Cooking Class

What an amazing day with Antonio. The whole experience is so personal - there are other cooking classes with more gadgetry (and entry price) on offer but we chose this one and thank god we did! You get involved in the whole experience from seeing the local produce, to being taught by a chef who who's so passionate about even, what I'm sure to him, is the simplest food. (Although I would hardly call the chicken liver pate simple!), and then to the wine and eating what you had all cooked together was the chocolate sprinkles on the Tiramisu! Don't think about it - just book yourself on and experience tips and tricks from a fantastic teacher! Thank you Antonio for an amazing experience we will not forget and we will use in our kitchen from now on!

Fun cooking and eating in Florence

We really enjoyed this cooking class with Antonio - he's very talented. Going to the markets to get the ingredients was a real highlight, and so were the truffle and aged balsamic vinegar tastings. I learned some really useful cooking techniques and tips. Loved that we sat down to enjoy the dishes with a glass of wine too! My husband isn't as much of a cooking fan as me but he really renjoyed his day.
