Hi from Cecilia!

At the top end of a road just outside the historic center of Florence, across from the park of the Stibbert Museum, our Cesarina opens the doors to her home from with a splendid view of the city. “Cooking amuses me and always puts me in a good mood. I’m constantly on the lookout for the perfect recipe, and when I find it I guard it as though it was a treasure chest!”. Cecilia’s is a simple, but unquestionably tasty cuisine: “I like inviting friends home, without any formalities, offering them the best I can”.

Cecilia was absolutely amazing! Our adult family had a fantastic time cooking with Cecilia. She was so accommodating to us- one of us didn’t eat eggs! We laughed, learned, and enjoyed! Highly recommended!

Cooking and dining with Cecelia was the highlight of our family’s trip to Italy. To be invited into her kitchen and learn to make ravioli and tiramisu was a treat. Cecelia is a warm and welcoming host and teacher and to enjoy our own handiwork over a bottle of Chianti while overlooking Florence was unforgettable. This is a perfect way to spend a night in Italy.

Our evening with Cecelia was a highlight of our trip. To be invited into her kitchen and learn how to successfully make the most wonderful ravioli and tiramisu was so special. And then to enjoy our meal with a nice Chianti in her dining room overlooking Florence made for an unforgettable evening. Cecelia is an absolute gem and we will always treasure this family experience.

Cecilia was the sweetest host! How fabulous she gets to have people come to her home to learn how to make the best egg pasta. The views from her window were amazing too. I loved learning all the secrets to making the best pasta.
