We had a great cooking class at the school. The food was delicious and we enjoyed learning how to make pasta by hand. Definitely recommend this fun experience!

Menu Will Be Used for Christmas Dinner
Nov 2019
I booked this class for my daughter and son in law. Both have an interest in cooking and I wanted them to try something different and have them travel to Siena. I will say, they both throughly enjoyed it. My son in law absolutely loved it. Since retiring from Italy, they have made the soup twice that was prepared in the class and will create the whole menu for their Christmas dinner. Great class !!!

Informative and Tasty Time
Oct 2019
My daughter and I enjoyed the history about the food and the opportunity to learn some new cooking techniques. We had a small group (6 total) so we all were able to participate, learn about each other and talk about Sienna, our travels, and taste some great food.

Food, Fun, and Fabulous People

We thoroughly enjoyed this cooking class with Lella. We had a great group of people which made it fun. Got some hands on experience with making rustic pasta, a simple but delicious sauce, pork tenderloin (with OMG potatoes!) and pannecotta for dessert. Lella does not speak English, but her passion for cooking comes shining through, and her delightful interpreter made sure we understood what was going on. The workspace is professional and immaculate. The best part was sitting down with our new acquaintances and enjoying the fruits of our labor (with red wine)! Would highly recommend.

So much fun and delicious too!
Oct 2019
My husband and I went with our two adult children and enjoyed it very much. Lella had a large group in the main kitchen and our smaller group of 8 met in a smaller room with Francesco. He led us through preparing a menu of pannecotta, bread and tomato soup, pici and roasted pork with potatoes. It was our best dinner the whole trip and I am cautiously optimistic that I will be able to recreate the meal at home. Francesco was a great instructor who always encouraged us and helped feel confident in our skills.

Great way to spend 4 hours if you like fun and good food!
Oct 2019
My daughter and I had a delightful time cooking with Francesco and Lella. The kitchen was immaculate, the class informative and fun. It was one of the main highlights of our trip to Italy. The food was awesome and recipes ones we hopefully can replicate. We would both definitely recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Siena - you won't regret it!

brilliant experience ending with superb meal
Oct 2019
Brilliant experience and worth every penny. If you are thinking of doing it I would advise you to jump at the chance. I would describe it as a cookery demonstration from an expert chef and much, much more namely audience participation by everyone making the pasta, individuals helping the chef at various stages, and most importantly ending, in our case, with a superb, incredibly tasty, genuine, 4 course Tuscan meal prepared brilliantly. All of this was brought to life by a friendly, and very professional interpreter. The meal alone would have been worth the price. Our chef Francesco took us on the journey and his English was perfect meaning he could understand our questions. He chose to answer in Italian in which he had greater confidence to provide his detailed explanations. When the interpreter Julie, who is originally from Newcastle, spoke it was as if we were listening to the chef himself. You won’t be cooking every course but I think that makes this much better because, as I said, it is the best cookery demonstration in which I have ever been involved and results in a high class meal to end a fun four hours.

Fun group class, delicious local dishes!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Pro: Large portions of regional dishes with local ingredients, hands on experience with making fresh pasta, provided with recipes, 4 hour class perfect length, instructors & chef personable & friendly, answered questions with patience

Con: Less hands-on with other dishes, one shared stovetop/oven with the rest of the class

All in all, one of the best experiences I had in Tuscany! Definitely worth the price, just come hungry!
