    A Dream Come True
    Maria Cristina’s private cooking class in her home was one of the best day of our lives. The authenticity, soulfulness and deliciousness was beyond anything we could have hoped for. Cristina is truly a gorgeous host and her home is exquisite. I can’t recommend spending time with her highly enough!

    Last Minute Changes - a Breeze
    The Traveling Spoon team was amazing in their support. 3 days before our class, our host fell ill, and the class had to be canceled. They hustled at the last minute to find a similar experience so that the cooking class could still happen. We are so grateful!

    Like cooking with family
    Maria Christina was SO great. So accommodating, kind and friendly. She welcomed us into her amazing home with open arms. We got to chat about what we liked to eat and she suggested great options for us to cook. She showed us how to cook ravioli, so simple and so delicious. The highlight was cooking the amazing dessert Baci Panteschi, a specialty of the little island where she visits friends regularly, and not something we had seen anywhere else in Italy. A truly special and memorable experience that I would recommend to everyone.

    Wonderful experience!
    This was such a fun experience and I can’t say enough good things about Mirella and Stefano. They were incredibly welcoming, accommodated food allergies and set up a bed for our son with special needs. The cooking lesson is well organized and was delicious. Highly recommend!

    Local couple are the best chefs and hosts!
    Mirella and Stefano are the absolute best hosts! If you want to experience local Florentine cuisine, choose them. The trip to the market, time preparing the food in their kitchen and then enjoying the meal with them was a wonderful experience.

    Highly recommended private cooking class
    It was a wonderful experience. The class was in the beautifully remodeled home from the 12th century in the countryside. The instruction went well & the food was the best we have ever had for the dishes prepared. She's very personable and detail oriented. Plus gave a us opportunity to practice making the recipes & take videos & pictures.

    Peak Highlight of our amazing trip.
    We had many great meals on this trip, but our best and most memorable was the one we made ourselves with Mirella & Stefano. We laughed and chilled out for hours. Pure joy. Homemade gnocchi. Figs from the garden. Wine from local vineyards, Incredible place with the warmest people. Absolutely loved it. Note it’s STEFano, not Stef-AH-no thanks.

    Florence highlight!
    By far the best thing we did in Italy! Learning about history and culture through food with Linda was an incredible experience. She is knowledgeable, fun, generous, and brilliant. Linda took me, my husband and my two adult children through the Florence market. We ate, we learned, we drank, and we laughed. We didn’t want it to end. Will not travel to Italy again without another experience with Linda. Cannot recommend highly enough!

    A fabulous day!
    What a fantastic day we had with Mirella and Stefano! Not only was the food we prepared delicious, but we got so many cooking tips from these professional chefs! we learned about life in the city of Antella and how food there is such an important part of the culture. An absolutely great experience! We have made the recipes we learned so many times since.

    A must book experience!
    MUST BOOK! Our time cooking with Mirella and Stefano was truly the highlight of our trip to Italy! Their home is so beautiful and they taught us incredible, easy dishes we could replicate when we got home. It is such a fabulous way to really experience Florence and the cuisine of the area. Highly, highly recommend!

    BEST EXPERIENCE DURING 3 WEEKS IN ITALY
    If there is one thing on your Italian vacation you cannot cannot CANNOT miss, it's dinner with Mirella and Stefano. I know the country is known for the charm of its people and the grandeur of its food, but literally nothing we did compared to this. They were the warmest, most charming hosts, and the food was out of this world. My only complaint is that they didn't eat with us, but I can hardly quibble. A lifetime memory of extraordinary proportions.

    Mirella & Stefano Even Got My Husband Cooking!
    This class was one of my favorite memories from our trip to Italy! When we booked this event, we had no idea what to expect. It seemed odd to be arriving at someone's private home and we were a little nervous, but from the second Mirella greeted us at our Uber, we never had a another doubt about the fun evening ahead. Mirella & Stefano put us completely at ease and it seemed like we were old friends hanging out together cooking, drinking and chatting. I was excited to learn how to make tagliatelle & gnocchi (noodles) from scratch and we made one of our favorite dishes, eggplant parmesan. I learned how easy it is to make tiramisu, which I served at Christmas and was a big hit, as well as sausage bruschetta from Italian ingredients, which I served at Thanksgiving and no one left room for dinner! Mirella & Stefano were kind enough to provide a cookbook of all the recipes we made together to take home! What made this class special and unique is that it didn't seem like a class at all! My husband can barely boil water (or so he tells me), but Stefano had him chopping, mixing, and prepping like it was second nature. The best part, other than the delicious food we ate until we were stuffed, was chatting at the table about family, world events, life in Italy compared to the US, and their wedding plans. I would recommend Mirella and Stefano's class to any couple, family, group, or just yourself! You will learn a lot and have fun making new friends while doing it!

    Amazing Experience!
    My husband and I booked this experience during our honeymoon. It was FANTASTIC! The food was excellent, but the company was even better! It was so nice to be welcomed into Mirella's home and cook with her and Stefano. We would highly recommend this excursion to anyone traveling to Florence.

    Food and Friends in Florence
    My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Florence and signed up for this cooking class. We met the two chefs, Mirella and Stefano, at the outdoor market, where we spent a lovely morning learning about local produce, cheeses, meats, and other specialties. We then hopped in Mirella and Stefano's car and took a short ride to their charming villa just outside Florence. We spent the entire day cooking with them -- pasta, gnocchi, bruschette, eggplant parm, and tiramisu, and then enjoyed the meal in their garden with them. The day could not have been more perfect. We are still in touch with them on a regular basis. They touched not only our stomachs, but our hearts. Not only did we learn some amazing dishes, we met two fantastic friends. We can't wait to go back and see them again.

    Fantastic Private Class
    We had a fantastic three-hour class in Mirella’s kitchen and garden. We thought it might be awkward going to someone’s house, but Mirella and Stefano were extremely warm and welcoming. It felt like cooking with a friend. Their garden is lovely. It was beautiful day. We highly recommend Tuscan Cooking Class in Florence with a Local Expert.
