As soon as we both walked in we were warmly greeted by Marcella who runs the cooking school. The kitchen and room had an amazing feel and I couldn't wait... More

I traveled with a group of 20 to Italy & Greece in February 2017. The highlight of our visit to Florence, was spending a few hours with Marcella at her cooking school. First off, she explained the proper way to make pasta--the ingredients & how to work it in. Each of us were given our own bit of flour, and... More

After doing quite a bit of research on cooking schools and reading loads of TripAdvisor reviews, I decided to spend the afternoon with Marcella in a private cooking class. Before the class we exchanged several emails where she provided a list of dishes I could choose from, asked what foods I liked and what I wanted to focus on. I... More

Marcella provides an excellent experience for me, my wife, our 1& year old son and my mother in law, so it is great for all generations. We learned new cooking techniques and enjoyed eating the fruits of our labor. Marcella is an excellent teacher who makes it fun and easy.

Taking an authentic cooking class with Marcella is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. We arrived to a warm welcome and overview of the customized 3 course menu we previously selected for our cooking experience. Marcella was engaging, gracious and fun while ensuring our hands on experience with all preparations and techniques. Once our feast was ready, we sat... More

Our personal cooking class with Marcella was the highlight of our 18 day trip! She was incredible! To start, we were able to create a fully customized menu, which is so unique when it comes to a cooking school. With dietary restrictions and picky eaters, being able to create our own menu was a huge hit. We made bruschetta, pizza,... More

While my daughter already rated this school, I felt the need to do the same from a different perspective. Unlike my daughter and son-in-law, I have been married and cooking for many many years, and I too learned a lot from Marcella! She is an enthusiastic and fun instructor. She uses fresh and creative ingredients and the results were DELICIOUS!... More

This is a must do when in Florence! I did the cooking class with my husband and my mother as special day away from sight seeing. Marcella was so friendly and accommodating when choosing our menu for the class before arriving in Italy. All of the ingredients are so fresh just like every where in Italy. Dishes that we thought...

Great 1-on-1 experience in the kitchen with a master chef. Marcella was a great teacher and together we made a wonderful meal. I would recommend this class to serious foodies who are wanting to really dive into the Italian cuisine.
