Great food and great experience
Woody_S

I learned that Tuscan cooking is one part science and two parts art and the artist needs experience to make a great meal.

Thanks for the review, I think you understand what cooking means because cooking is not just about eating but much, much more. It is a magical agreement in which history, art, culture, wisdom, harmony and love come together at the table.

Cooking in Italian
Sandra_W

We enjoyed meeting the people in our group. The main instructor spoke only Italian and talked a lot with translation coming after very long instructions. It was easy to loose interest because we don’t understand Italian. I felt bad that her translator was sick but especially with COVID it was a bit unnerving that she was continually coughing during the lesson, and the person doing most of the serving of the food. It took a very long time to actually have our food served and we were 40 minutes past time that we were to finish. Luckily we had a driver and didn’t plan on taking a train back to Florence.

Thanks for the review, it is always stimulating to receive criticism about the organization of a lesson and not on the contents and on the prepared food I would like to clarify that the teaching staff are vaccinated, have Greepass and that the school applies all the rules imposed by the Italian Government to fight and prevent COVID-19 and that, but I may not be right, there was someone on the staff with a cough who served food coughing . with regard lella

Best Part of My Italy Trip
Cheryl_C

Well this was the best part of my 14 day trip to Italy! Because we were there in the off season, my mom and I were the only two people in the class which made it seem like an even more personal experience. Between the tips and tricks Leila showed us for cooking as well as how delicious the food was, this was by far the best. The pasta (we made!) was delicious as well as the soup, chicken and dessert. There was so much food we couldn't eat it all. We've already purchased some of the tools to make these recipes at home. If you are staying in Siena, the walk up and down the hill to the cooking class could be a lot but other than that the location wasn't far. A+ and I recommend to anyone that is in the area.

Amazing experience

We had an amazing time during the cooking class. It was easy to follow, but the meal we prepared was unique and delicious. In addition, we learned about the how the dishes we prepared fit into the broader culture of Siena and Tuscany; it was one of our favorite experience during our time in Italy. Highly recommend.

I went to a cooking class last night with my husband and it was awesome. We learned a lot of new techniques specific to Italy and Siena even, and the food tasted amazing. We really enjoyed our time with Francesco, who also helped accommodate us as we were a little late (our train broke down). He was extremely pleasant to work with and made sure we were following along every step of the way. I would highly recommend coming here with your significant other or family - the space is amazing.

This was a highlight of our trip in Tuscany. We had a small class, just two of us with chief Lella and translator. Honestly, after spending a week in Tuscany, this was the best dinner we had. Class was really interesting as we prepared many different dishes and made our own Pici pasta. Lella is really professional. This was money well spent considering that for a 4 course dinner and a bottle of wine you have to spend way over 100 euros in good restaurant.
