I love food and I cook with passion and respect. Cooking isn't difficult, you just have to do it with joy.
The fondest memories of my childhood are linked to food.
Still today, I remember the penne with tomato that I used to eat at Nursery School, the onions from my aunt Rosina's vegetable patch which we used to eat with vinaigrette, my mum's crostini with patè, picnics with the whole family and the milk and biscuits which my father used to prepare for me every morning.
I've always enjoyed learning anything, but cooking particularly interested me so what else could I do? Cook!

We had a fantastic experience cooking and eating with Maria and her husband. We cooked 2 different pasta dishes and a traditional ragu along with tiramisu for dessert. After cooking we got to enjoy the wonderful dishes along with wine. Definitely recommend highly.

You will learn a lot in a short time, so be ready! This was great experience in a beautiful location. The hosts are so welcoming, so knowledgeable and so dedicated to sharing their experiences of Tuscan cooking. Made ragu my first day back home, and it was almost as good... Ok not really, but still ;)

De kook workshop was zat goed in elkaar en de recepten werden op papier gedeeld. Cristina heeft passie voor het koken. De locatie is ook zeer mooi. Een aanrader.

Fantastic class with Cristina and Giuseppe - and a special thanks for making it vegetarian for me! We learned so much and had a brilliant time doing so. All the other reviews are right - the tiramisu is amazing!!

Quelle expérience extraordinaire! Maria Cristina est une passionnée et nous transmet cette passion avec un magnifique sourire avec l’aide de son cuistot et mari, Giuseppe. Elle nous a surtout démontré qu’il n’y avait rien de compliqué et que tous pouvaient cuisiner toscan...dans la qualité et la fraîcheur des ingrédients, sans artifice. Et que dire du cadre dans lequel nous étions: cuisine de toute beauté et décor extérieur à couper le souffle. Bref, je recommande cette expérience à tous ceux et celles qui veulent vivre pleinement la Toscane!
