"Ron & Kathy Strand"
We took the class “Cook Eat Italian” with Manuela La Spina in Florence, Italy. Absolutely wonderful experience from the first moment we stepped into her kitchen. Manuela is an incredible chef and a excellent teacher. She took the time to not only teach us the recipes, but to also give us the background and the history behind each dish we prepared. An overall fantastic experience, a wonderful lady and oh, the food was deliciously amazing. I would recommend her if you are on the Florence area.

"if you only do one cooking experience make it this"
My partner and I where traveling around Italy, we had booked the pizza and gelato making experience in Tuscany, and had also booked a pasta making class in Rome with another company, pizza and gelato was a far superior experience for same price! the skill, teaching, entertainment & value for money with the pizza and gelato class was by far superior to to our pasta making in rome, Luca is possibly the wittiest, funniest, person I have ever encountered, max is a real showman and is more entertaining than I could have ever expected from gelato making whilst still teaching The group to a High standard on how to prepare gelato with lots of excellent tips for serving authentic garnish. Luigi is humbly funny, engaging and entertaining, he made the skill of dough kneeding & stretching and both adding the fillings entertaining and engaging with lots of laughs and fired in the oven to utter perfection. Without a doubt the best pizza I’ve ever had. As a lecturer Myself can I just say I know how difficult it is to keep your audience engaged and interested- it is a wonderful testament to you all as teachers that you not only kept all our interest for 5 hours, but kept us all engaged and entertained all night too. lots of wine/beer flowing and we met some really lovely interesting people too. I can’t recommend this class highly enough, if you do only one class or excursion in Tuscany make it this, it will not dissapoint you. Despite a mix up with an email address mix up max went out of his way to get us the recipes too which is very much appreciated. We will be having our first go at pizza making ourselves at home today and will continue to “ cook and love with Luca “ everytime we make pizza for our friend and family.

This was the best cooking class that we have taken. It was all hands on from start to finish with expert advice throughout. Easy class with lots of inside tips. Three great dishes lots of fun and a few wines and even a bit of Italian language lesson. For historical tragics the class was held in a building that Michael Angelo lived in for 6 tears. Would certainly highly recommend this class.

What a great class! We had such a nice time preparing the dishes and interacting with a great group of participants. Chef Luca was lovely and very knowledgeable. The best part was eating the food we prepared and sharing it with new friends over bottles of Chianti!

Expertly coordinated Cooking Class with classy chefs! Isak and Carmela make a wonderful chef team blending Isak's USA West-Coast Chill stirred together with Carmela's fiery Italian enthusiasm! Quick trip through the famed San Lorenzo Market yielded the ingredients for a wonderful meal in which we all participated in preparing. The group was large, but we each had a hand in chopping, and stirring. The highlight was the chance for all of us to make fresh pasta and top it off with a personally designed Tiramisu! We enjoyed a complete meal overlooking the marvelous Tuscan countryside filled with olive trees and vegetable patches. A definite "do-over" but perhaps with a smaller group!
