What an amazing and fun experience we had at My Tuscan Kitchen cooking class. The date we originally selected was full but Arianna managed to organise an alternative date that fitted with our travel plans. We were a party of 5 family and friends and were joined by another group. We learned so much about not just preparation and cooking... More

Arianna organized a cooking class for our family of 6 adults in our villa. It was one of the highlights of our trip this summer. It was very hands-on.....we prepared all four courses. Then, we enjoyed the fabulous meal....once back inside..... they had cleaned it all up for us. What a wonderful night!

We requested a cooking class for our group of eight (parents with kids aged 25-15 yrs). Arianna and friends at first didn't have an opening on such short notice but within a day they replied that they had found a time slot for us to do a 4 course Pizza Lab cooking class. We met Massimo at the main office... More

We found Arianna on the web and decided to book a truffle hunting trip from Florence. Their location is about 1 hour away from Florence and we met Arianna at her office.

We had a fantastic day out. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the winery, where we had a tour of the factory and vineyard. We were then taken to the owner's house, and given lots of delicious wine to taste, as well as fabulous local meats and cheese with spelt salad. We were then taken to... More

We arranged this fantastic experience with Arianna while we were already on holiday in Tuscany and were so impressed with the easy, no hassle arrangements less than 24 hours beforehand.
