Thank you both for a wonderful and fun filled lesson on Tuscan cooking. The international mix of the 8 participants added to a great day. Upon arriving home, we've already applied some of your instruction and enjoyed every bit. For those who wish to take a cooking class, I highly recommend this one.

Giuseppina & Luca are incredible hosts & teachers. They are completely at ease with everyone and gave all of us many opportunities to jump in and create our meal. Giuseppina really knows her stuff! She is well respected in Certaldo. We went to the butcher, coffee shop, and fresh market and all the while, folks are greeting her and us.... More

Giuseppina manages to make you feel that you can cook like a real Italian. Everything is incredibly well organized without it feeing structured. She talks through the choice of menu and the ingredients with passion and knowledge and helps you understand what the essence of Italian food is. She also gets you to cook without you feeling awkward and she... More

This was the highlight of our trip. We rented Tra Sogno E Realta thru Airbnb. If you want a true jewel in Tuscany close to everything check out the... More

This was by far one of the best cooking classes I've been to: along with 4 other couples, who we didn't know, we made a delicious Tuscan meal, shared the work, wine and laughter with excellent instructions from Guiseppina's and her son.
