My husband and I are always a bit skeptical of doing any sort of excursion/activity on our trips but I really wanted to take a cooking class while we were in Italy. I had found this place online and the woman at our hotel recommended it. We booked and payed online very easily the night before (in January) and had no problem getting in. Our group was only 6 people and because of that I think it was more enjoyable. You start off by meeting your instructor/chef - ours was Marco and he was AMAZING. Then you walk over to the marketplace and Marco walks you through the market. We stopped at the fishmarket and he explained some things, then to the cheeses and cured meats where you sample some incredible boards, then to pick up your meat. After you have those you go to the cooking school and get to work. Marco was awesome at explaining why he was doing certain things and what to look for while cooking the dishes. Individually you work on your own dough and learn what to look for. You also work on the tiramisu. While some f the stuff is cooking you sit down and enjoy wine and more cheese. Then, you get back to your pasta and lunch is practically served! The food was FABULOUS. We are pretty conservative by saying we had a fabulous meal but truly, the pasta dishes were the best we had the entire trip and the tiramisu was the best I've ever had in my life. I couldn't stop eating. It certainly helped that Marco was a fabulous guide - honest, funny, knowledgable, and personable. I cannot recommend this place enough, if you are in Florence you should absolutely take part of your day to do this. We can't wait to make our dishes at home (even though I'm sure our American ingredients won't be nearly as good!!)

This was a great experience. We could’ve skipped the marketplace in the morning but the cooking and endless wine drinking was fantastic. It was so satisfying making our pasta from scratch and seeing how to make 2 kinds of sauces. It was a ton of fun and my teenagers loved it. They can’t wait to get home and cook a meal!

There have been a lot of well-deserved, excellent reviews of this tour already - Catarina taking us to the San Lorenzo market to sample a number of meats and cheeses, the group watching the making of the Bolognese sauce and the fresh tomato sauces, the donning of the aprons to make our own tagliatelle, ravioli and tiramisu, the sampling of the appys that John and Catarina provided. However, one of the most enjoyable aspects of this tour for me was the sense of humour that Catarina, John and the fellow at the deli in the market all exhibited during our tour. They were all so funny one couldn't help but enjoy! The food we prepared was delicious, and I no longer use any machines when making my pasta at home. As others have already said, this is a 'must do' when you are in Florence.

My significant other will appease me when I want to do cooking classes while in another country. This class was enjoyable! We met at a location that was very easy to find with their detailed description. We met our chef there, who took us to the market to show us around and teach us about some of the market trades. Then we did a cheese tasting. After cheese tasting, we walked over to where the classes are held. The class is very organized with the order in which courses are made. Our chef was entertaining, made jokes and was also supportive and friendly. We had such a great time with our classmates too because of the level of involvement. My significant other thoroughly enjoyed the class and we both can not wait to show our friends and families what we learned!
