I'm a visual designer specializing in food photography. I love cooking and hosting friends in my home / studio! Making fresh pasta is almost a ritual for me. I cook since I was young because my father is a chef and he taught me many little secrets of Italian cuisine, with the help of my dear grandmother. My guests are always enthusiastic to share with me this unique experience, to be enjoyed together with other traditional dishes and a good glass of wine!

Where you'll be

We are we are in the center of Florence, in the most characteristic area where you can still find old craft shops. Our loft has a very ancient history. My house was obtained from a former convent of the 1400s and a wax factory for the Duomo of Florence. It still retains the characteristics of a typical Florentine farmhouse and living here is magical for me!

Francesca was a wonderful host and teacher! I knew pasta could be easy, but now have the confidence to do it on my own, AND teach my toddler the joy of making his own favorite meal. Such a great time and delicious meal!
