Giuseppina is a sensational gem! We were met by her gracious hospitality and the day only continued to get better. The class format was cook, drink, eat, repeat through the four traditional Italian food courses. We all learned old world and contemporary methods...laughed, shared and learned. The food was Fabulous!!

An unforgettable day of truffle hunting, eating and wine tasting. From the moment we set out to find truffles until our last sip of wine, the hospitality of Luca, Giuseppina and Luigi was unparalleled. The food and wine were also exquisite!

Thank you both for a wonderful and fun filled lesson on Tuscan cooking. The international mix of the 8 participants added to a great day. Upon arriving home, we've already applied some of your instruction and enjoyed every bit. For those who wish to take a cooking class, I highly recommend this one.
