Marcella blended the right amount of cooking, technique and advice for our private group of 3 on a Monday night in Florence. She is open to whatever you would like to create from her extensive menu. We hadn't made fresh pasta before so she had us make that. Along with a sauce, pork with mushroom sauce, and a fruit tart... More

We had the best day learning, laughing, cooking, and eating with Marcella. I researched cooking classes quite a bit before deciding to use the Giglio cooking school. I wanted a hands on cooking class where I got to make the food, not watch others do it for me. This was the real deal. Marcella loves what she does and is... More

We took this course because it allowed us to choose our own recipes and menu, so we could learn what we wanted to learn. Marcella is charming and an excellent teacher. We loved it

I was fortunate enough to spend the whole month of September in Florence attending the four week cooking course with Marcella. I had practically no previous knowledge or skills in cooking when I started. During my time at Giglio Cooking I became very confident working in the kitchen. The course has a well thought through structure, building on your skills... More

Marcella was sick. The replacement cook was good but overall I found the experience overpriced and disappointing. The food was good but there was no atmosphere and the wine we were offered had no label and perhaps was the one we used to cook with. I was answered with a scowl and sigh when I informed them I wasn't paying... More

This was a really great time learning to cook classic Italian food with Marcella. She was extremely patient , taught us many things and was very knowledgeable. If you have time this is highly recommended. We finished the session by enjoying the food we prepared with a glass of local wine. Thanks Marcella.

After reading glowing Tripadvisor reviews (all of which are true, by the way!), my spouse, daughter (13), and I did a private night course with Marcella while we were in Florence last week. This was one of the highlights of our trip! First, it was really fun (several times, my daughter would say "this is really happening", which is a... More

My adult daughters and I went to Giglio with Marcella a few weeks ago. We are all experienced cooks, but learned so much from Marcella. She is very knowledgeable and our 3 hours with her were well spent. Thank you Marcella! We hope to see a cookbook from you.

Wonderful class with our two teenage boys - ravioli (filled with spinach and ricotta which even our vegetable phobic son demolished!!), pizza, fried calamari and tiramisu! Excellent experience from start to finish - the boys loved being hands on and making the pasta and pizza dough from scratch as well as learning how to use a knife properly (particularly enjoyed...

Marcella was a wonderful host and teacher. She balanced technique and fun perfectly so that my children and my husband and I each learned from the experience. The class is a perfect way to learn traditional Italian recipes that you can prepare in your own home. So fun!!
