During a recent stay in Florence, I was fortunate enough to participate in 3 classes at the Magici Sapori Cookery School with Giuseppe Castri. I was told the classes would last for approximately four hours, however, often they lasted for much longer, during which time we worked as a team to prepare a delicious meal of an antipasto, primo, secondo, and dessert. Giuseppe, his wife Sandra, and translator Linda were fantastic! Such an incredibly generous and lovely group of people who made these lessons very entertaining, informative and fun! Each course of the meal was accompanied with the appropriate wine and we were fortunate to try a sample of the regions finest cheeses as well. These were more than just a regular cooking class - they were an experience! I will most certainly take part in more should I ever have the opportunity to return to beautiful Florence!

My friends and I arranged a private cooking class in Florence at Magici Sapori. It was incredible!! The kitchen was modern, spotless, and provided room for the 7 of us to cluster around the cook top and easily work with our chef, Giuseppe Castri. We prepared 4 courses and though we were all skilled cooks and our party included a professional cook, we learned many tips and much history of Florentine cooking. We enjoyed eating each of our courses paired with a perfect wine, and long after the cooking was over, we sat and sipped espresso and enjoyed the company of Mr. and Mrs. Castri and their lovely assistant and translator, Claudia. In fact, by the end of the day, we all felt we understood everything Giuseppe was saying without translation, though perhaps that can be attributed to the perfect wines and excellent company. We all felt that this cooking experience was the best part of our two weeks in Italy and we will certainly cook with Giuseppe again should we ever be lucky enough to visit Florence in the future!!! www.magicisapori.it
