If you are new to the area, or just new to cooking, spending an afternoon with "Cooking with Lucas" is a wonderful way to both learn about downtown Vicenza, seeing the less traveled locations and to experience authentic Italian cooking. I've been to three classes with Lucas, and must say that the recipes that I have learned to cook have... More

Came to visit my daughter And son-in-law and my first grandchild. It happened to be my birthday, and my husband and daughter planned a cooking experience for me. What a wonderful, education experience. I can't wait to get home and try the recipes out. Thanks for making my birthday so special! I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Italy... More

My team and I were in Vicenza for only three weeks and we were able to hope on a guided beer tour in the mountains of Italy and a personalized cooking class. Lucas was a great guide and chef, if you are in the area please book a cooking class with Lucas. The lasagna was the best i have tasted.

I have taken cooking classes and tours with Lucas and he is hands-down a wonderful cook and outstanding tour leader. He is very welcoming and easy to talk to. His knowledge of food and the Italian culture allows you a chance to ask an expert and walk away with practical knowledge. I have recommended him to all of my friends... More

Cooking with Lucas is one of my favorite things to do in Vicenza. I've learned to make homemade pasta, which I never dreamed I could do, tiramisu and a handful of other dishes that are by far better than meal I've had in town, and we made them by scratch! Lucas is so personable and his home is adorable in... More

I have yet to take one of Lucas' famous cooking classes, but I have been on two of his local tours - a day trip to Bologna and an overnight trip to Florence. Lucas took our small group to show us a few tourist "must sees," but when it came to eating and shopping, he directed us to the non-tourist... More

Our family participated in preparing a meal from making the bread and ending with preparing the dessert, on August 1, 2014. We had fun and of course the food was excellent! We were visiting our daughter and her family. A great educational experience.

My husband and I attended his tomato class a few days ago. We loved it!! Lucas is a great instructor; knowledgeable, personable, friendly, funny, etc. We made a few dishes with incredibly fresh and delicious summer tomatoes at the peak of their season. It was fun and educational. I will definitely make some of these recipes at home.

We had family visiting us in Vicenza, and this was the highlight of their trip. It is a great family-style lesson, with perfect food and of course wine. This is definitely a bucket list item. Lucas is a great teacher, who makes even those not comfortable in the kitchen feel like we have mad culinary skills. And of course as... More
