Patrizia and Massimo are salt of the earth; they're easily two of the most genuine and sincere people I've ever met. This made the experience all the better. The class only consisted of my wife and I (and our 1.5 year-old who tagged along). Thus, it made for a very intimate day in the kitchen. If you're looking for an... More

We had a super lesson from Patrizia and Massimo. They involved the children very well and inspired them to try italian cookery since we have been home. The ambiance is spot on and Patrizia was very interesting explaining the background to why they cook what they do, not just how. Her English is very fluent, they made us feel most... More

My husband and spent a wonderful afternoon with Patrizia and Massimo in their beautiful Tuscan farmhouse surrounded by vineyards. It was in fact the unexpected highlight of our 5 day anniversary trip to Tuscany. We had such a great time. Patrizia welcomed us into her home and conveyed her ethos of feeding the family (eating in season, organically and to... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking an amazing cooking class with Patrizia and Mossimo. We learned about meaning and the love that is poured into their cooking. We tasted cheeses, balsamic vinegar, meats and wine most of which are grown on their farm. The class was not only a ton of fun but the food was fabulous.... More

The cooking class was truely memorable. Patrizia's philosophy and cooking instruction were magnificent. I would rate this as a MUST DO for any visit to the Chianti/Tuscany area. Of note we were 5 family members: My wife and myself(40 something) her Mom and husband, and our 18y/o daughter. All came away full and happy. Can't wait to come back.

Learning about cooking in their home kitchen was an extraordinary and engaging experience. Patrizia began with her wholistic philosophy of food and humans. We then entered the kitchen and began with the end in mind. Fresh, local cheeses, their own wines and herbs, local meat and fresh ingredients made for a wonderful afternoon of laughter and love! We felt so... More

My husband and I took the class with Patrizia and Massimo and we've had the time of our lives! It was a great authentic experience - we cooked together using the freshest products, most of which came straight from their farm. The atmosphere was wonderful and full of humor and through it all we learned about Italian cooking and the... More

Not only did I get to make biscotti and ravioli, I got to eat them for lunch with the most delicious stuffed pork. prepared by Massimo as we cooked. I can't speak highly enough of the experience, Patrizia and Massimo are two of the warmest people it has been my pleasure... More
