Our cookery lessons with Giuditta were a fantastic experience. Giuditta is very professional and competent and went out of her way to show us as much as possible and make sure we were satisfied.

This was one of the highlights of our four week trip. We were lucky enough to have Giuditta all to ourselves for our lesson at a villa in the hills just outside of Florence. We made fresh pasta, lasagne, a tomato sauce and tiramisu - all fantastic, we can't wait to try the recipes again when we get home.
