Five girlfriends escaped to Tuscany to spend a week in cooking classes with Claudio which were arranged by the International Kitchen. For five days, we spent most mornings cooking a variety of Italian entrees, vegetables and desserts. Claudio was so willing to share his wonderful recipes, techniques and tricks with us. If we were cooking a particular dish and someone... More

My daughter and I spent the week at Chef Claudio`s B&B, cooking and travelling around the Tuscany countryside. Claudio is a warm, masterful and engaging chef and teacher. His techniques and tips will stay with us forever. A truly wonderful culinary and cultural experience. Claudio personally met us when we arrived and his attentiveness, and that of his staff and...

We chose to create our own trip by booking single classes throughout the Milan/Tuscany region. We had a great trip but not all our cooking experiences were worth the high price! If I were to do it again I would book a few classes through International kitchen and Google other local teachers--this would still provide the variety I am looking... More

We spent several days at this rural location in Tuscany taking classic Italian cooking classes and going on short trips to explore the surrounding countryside. Chef Claudio uses very simple techniques to produce wonderful food. I came home with lots of great recipes!

I took a one day cooking class in Florence with Chef Laura and it was the highlight of my month long trip through Europe. First of all, Florence is an absolutely beautiful city and we spent the morning at the local markets, spending our time picking the right ingredients for our meal and getting a first class education on the...

The International Kitchen planned our twelve day trip to Sicily. It was stellar from beginning to end. Working with them was a joy. The staff was professional and personable, listening to our particular wants and providing us with a wonderful itinerary. The company they are associated with in Sicily is of the highest quality and every minute spent with their... More

I spent 6 days with Chef Claudio and his staff for a cooking vacation. It was an absolute delight. The minute we arrived he personally met us at the door and served us wine. He is a patient, kind, passionate and a great teacher of the Culinary Arts. His sister Sabrina also helps with the tours and anything you need... More

This trip was amazing! The rustic Tuscan location was beautiful! The B & B had a vineyard and all sorts of fruit trees, vegetables, nuts, herbs, etc. We cooked with fresh ingredients everyday. The classes were great! Chef Claudio spent an enormous amount of time showing us techniques and sharing his recipes. We ate outside for most of our lunches... More

We can't say enough great things about Chef Claudio and his team! We did the Intensive 3 days of classes.....wonderful. This was a real hands on cooking experience.....pasta, sauces, main courses, deserts.....all from a great teacher. From walking in gardens for fresh vegetables to seeing the dishes served in Ristorante. Molto Bene!!!!!!!!

A cooking class in Tuscany has been on my bucket list for years. I can't imagine another living up to this experience with Chef Claudio. He is an accomplished teacher in addition to being a great chef and sommelier. If we mentioned wanting to learn something in particular, we made it the next day. Each of us (8 in all)... More
