What a great experience! We didn't stay here, but booked the cooking class for our first day in Tuscany. Although we had a car, it was a little tricky to find, but between Google maps and instructions over the phone from Fulvio, we arrived on time. It is set in a beautiful location with views to San Gimignano and surrounding olive groves and vineyards. There were 6 in the group (4 of us travelling together and another couple) and Katia was an absolute delight. Her command of English was excellent and she was both hospitable and tolerant of our limited skills. We cooked in the homely kitchen which made the experience even more authentic.
The recipes were so simple, but so tasty. We managed to make almost all of the dishes again in the week we stayed in Italy and have tried them again since we have come home. There was no pressure to perform, just a lot of laughing and eating and tasting the wines and cheeses to compliment the dishes we prepared. Katia pointed us to Fattoria San Donato where the wine came from and we visited this place twice during our stay! Outstanding.
Overall, this was one of my favourite activities in Tuscany. I would definitely recommend.
