Hi from Ivana!

My cuisine is quite varied: I really like the appetizers that abound on my table, and then move on to first courses such as fresh pasta and risotto. Meat plays an important role, because my family loves it, even if I personally prefer fish. I also really like desserts, especially those with a spoon, but also strudel and tarts.

We had an absolute blast at Ivana’s cooking class!! It was the perfect way to learn more about Italian culture in the most authentic way, cooking and eating together! Ivana was not only a great teacher, but an amazing host. Her and her husband were incredibly warm and welcoming, we can’t say enough kind words about them both. So incredibly grateful to have had this experience in their beautiful home!

The highlight of our trip! We spent a few nights in Florence and this cooking class was the jewel of our trip. Ivana and her sous-chef Vincenzo opened their home to us and were extremely accommodating. We spent the evening eating, drinking, and laughing. My husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for an authentic cooking experience in Florence!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! Definitely the highlight of our trip. Ivana’s expertise in cooking was excellent and she shared her personal tips that made the food exceptional. Both her and her husband made us feel welcome in their home and we had a lovely evening. I could not recommend the class more highly.

This class has absolutely made my trip. I had a fantastic time with Ivana and Vincenzo. They welcomed us into their home and assisted us in cooking some of the most delicious food I have ever had. They continually went above and beyond with wine, appetisers, multiple pasta types and dessert. I could not recommend this class more.

If you are in Florence and want to take a cooking class- we cannot recommend Cesarine enough for a private course. You must request Ivana! Her home was not far from the city center and she and her husband could not have been more welcoming into their beautiful home! Ivana is an incredible teacher and we made 3 types of homemade pasta. She is patient, a great conversationalist and went above and beyond to make our experience so special! This class was truly one of the highlights of our honeymoon in Italy and we cannot thank Ivana and Vincent enough for welcoming us into their home!
