15eur now (previous reviewers paid 10), and totally worth it. Monia is a hoot and the class is a lot of fun. You will leave stuffed, buzzed, and with new friends! Kids are welcome (and our 7 year old was free).

This course was so much fun, and both the food and wine was very generous. The chef was informative and we learnt (and ate) lots. I would recommend this to anyone!

My teenage son and I took a one hour pesto making class. It was well organised and very informative. The staff offered us samples of olive oil, sardines, and other types of pesto. We loved it!
