My friends and I spent a day with Alessandra while visiting Italy in 2014. She was a generous hostess and we had a wonderful day. This is authentic Italian life, was a really nice change from the touristy activities you get in the larger cities.

During our stay in Tuscany we chose to spend our last day doing a cooking class... This was so much more!! True to her description, we met Alessandra in a piazza in Cortona and grabbed cappuccino as we got to know each other and discuss the menu of the day. There were 4 in my group and we were joined...

My husband and sister-in-law spent the day shopping, cooking, and learning about Tuscan home cooking and Italian life in general with the wonderful Alessandra. My brother-in-law and I joined in the fun to eat the delicious meal they created. When we arrived the chefs were putting the final touches on the feast and we were happy to watch as they... More

My husband and I spent a month in Italy, and our last day was a cooking class with Alessandra. We could not have chosen a better way to end a memorable trip! Alessandra met us in Cortona and after a cappuccino and market visits for supplies, she drove us to her home which was built in the 1400's. This day... More

I am back to Allesandra's class for the second time in 5 years and brought 3 friends with me. We all loved it! I am not going to talk about the technical aspects of her class, but it goes without saying that Allesandra knows her stuff! What is more important to me is the overall experience. I have had the...

There were six in our group to enjoy her company, A perfect size, and were the most amazing group of people to meet. I came by myself and was very quickly made to... More

Wow. What great value!! Alissandra provided the best possible experience for us from a personal greeting and coffee in Piazza Signorella in Cortona to discuss OUR choice and selection of what we wanted to cook, to shopping in the locale for the ingredients to the final class. The best cooking class ever and hosted in a warm italian home Alissandra... More
