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 est une personne charmante et très accueillante et j’ai passé un excellent moment en sa compagnie. C’était une belle expérience. J’étais la seule participante et nous avons papoté, écouté de la musique et pris l’apéro en préparant les gnocchis comme avec une amie. N’hésitez pas à réserver un cours de cuisine avec Anna lorsque vous serez à Florence!!

I highly recommend this Airbnb cooking experience with Anna. We learned how to make delicious gnocchi with Ragu. Anna was thoughtful and kind. Her recipes were simple (& delicious) which was great for us as beginners. The recipes are something we can easily recreate at home. Anna is a talented artist and her husband is an incredible musician and we were lucky enough to look at the art in her studio and hear her husband play at the piano at the end of the night. If you are looking for a local cooking experience in Florence this is a great experience!
