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!
