Hi, I'm Anna, an artist who lives in the historic center of Florence. I love art and food and accommodate people in my home / studio, located in one of the most fascinating sites of Oltrarno.
I have always dedicated myself to art and cooking, organizing art and food events, numerous exhibitions with a culinary connection. For me art is founded with the taste of traditional foods, riccette studied by our tradition revisited today without changing flavors. Over the years I have deepened everything on Mediterranean flavors by creating classes to convey my skills and the secrets of Italian cuisine

Anna is very friendly and made me feel very welcome in her home. The other guests were also quite friendly and we collaborated on making the ragu and gnocchi. Although I have made ragu many times before, I never tried making gnocchi. As we prepared the meal we shared wine, snacks, and learned about each other. Anna guided us through the process and in the end we finished with a delicious lunch. I enjoyed this experience very much.
