About
Owner of Le Caggiole, millenary farmhouse and home of my family for more than 7 generations. I spent many years with my grandmother learning to cook dishes of the oldest tradition. Based on this precious cultural heritage, I studied the ingredients, their seasonality and sustainable production systems, as well as cooking and tasting techniques. Following this passion, I have been Chef in agriturismo and also Sommelier. The last 5 years, I share these passions by organizing cooking classes.

A truly wonderful experience. My wife and I took the pasta making class and learned techniques that we use all the time now. Giacomo and Cristiana were very knowledgeable, personable, and kind. Giacomo is passionate about food and emphasized using only the highest quality ingredients. Really a great experience and we will absolutely book another class here during our next visit.

Just finished an incredible cooking class and I couldn't wait to share my experience with all of you!

If you're tired of the same old routine and looking to embark on a culinary adventure, this cooking class is an absolute game-changer! Forget about drinking classes and chasing likes on social media because this is all about discovering a new way of life.

During this class, I not only learned how to prepare a mouthwatering five-course meal but also gained a deeper understanding of the importance of a healthy and locally grown lifestyle. The simplicity and complexity of the dishes blew me away, and I can confidently say that it was the best meal I had during my entire three-week visit to Italy!

But here's the best part - I now have all the tools and knowledge to recreate this incredible meal at home. From selecting the freshest ingredients to mastering the art of wine pairing, this class has truly empowered me to continue my quest for culinary excellence.

If you're ready to take your cooking skills to the next level and embark on a journey of flavor and discovery, I highly recommend giving this cooking class a try. Trust me, it's a life-changing experience that will leave you craving for more!

Giacomo & Cristiana were fantastic hosts. We enjoyed learning how to make two types of pasta and tiramisu. Giacomo was a great instructor! He explained how to properly make the pasta, but also how to make delicious food with simple ingredients. After we completed making the pasta, Giacomo cooked for us and paired beautiful wines with our meal. His knowledge of food and wine is extensive, and I love that he shared it with all of us.

It was a wonderful experience. Giacomo is truly passionate about cooking authentic, local and fresh products, and he shared his passion with us. We learned hands-on how to make gnocchi and parpadelle from start to finish, tiramisu classic style, and the sauces and accompaniments. Throughout, Giacomo and Cristina shared their stories, helped us understand the science and principles behind the recipes, and answered our questions. At the tasting, Giacomo also paired every dish with a local Tuscan wine and explained the reasoning for it. Overall it was a great and rewarding morning, culminating in a delicious lunch. We would definitely come back, and recommend it. Make sure to bring comfortable shoes and an appetite.

What a GREAT experience! I can’t cook biscuits, but left class after making pappardelle and pici pasta along with my favorite dessert of tiramisu. Giacomo and Cristiana were a delight.

What a great experience! Giocomo and Christiana were gracious and patient teachers! We made two types of pasta (pappardelle & pici) and tiramisu. We then enjoyed a fabulous meal of our fresh pastas with two of Giacomo’s fabulous sauces, each paired with wine. The great meal was topped off by the best tiramisu I’ve ever had! Thanks for a wonderful lesson and a great memory!

This was a tremendous day with Chef Giacomo. You can feel his love for the traditions passed down from his grandmother. He is not just instructing, he is teaching and coaching with great passion. Every ingredient is organic and the skills are easy to bring home. As he says, great food does not have to be complex, just done with “Great Ingredients and Great Passion”

We booked this excursion to learn how to cook some traditional Italian dishes, and it delivered! Giacomo & Cristiana were excellent hosts at their beautiful Tuscan property. We had a fun, hands-on experience making several dishes, including my all time favorite: gnocchi! From appetizers, courses, and dessert we covered everything, and Giacomo had amazing helpful cooking tips, advice on sourcing ingredients, and even details we never knew about how important temperature is in the preparation if the food, not just the cooking. This was a real treat and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with friends. We highly recommend this experience!

This class was absolutely wonderful! Giacomo and Cristiana were lovely (and entertaining) hosts and Giacomo is a great teacher! His knowledge and passion come through in everything he shares and teaches. Not only did we learn to make incredible pasta and tiramisu, but we had fun with the other 6 people in this small class and we learned so much about the ingredients, the techniques and the background behind why Giacomo cooks the way he does and why Tuscans cook the way they do. After making the pasta and tiramisu, we sat down to a delicious lunch, eating the pasta we made with sauces Giacomo made to go specially with each pasta, paired with wines chosen by Giacomo. He explained how he made the sauces and why he paired certain wines with each course. I was excited to take this class and it exceeded my expectations! I HIGHLY recommend it!!

My friends and I had an amazing time learning to cook some of the Italian food we had wanted to gain knowledge and understanding of!

Giacomo showed us how simple, local ingredients could be showcased in beautiful Italian cooking, which we got to eat at the end of this experience!

Anyone looking to learn to cook Italian food in this region should definitely reach out to this exceptional well taught and knowledgeable chef and teacher!
