I enjoyed 5 days of personal cooking lessons in my rental home in San Casciano September and October 2013 under the guidance of Anita White. What a fabulous experience! Each day, we shopped in local markets so that I could learn the Italian words for ingredients then together we prepared a 4 course menu. Of course, we ate as we... More

They cooked at the villa we were staying at and the whole day was a wonderful experience. We all got chance to contribute to the lunch that day and learned some very useful tips... More

We were 20 adults and 4 children and took a wonderful villa (Villa Barberina) for a week in June. Anita came every day to make us lunch and dinner (and a wedding lunch) and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Lovely lady who made us an never ending variety of delicious dishes and was happy to chat and share her... More

We had a really great time with Anita and Josef's cooking class : we made, with their professional supervision, a full typical Italian meal that we chose to make (entry, pasta, meat with vegetables, desert) during the afternoon and then ate the meal (with Italian wine) with them at dinner (we started at 4pm and finished after dinner at 8pm)....

My friends and I rented a villa in Tuscany and after a busy, exciting trip we wanted a relaxing and intimate last night together. Anita and her passion for classic Italian/Tuscan cooking was the perfect solution. The recipes were easy enough for novices to prepare, especially with Anita looking over your shoulder and providing the instruction and encouragement, and the... More

We had an instructor come to our villa to demonstrate classic Tuscan recipes for dinner. It was a very hands on class were we all got to participate in the preparation of a fine meal.
