We booked this cookingclass for my husband's birthday and it was great. The cooking with Elena and her mother in law was so much fun and the food turned out amazing! Even in times of Corona we always felt safe. The house and the surroundings are very beautiful and it is definitely worth the visit. Elena and her whole family were great.
