The evening was great - learned to make delicious pasta with Luca!

My sister and I had a cooking class with Luca in his home. Not only was he prepared to cook, he was a delight to chat with while he taught us how to make pasta and stuffed peppers. I would definitely book a session with Luca again.

Our evening with Luca was fantastic! He was extremely patient with us and taught us several new ideas about making pasta, soffritto, and game meat such as boar. Even better knife techniques! He was also willing to teach us partly in Italian, since we study the language. We ate with his lovely family and had great conversation around the table. We will definitely book another visit with Luca the next time we are in Firenze.

We had so much fun cooking with Luca in his lovely home. He was so kind and was an excellent teacher! It truly was one of our favorite parts of our trip and it was so special meeting his family and enjoying the meal in the comfort of his own home which was very lovely. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an authentic experience! Thank you to Luca and his family for treating us like family :)

We had a fabulous time at the home of our chef, Luca. He and his family's hospitality was superb. His home was clean and he was so patient with all our questions on how to make pasta. We had so much fun and would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to do a cooking class when traveling to Florence!

Our pasta and tiramisu making class with Luca was a perfect evening in Florence for my husband and me! He was very patient and made making delicious pasta from scratch seem easy. Highly recommend.
