Hi from Barbara!

Barbara welcomes us in Montepulciano Station, a historic village nestled on the hills in the province of Siena, near the characteristic medieval village is surrounded by three circular walls and is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the area. If you see it for yourself, you'll soon understand why: the old town sprawls over a steep hill, adorned with stunning towers and steeples, while its square opens onto the breathtaking panorama of the Tuscan countryside. Our Cesarina’s country house encapsulates this charming atmosphere. Her beautiful wine cellar is home to dozens of aging bottles of local wine, and the rest of the apartment is warm and welcoming. It is here that Barbara serves us her local specialties; simple, but with sterling character and unforgettable taste.

The cooking class with Barbara far exceeded my expectations. I was looking for a family friendly experience since I had three toddlers. From the beginning, Barbara was so warm and welcoming. She was able to seamlessly teach 4 adults and 3 toddlers while also engaging us in conversation, describing her experiences in cooking and lending extra time with the kids. She clearly has tons of knowledge regarding culinary skills and was able to teach us so many little facts and tricks. I will be recommending her to all of my friends who visit the area.

We had so much fun learning and cooking with Barbara. Her home was lovely and the pasta and tiramisu was fun to make and delicious to eat.

We loved our cooking class with Barbara! She had a beautiful home and taught us how to make two different pastas and tiramisu, which were all delicious. We learned a lot and really enjoyed spending time with her during the class. Definitely was one of the highlights of our trip. We highly recommend that other people book this class with her!
