Chef Giuseppe was absolutely wonderful. This cooking class is a “must do” if you are in Lucca. Shopping, cooking and dining in the chef’s home. The ultimate experience.

Best Cooking Class - Ever!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Extra Virgin cooking class in Lucca with Chef Giuseppe was hands down the best cooking class I’ve ever taken! From the details to the food to the Chef himself, it was a truly outstanding. I would categorize this cooking class as more of an experience than hands on cooking (i.e., no rolling out pasta dough from scratch) with Chef giving his expertise and tips along the way. All group members contribute to parts of the dish (preparing garnish, forming gnudi, cutting tomatoes). The cooking space and dining space are absolutely gorgeous. Overall, I would take this class again and again!

Best Cooking Class in Town
We had a great time with Giuseppe. He knows a lot about Italian cuisine and showed us how to prepare a three course meal. He also kept an eye on our wine glasses so they never got empty 😊 we had a lot of fun with the other participants and enjoyed the great food. The ambience was amazing as well.

Fantastic cooking school experience in Lucca
Everything about this experience was luxurious. It was 10 stars! Every detail was so well well thought out and executed. It was Fantastico!! Chef Guiseppe is very talented and personable. This was one of the best Cooking classes I have ever taken and also one of the best meals I have eaten. An amazing and incredible experience. I didn’t want it to end. Chef Guiseppe provided incredible value and delicious food. I loved going to market to purchase the ingredients and it was super cool to see inside his beautiful palazzo home.
Bravo Chef Guiseppe and Liz! I can’t wait to come back and experience your farm house cooking class with my group.
Many hugs and kisses!

Great cooking experience
We had a lovely day with Giuseppe. We made a last minute reservation which was handeled perfectly by his wife Liz. The day started with going to some shops. It was very interesting to hear all the information about the typical Italian/Lucca products. After this, we went to the beautiful home of Giuseppe. Just visiting his home in an old building in the centre of Lucca was a very nice experience. The table was set beautifully by his wife Liz. During the cooking Giuseppe let us taste different products and compare the flavors to let us learn all the differences within the products. Again he told us a lot about the products and the recipes. During the rest of our vacation we have had many moments remembering what he has said about certain foods and tried applying the information. The cooking itself was also very nice and easy because Giuseppe had already prepared all the ingredients. After the cooking we had a lovely lunch with the food we had prepared. It was really delicious and Giuseppe was a very lovely host and chef. The entire experience was very nice and I really recommend following Giuseppes class when in Lucca!

Best cooking class of our lives
Jun 2021
My girlfriend and I went into this cooking workshop with very high expectations and were still blown away by how good it was. You start off by walking through Lucca and visiting some awesome shops, while Guiseppe talks about food, Lucca and Toscana. Afterwards, we went to their place (which is absolutely beautifull and very nicely decorated) for the workshop. What follows is a delightfull mix of olive oil tasting, trying out local products and cooking together with the chef. We asked tons of questions about food, wine, cooking techniques,... which he gladly answered. His passion for cooking is very contaguous (corona joke). Of course the food was fantastic. Like close your eyes and appreciate life fantastic.

Absolute 10/10 would book again.

Favorite thing I did in Tuscany!
We did a lot of fun things in Tuscany. This was my favorite. Learned a lot, ate a lot, shopped at some amazing local places for ingredients, sipped on Prosecco and wine, cheese and olive tasting all while being led by a really charming and generous chef. Definitely recommend! Thank you Giuseppe!

Delicious food and great experiece!
Jun 2021
My wife and I joined Guiseppe for the class and had a fantastic time. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in exploring a new cuisine and having a unique Tuscan experience. The ingredients were fresh and the shops they came from authentic and historical, and the olive oil from Guiseppe's family recipe fantastic.

Before arriving, Liz and Guiseppe went out of their way to source a vegetarian cheese to meet our food preferences and arranged a vegetarian menu.

Throughout the cooking demonstration the presentation of every small ingredient and utensil was considered. Guiseppe taught us about the ingredients themselves and simple, yet delicious recipes that showcase the regional cuisine. He was friendly and engaging throughout. The cheese tasting with honey and jam was particularly unique and tasty!

Don’t miss it!!

This was our favorite cooking class we’ve done in Italy! Loved the start at the market and see where all the ingredients and the small shops in town. We had a small group just us and another couple from the UK. You could tell how well trained and professional Giuseppe is as a chef and we loved seeing an inside view of how he works in the kitchen. His apartment was a beautiful and unique setting and was also personalized for our group. Can’t forget about the delicious food and wine! It was spectacular! Thanks so much!
