It was the best experience of all during our trip. Thank you Antonella you are truly a gift.

My wife and I’s cooking class with Antonella was the brightest spot of our vacation to Italy! Not only did we make delicious pasta and tiramisu, we also made memories for a lifetime by sharing a meal with her and her husband in the Tuscan hills. This is an authentic Florentine experience! She is an excellent teacher, wonderful chef, and kind host. We highly recommend this class. We are excited to make these recipes for our family!

Our cooking experience with Antonella was a definite highlight of our time in Italy. She welcomed us into her home like we were family. She shared her knowledge and techniques with us in an easy to understand manner and was gracious enough to send all the recipes we made plus many more home with us via email. I can’t wait to return to the Florence area someday and hopefully reconnect. Thanks for everything Antonella!

Cesarina from 2018Location: Florence    Languages: Italian and English
Antonella is a Florentine born and bred who (professionally and for fun) loves cooking, using only seasonal ingredients which she usually buys from local farmers. Antonella loves traditional, ethnic and fusion cuisines; she likes sharing experiences and getting to know new people whom she hosts in a stunning location, on the Florentine hills. Here, only a couple miles from the historic center of Florence, in the tranquility of the Tuscan hills, this Cesarina welcomes us. Her house is an ex-monastery from 1200 a.c. which throughout the years was turned into a barn, then a painter’s studio, and now an artist’s home, where we can savor the flavors of Tuscan cuisine.
