Me and my friend had a fun and informative cooking class with Santa. From the start she welcomed us into her home.and created a cool vibe atmosphere. With 70s Motown music playing in the background, we talked about our experiences cooking. She taught us how to prepare tagliatelle w marinara sauce , spinach ricotta ravioli with sage and olive oil and tiramisu. She also prepared a few appetizers for us to enjoy. She offered us red wine , prosecco , and also a shot of her home made Limoncello which just knocked your socks off. It w as that good!!! She took great pictures of us as we prepared our recipes.and assisted us with technique. Just a relaxing and enjoyable 3 hour experience,

What a fabulous experience and a warm Italian welcome from Flora, husband and brother in law. We were made to feel part of the family from the beginning and managed to try out some of our Italian speaking skills. They were very patient with us! Our lesson in the kitchen was for two dishes and both seemed to truely relect the area and passion for cooking. Hopefully we made good students for the day. Then a generous and beautifully cooked and presented meal with great company. Truely a very special experience and one we would highly recommend.

I love to cook because it brings me joy. Cooking with Rosa amplified that joy with her good humor, her beautiful voice as she sang to the pasta, and her incredible hospitality. She is a fantastic cook and patient teacher. I learned great tips and felt like I spent the day chatting with my girlfriends at home. Thank you for a wonderful day, Rosa!


Anna in Como was absolutely wonderful! I fell sick the day of my original class but she kindly let me come a day later and did the class with just myself. She had brilliant knowledge of the cooking techniques and lots of knowledge about Como and Italy that she taught me. She was very welcoming and her home was beautiful. Thank you Anna!


Francesca in Catania was amazing! Her husband even took photos for us during the experience. The food was so delicious and we had a great time making it :)

We really enjoyed learning and cooking Italian recipes from the Vicenza region that were delicious. Elisa is a wonderful host and makes delicious food. She really does make you feel at home in her home. We can’t wait to do another cooking class with her.


I had such a great experience with Tiziana and Roberto. I would recommend this experience as it's great for both beginners and experienced cooks. We made calamaritto , gnocchi with pesto and friscieu with zebibbo. They were incredibly kind and welcoming and would recommend as a must when visiting Genoa. I will visit again to cook the other courses that they provide.
