“Incredible Experience!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2010

I can't say enough about this! We booked this based on a suggestion from our hotel, and it was beyond expectations. Giuseppe and Sandra were friendly, entertaining, and excellent cooks and teachers.

We prepared a delicious 7 course meal, tasted some amazing cheeses and wines, and learned some helpful cooking tips during the class.

If I ever make it back to the Florence area, the first thing I do will be to book another class with Giuseppe.

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed December 31, 2009

Magici Sapori was, hands down, the best experience of our recent trip to Europe! We were booked into the pasta course from our B&B hosts, and were not entirely sure of what to expect. However, we could not have been more impressed!
The hosts were so, so, so lovely and generous.
We made four different types of pasta, while they brought us cheeses and wines to taste throughout the evening. In the end, the pasta turned out to be the best we have ever eaten.
The course was only supposed to go for three to four hours, but we stayed for almost seven hours, as they continued to bring us delicious wines and grappa to taste.
They were so knowledgeable, and were brilliant cooks. But we were most impressed with their hospitality and the great company we experienced.
We would really consider going back to Italy just to do this course again, or even better, cook there for weeks!
We can't speak highly enough of this beautiful cooking school.
Please, do experience it, if nothing else in Florence!!

“Great food, great company!”
Reviewed March 10, 2009

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!

“The best cooking class ever!”
Reviewed July 28, 2007

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
