Organizing cooking lessons to create an extraordinary experience is our bread and butter. And remember it’s not the recipe itself that is important, but the joy of staying together!
And when you taste your favorite dishes with an excellent glass of wine in front of a fireplace (in winter) or under a starry night (in summer), you will experience a sense of total fulfillment… only in that moment we will have achieved our aim, our “belief”.

Once in a lifetime experience! Tuscany is known for its recognizable Renaissance art and architecture, its wonderful wines, its verdant, dream-like landscapes flowing with olive groves and vineyards, its sinewy country roads an adventure for those who seek the less-travelled path. But it’s also about food — “a tavola” (come and eat). The charming couple of Elisa and Alessandro helped introduce our group not only to the joy of regional cooking but the fun of it. Through their patient instruction, help and humour, we learned how to make classic rosemary and herb-flavoured focaccia bread, grissini, the crisp, golden bread sticks that add crunch to a meal, and delicious pizza, starting from the ground up, with pure, basic ingredients. Making the dough is easy. Using our hands and fingers to round it into the perfect shape? Let’s just say we came away with a new appreciation of what it takes to be an expert in the iconic art of pizza-making. Later, we sat down to consume our creations, embellished by mounds of other flavourful Italian specialties Elisa and Alessandro had prepared themselves. Wine, beer and Pellegrino flowed, in generous quantities supplied by our hosts/instructors. Bursting at the seams, some of us still managed to find room for a classic dessert — a light, fluffy and favourable torta (cake) that topped off the meal to remember. Laughs, delicious food and non-stop fun — what a wonderful way to spend an evening with friends, in this beautiful country. Our party of 12 from Vancouver, Canada would recommend the service provided by Elisa and Alessandro in a heartbeat. They truly provided the “dolce” in our week of livin’ “la dolce vita” in Tuscany.

This is a nice alternative to going out to a restaurant and having a family meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and having Elisa and Allessandro as our guide to make and cook pasta was a bonus. They are both very kind and patient, and they made us all feel at home. What a joy to be welcomed to their home and kitchen.

Alessandro and Elisa were quick to respond to our last minute reservation. They shared all the information we needed right away. It was a lot of fun learning from them, in their nice kitchen, and sharing the meal with them. Would do it all over again any day

My husband and I had a blast at this cooking class! The instructional portion was informative and fun, but the best part was enjoying the food and wine afterward. They went above and beyond to prepare delicious appetizers and wine for us -- we almost didn't make it to our pasta course because we were so full :) Great food, fun and company - 10/10 recommend if you're looking for something more personable and authentic.
