We had a wonderful time learning to make gluten-free pasta with Chef Vary. She was enthusiastic and helpful, and she clearly knows her gluten-free cuisine! My husband has celiac disease, and Vary was very careful to make sure that we knew how she cleaned her surfaces and used separate cookware and equipment for gluten vs. gluten-free cooking. Chef Vary gave us several options for what we could make for our lunch (we chose ravioli and gnocchi) and then we ended up making so much food that we were able to take several to-go containers for lunch & dinner the next day too! After the lesson, we had a lovely time just sitting in Vary's 500-year-old dining room, with a view out toward the Boboli Gardens, treated to a few nice glasses of red wine from Vary's husband Edoardo. Because it was a gluten-free class, we did a private lesson (so it was a bit on the more expensive side), but it was TOTALLY WORTH IT! We have made ravioli several times since we arrived home and feel totally grateful to Vary for giving us the knowledge and confidence to expand our GF cooking repertoire!

Chef Vary is warm, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The kitchen classroom is a wonderfully private set up where you can work your way around the classroom from Island, to appliances, to sink and eventually to sit down and enjoy your meal. Chef Vary was so accommodating of our requests and desires and we enjoyed preparing and eating everything. We made pasta, a local Florentine sauce, and lasagna. We were late and so we couldn’t make everything she planned but she was so understanding and flexible because it was a private class. We plan on doing more classes with her - both in person and over Zoom. It was worth the time and money! Would definitely encourage all who are interested to take the time to learn.

Vary’s cooking class is pure gluten free heaven!! A must do for foodies! It is the perfect activity to do with your partner, but must be so fun with friends as well! Vary and het husband were so nice, she thought us so much about authentic gluten free italian cooking. Truly a must do if you are in Florence. It was definitely my highlight while on my trip through Tuscany and exceeded all my expectations. The cooking class is such a fun and relaxing experience and afterwards you get to enjoy the delicious food you made in a nice and private setting, accompanied with great wines. I recommend this to everybody!!

Our chef was an expert at Gluten-fee cooking . All surfaces , pans and equipment were completely used for only gluten-free cooking .Floyrs were sealed and stored in a special box . She was wonderful . No worries if you have celiacs.. you’ll walk away with a satisfied full stomach and the experience and recipes to recreate at home. A fabulous experience!

Three of us took Chef Vary's private GLUTEN-FREE class, and it was a top highlight of our week in Italy. Chef Vary is VERY careful about gluten, for example, opening new salt just for this class. She has a delightful personality -- warm yet opinionated about the best in Italian cooking ("Did you notice we didn't use garlic?") She charged us to do almost all the cooking and we made delicious and unusual recipes -- ravioli with ricottta & truffles in a pumpkin sauce, for example. The Foccacia with Rosemary came out amazing, as well. Two hours of cooking flew by, and then we enjoyed the best meal we ate in all our time in Italy!

A culinary adventure! So much fun and the highlight of our vacation. Hard to take notes because class is very hands on, but extrememly important to help you remember. Chef will send recipes but notes are key! Gluten Free was amazing!
