My husband and I booked a cooking class with In Tavola a few months before our trip at the beginning of this April. We had read the reviews that some were unhappy that it wasn't a private class, or that they gave one bottle of wine when you sit down to eat. We booked it anyway and I'm so glad we did!
First of all, yes, you cook in groups, a group of 4. We were very lucky and had a wonderful couple to chat with all night. Our instructor Francisco was a total delight, so full of energy! He made sure that everyone in the group was involved and the jobs were evenly divided.
We laughed the whole night, and the food was fantastic! We prepared 4 courses, our appetizer was grilled eggplant caprese cups (layered grilled eggplant with fresh mozzarella & basil), our primi pati was fettuccini cut pasta with a fresh Mediterranean sauce, the main was stuffed chicken breast with a red pepper, olive and cheese filling, and the dessert was an AMAZING cinnamon vanilla custard dish. Everything was to die for. At dinner we asked to buy a second bottle of wine (because we all wanted a second glass), and they were happy to bring us another free of charge.
The atmosphere was fun, the food was fantastic, I learned a few things & got a copy of the recipes, and had a GREAT night. We were there from roughly 6:00 - 10:00 and then had a lovely night walk back to the hotel. It was by far one of the best nights on our trip. This class is fun for cooks of all levels, even if you're the type to burn toast you will still have a great experience.
