Whether novice or experienced this was an enjoyable class. This is one you could take more than once to pick up better skills. Great people running this as well - very patient but kept the class moving along.

My daughter and I enjoyed our cooking class and getting to know the other people in the group. Our instructor was great and the food we ended up making was delicious! We even got to take home the recipes so we can impress our friends back in Texas.

My husband and I booked the course during our trip to Florence. We cook a lot at home, but picked up plenty of tips in the couple of hours of cooking. It was well organized and presented by Walter and his colleagues. A great way to get to know other travelers. Really enjoyed
