Nonna and her helpers were amazing. The food we cooked together was delicious and the teaching was great! The setting was also wonderful - a farm and restaurant where many of the ingredients come from. I highly recommend this cooking class.

Based on the reviews of the cooking class with Nonna Ciana, we were very excited to attend. We may have encountered Nonna and crew on an off day, but the class was average and expensive for what you received. There were 15 of us which...More

Cooking class with Nonna Ciana is a must while staying in Tuscany. She gave us a great hands-on cultural experience we thoroughly enjoyed. The best part? You get to eat the wonderful dishes paired with wine from the vineyard.
