You'll have to contact them directly for availability. I wouldn't know. As far as cost we paid 130 euros each for the advanced class with truffle hunting - well worth it!

My husband and I will be leaving next week for an 11 day trip with our two year old daughter to Rome, Tuscany and Venice. I would love to do a cooking class that we can bring our daughter to. Not sure if anyone has any recommendations for places that wouldn't mind a toddler playing nearby or occasionally joining in on the cooking.

Villa Poggiano right outside Montepulciano offers cooking classes. I am not sure whether one can partake in a cooking class without also staying at the Villa, but it is certainly worth inquiring. Stefania converses perfectly in English - shoot her an e-mail.
