    This was the most unprofessional and unsanitary experience we have ever had! Upon arrival, we were escorted into a cluttered apartment and asked if we minded that the host had two old dogs. Surprise! The dogs were big and constantly under our feet in the kitchen during prep. They were mangy and coughed and huffed throughout. Our host smoked adding to the discomfort. No sanitizer, hosts’ hair was not covered and bare hands used on pasta. Two very simple dishes that a child could handle. Dessert was a gelatin type pudding already prepared. On the bright side, the cook’s soon was a good translator. We would hv left but our driver had gone. We have requested a refund.

    Loved this cooking experience in Anna’s cute Italian/Sicilian home. Definitely ask for Anna and cooking at her home experience. It was such a lovely experience — gave us a great local feel. We learned how to make fish, pasta, pesto, peppers. Highly recommend! We had a great dinner after at her place!

    We followed the directions on our ticket and buzzed the apartment. We buzzed for 45 minutes but no one let us in. We are very disappointed as the class was a lot of money and we had been excited. I hope to hear of a refund.

    The host canceled, I was very upset because she had no option but to pay double, for two participants.

    Anna is an amazing teacher. She makes it all simple with a ‘can do’ attitude. She is also incredibly well educated and can tell you anything about her beloved Sicily

    Anna was the perfecthostess and teacher, welcoming us into her home and making the whole evening a memoranle one. She was not only a wonderful cook and teacher but very interesting and great company. We were taught how to make the most delicious fresh pasta, risotto and caponata. And then enjoyed it with wine and good company. Anna went the extra mile and gave us some wonderful recommendations for the next day when we visited Napoli. Thank you Anna for a wonderful evening.
