This was one of the highlights of our four week trip. We were lucky enough to have Giuditta all to ourselves for our lesson at a villa in the hills just outside of Florence. We made fresh pasta, lasagne, a tomato sauce and tiramisu - all fantastic, we can't wait to try the recipes again when we get home.
