We had a ton of fun at the Old Taverna Cooking School. Chef William was so accommodating to us. We learned a 4 course Sorrento Italian dinner and had a lot of fun doing it. Compared to a traditional USA cooking school, we did only a portion of the cooking/prep, but for a 3 hour course that included eating the meal, that was perfect (from reading other reviews, I think this is a fairly consistent theme in the cooking classes here). Be prepared to write down tons of excellent cooking tips (my wife and I both enjoy cooking and are not novices and we got tons of great tips). Chef William understands food and its basis and teaches throughout.
What you can expect - a fun night, great simple recipes to take home, a delicious dinner, and a very warm welcoming staff.
What not to expect - to prepare the meal start to finish or have a printed recipe (you need to take lots of notes).
I think the mixture of hands on prep, observation and eating was just right. I woulds recommend this without hesitation to others.
