Siamo stati ospiti dalla Signora Lidia a Otranto. Lidia e tutta la sua famiglia sono persone straordinarie. È stata una serata bellissima e ci siamo sentite a casa. Tutto quello che ci ha preparato era davvero buonissimo, fatto con tanta esperienza e amore. Abbiamo imparato tanto e consigliamo a tutti questa meravigliosa esperienza che porteremo nel cuore.

My family's cooking class with Lidia was fantastic -- a highlight of our trip to Otranto. She and her daughter welcomed us into her home and got us all cooking right away -- and was especially good at making my 7 year old feel empowered to participate and comfortable doing so. Lidia was so warm and generous, and we learned a ton -- skills we will definitely use again: from the detailed order or seasoning eggplant parmesan, to how to make two kinds of pasta by hand, make tiramisu, fritters -- it was a delight! The beautiful lunch in her garden after cooking all morning was amazing. Highly recommend!

I felt welcome, at ease and comfortable to visit Lidia's wonderful home and to meet her family. It was wonderful to see and be involved in making tiramisu and pasta. I have never done this before, so it was a completely new experience and Lidia was amazing with her instructions, guidance and support. Her family helped explain the cooking process, and the four courses were all amazing. I was blown away with the quality of the food and cooking. A really amazing experience that I will cherish.

Was für ein Erlebnis! Wir sind sehr herzlich in der Familie aufgenommen worden und hatten ein hervorragendes vier Gänge Menü! Mama Lidia hat mit uns das Tiramisu und überbackene Muscheln, Dorade und Orecchiette Tomaten Sugo in ihrer Wohnung gemacht. Nach drei stunden kochen, haben wir herrlich im Garten gespeist. Eine absolut einzigartige Erfahrung in der Umgebung einer italienischen Mama zu kochen. Sehr empfehlenswert.

We loved our cooking experience with Lidia. She was a warm and generous host and teacher, reminding me of my mother with her passion for food and cooking. The outdoor setting for lunch was delightful and it was great to meet her family. Giulio deserves special mention.
