Hello everyone!
I'm Stefano, 36 year old Florentine man who live for work reasons between Finland and Italy since 10 years.
In this period I should have been in Finland, but being in Italy at the time of lockdown made me unable to leave, so I found myself trapped at home with my mom Daniela :)
The obligation to spend time together and our passion for cooking has encouraged us together to launch this experience.
We love to meet people from all over the world with whom to share our knowledges.
Im really proud of my Florentine roots, and our goal is to make my guests live a real Local experience.

This was such a wonderful and fun experience for the whole family. We had 8 people and a four year old and we all had such a great time! Steffano and his mother were wonderful hosts and taught us how to make delicious homemade Italian pasta! I am so glad we decided to do this and was most likely the highlight of every one's trip. Thank you to Steffano and his mother for providing us with an amazing memory!

What an incredible time spent with Stefano and his mom learning to cook. Stefano picked us up and took us to the home which was very charming. The food we made was excellent. Lovely people. Highly recommend it.

This was the type of experience I was looking for. A peek into the life of a typical Italian. Mother/son pair gave a fantastic class. Stephano’s ragu sauce was out of this world and Mama Daniella’s tortellini was deelish! Stephano even picked me up from a meeting point. Thank you.
