    We planned this cooking class excursion months in advance and even made sure we stayed the night in La Spezia, the Newark of Cinque Terre, because of the several references in the description that it would take place at hosts home in La Spezia. Less than 48 hours before the time of the cooking class, we received an email that not only would the cooking class be moved up an hour earlier but that it would also be held in another town 40 miles away at a restaurant instead of the home. What was the deal? Did you need kitchen help under the guise of a "cooking class"?

    Francesco n family are amazing. We learnt how to make delectable focaccia bread a and pesto. It was an unforgettable lunch filled with great food, white wine and laughter.
