My husband and I spent a wonderful evening with Chef Vary and Edo! Chef Vary is not only an amazing chef, the evening was delightful, entertaining, and most importantly informative! My husband even made pasta! After creating, we ate! Delicious. I recommend this activity for anyone coming to Florence who is a foodie!

Chef Vary was quite engaging and her cooking class one of the highlights of our visit to Italy. Despite a confusion about our scheduled class, she volunteered to open her home and kitchen to us on a Sunday that she was free. It was nice to visit and converse with a native of Florence family and enjoy eating the products... More

Our cooking class with Chef Vary was fantastic! The class was in Chef Vary's house and was a nice size with 4 people (my husband and I and another couple). Chef Vary checked to see if we had any dietary restrictions and offered some suggestions for recipes for the day. We made two kinds of pasta- regular and spinach to... More

The gluten free cooking class with Chef Vary was amazing!!! She was so welcoming and lovely. We learnt how to make everything gluten free and the food was absolutely to die for. I would have to say this cooking class was my favourite part of our trip to Florence. I would highly recommend it.

Chef Vary made our visit to Florence so special. It was my wife's 30th birthday, and I mentioned this to Vary in hope of making it a surprise. When we arrived, we walk into a beautiful 3rd story home overlooking the park to find that it is a personal dinner for the just us. She moved other groups around to... More
