We had a terrific experience at the IT cooking school and it was one of the best days that we spent in Tuscany. Guiditta is a perfect instructor and we really enjoyed our time with her and with each other.

This cooking class with Guiditta was such a great experience! My friend and I learned to make pasta from scratch, a few sauces, lasagna and tiramisu. Giuditta gave us some good tips on the sequence of events (e.g. when to add salt to your sauce) and was very knowledgeable and accomodating. Afterwards we got to eat the meal on a... More
