One of the best cooking classes! Lovely family. My husband and I had a wonderful time. We learned so much and took home some great techniques. During dinner, we felt that we were really part of the family. Our conversations were focused on Italian traditions and what it’s like to live in an Italian Village. Go on this tour!

Such a fantastic day spent with Antonietta and Monica who interpreted the lesson. From the very beginning, I felt like I was with new friends! The class was so interesting learning about how the recipes have been passed down may generations and how all of the ingredients are locally sourced--some even from her garden and her chickens! It was my first time making pasta from scratch and I've always wanted to learn, so it made it extra special to do it in Italy! I can't recommend this experience enough. it was a warm, wonderful day spent with lovely people learning about authentic Italian cooking. I look forward to going back to another class soon!

A truly delightful, informative, and memorable evening with very fun and interesting hosts. We felt like honored guests and learned lifelong culinary skills from people we now consider good friends. I give the experience 5 stars enthusiastically.

We had such an incredible time during our class. It was a highlight of our trip. We had so much fun getting to know Antonetta, she was a sweetheart and made us to feel at home, not to mention the incredible food!

From the moment we were greeted by Antonietta and her neighbor/translator, Lucrezia, the moment we parked our car, we felt as welcome as family at this magical semi-rural setting. Antonietta's husband, Piero, is an Italian cowboy who, in addition to maintaining a small on-property ranch with animals, gardens, and of course his horse, has created an environment for cooking and dining filled with Western artifacts and memorabilia. Very unique! We learned how to make fresh pasta and bruschetta, and enjoyed a hearty relaxed lunch with lots more (antipasti, soup, wine, dessert, coffee) while getting to know each other... and celebrate Piero's birthday! This was a wonderful experience that we heartily recommend to anyone interested in Italian culture and life.
