Hi from Francesca!

Amo tornare alle origini, alla vecchia Firenze Rinascimentale e fare un viaggio nel passato con i miei ospiti per poter riprodurre le vecchie ricette Fiorentine: dalla pasta fatta in casa realizzata totalmente a mano, come anche i sughi e i dolci, utilizzando solo prodotti biologici.

Francesca’s cooking class was better than we could have imagined! We signed up for our honeymoon, which easily became one of our favorite days. Francesca is so warm and welcoming as she invited us into her home. She had the eggs, flour and work stations ready and waiting for us. We made two types of pastas and tiramisu. Was absolutely delicious and created the best memories. Beyond happy to bring home our newly learned knowledge of pasta making. Highly recommend Francesca, she will make the evening perfect!

Great experience!! This was a private in home lesson. Francesca was warm and inviting, really sweet and patient. My wife is vegan so Francesca guided us in making panzanela (spelling?), potato gnocchi with a fresh tomato sauce & a simple dessert which I cannot pronounce. I can't wait to attempt to re-create the recipes at home. I would definitely recommend her cooking class/lesson to anyone interested. Grazie mille Francesca!!

I can't imagine a pasta making experience better than the one we had with Francesca this December. My wife and I had booked a class, which ended up being a private lesson (hooray for the slow season!) We met in her beautiful apartment, which wasn’t far from the Florence city centre. She had cutting boards, flour and eggs already laid out for us when we arrived; and we jumped right in to making a homemade tomato sauce, followed by Tiramasu. While the Tiramasu was cooling we moved on to making home made pasta dough and fillings. Sometime before we started the fillings, Francesca heard that we loved lemon, and did a quick change up of the planned recipe so that we could have a lemon-filled ravioli instead of spinach. She had us include one of her home-made spice mixes and some pink pepper, which turned out to be absolutely delicious. When it was time for dessert, I honestly I didn’t expect to like the Tiramasu. I’ve had a few before that I thought were dry. But the one we made with Francesca’s help was one I’d be happy with if I’d ordered it in a nice restaurant. It was perfect. We left with plans to try to replicate it at home for some friends. 

If you’re in Florence and looking to cook a delicious Italian meal, you should absolutely book with Francesca!

Francesca was amazing! She was so welcoming and we learned exactly what the cooking class was going to teach us. We had a great time and laughed and enjoyed the meal! One of our favorite events we did while in Florence. Francesca's home was very clean and we felt like we were at home :)
