We had a perfect day with Fiora. First, we went to the market where we bought the food for the cooking lesson. Fiora explained a lot regarding the fruits, vegetables, sea food, fish and herbs. At that point you already feel experienced by the Italian...More

Although it was probably the 1001 time for Fiora to have visitors for cooking, it felt like a first time for me - felt like improvising along, choosing the menu especially for us, and sitting along the table like old friends. Fiora is amazing, you...More
