It's hard to imagine better Italian food experience. Everything takes place in beautiful house with huge fantastic garden. Eleonora is a great chef, fully dedicated to her guests . Even though, everyone in our group lacked cooking skills, the food we prepared under Eleonora's eye was on the restaurant level and it was delicious. From now on only professional Italian cuisine in our own kitchens! Thanks to Achref's music and positive energy the evening was taken to whole new level. We would absolutely repeat it. Just to put it in numbers: food: 10/10 hospitality: 10/10 Hosts: 10/10 place: 10/10

My mom, sister and I had the most wonderful time with Eleonora & Achref! I cant say enough about these two. They were so accommodating and made us feel so welcome in their home. Eleonora is an outstanding chef and we can’t wait to use the skills she showed us back home. The food and wine were delicious! We ended the night with a private show from Achref himself. We were so moved by his music. Goosebumps! Words can’t describe how beautiful his music is. It was truly an experience we will never forget. We are so blessed to have met them both. Best night of our Italy girls trip for sure! ❤️

Eleonara and Achref provided a fabulous afternoon for my family. We had quite a large party yet they still were able to provide an inviting and intimate atmosphere. The food was delicious and the music was phenomenal. I would highly recommend this one of a kind experience.

Can I give 6 stars? What a memorable day with Eleonora and Achref! The venue is a wonderful house not too far from Florence. Both hosts are such wonderful people who excel in their respective professions but are passionate to bring both cookery and music together to create a truly memorable experience. We all bonded with both hosts and I couldn’t recommend this experience more highly. Would love to do this all over again!

Highly recommend this experience! Eleonora is truly an amazing and extremely knowledgeable chef! She opened up her heart and home to us, teaching us her own techniques on how to home-make pizza and pasta. She not only taught us about the food, but also about the local wine and olive oil. We spent the afternoon laughing, cooking, and learning (and of course eating our delicious food and drinking the yummy wine)! We ended our day by listening to a few local musicians who were truly fantastic. We can’t wait to do this again next time we’re in Florence!!
