This was an unforgettable experience. Katia is absolutely amazing. We learned so much about both cooking as well as the history of the recipes. We enjoyed the most amazing meal. A must do!

“Excellent hidden gem in beautiful wine region.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I took part in a class as part of our honeymoon. We found them on tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. Katia was fantastic. Her English is faultless and her knowledge on Italian food is endless and authentic.
We made lots of dishes, including making our own pasta. We had about two hours of teaching interspersed with eating and drinking for another two hours. A great evening.
We learnt lots in our small class of just another couple and us. We could ask lots of questions and felt very at home.
The surroundings are beautiful so, unsurprisingly, the wines with dinner were great.
The location is a little out of the way, so leave plenty of time. It's opposite a swimming pool, if you're lost!
All in all a very good value activity. At €60 each this is much cheaper than competitors and we would have paid that for the food and drink alone without the teaching and recipe book we received and fun we had.
Would highly recommend to those in the area.
Tip- there are lots of cantina and retail outlets for wine and oil en route. Stop off for plenty of good local produce at great prices!

“A real leaarning experience and fun at the same time”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Fulvio and Katia are great teachers, we took the "advanced class" and made two different homemade pastas, two sauces, dessert, and the main course. Having cooked for years, I still learned a few new tricks and thoroughly enjoyed the time spent preparing, cooking, and then eating the products of our labor!!

“Great Class - holiday highlight”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We booked this class based on previous recommendations and were not disappointed. the six of us had a fantastic time - lots of fun laughs and food. We had 2 children with us a 3 and 11 year old and the class effortlessly incorporated them into it. Will never forget adults versus kids pasta making competition. Great food and experience with warm and hospitable hosts. Highly recommended.

Thanks again and I hope to meet you again for the advanced class!
