    Absolutely amazing local cooking experience! Learning how to make pasta with a sweet Italian grandma was a memory we will not forget. Highly recommend this cooking class to anyone considering it. It takes place in their beautiful home on their Italian cowboy ranch property. Everything is local and extremely fresh, you will not leave hungry!

    This cooking class was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Not only did we learn how to make pasta, but we had a delightful Italian feast with our hosts. Antonietta and her crew were a sheer delight and we felt like family by the time we left her home four and half hours later. I am recommending this experience to all my friends and hope to go back for another class in the years ahead.

    The friendly and warm welcome we received from the family of Antonietta was an icing to the sumptuous Tuscan cuisine she taught and help us prepared.

    This cooking experience was one of the highlights of our trip. It was great to actually cook in the host (Antonietta)'s home in a traditional atmosphere where we learnt to make pasta by hand under her careful guidance and then sit down to a 3 course meal with wine which included the pasta we had made. There were 9 of us and it really felt like we were having a lunch with friends.

    This particular evening served to be our most favorable during the two week trip to Italy. The location is fantastic. The hospitality is genuine and we just couldn’t rave enough about this experience. If we could rate it higher than a “5”, it would be a solid “10”.

    Don’t miss out!

    We loved learning how to make pasta and visiting with our hostess. Our hostess could not have been any nicer. She was lovely!!

    My friend and I had a great time at our cooking lesson near Lucca. It was a family affair and we thoroughly enjoyed making pasta and then having lunch with the family.

    We were hosted by Antonieta and Pietro. They were an absolute joy. So welcoming. Our translator Luchresia was so nice also. We did our cooking class and then had a wonderful meal. We truly felt like we were one of the family. I would definately recommend this experience.
