What our guests say

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say that our cooking class with Anna and Mari exceeded all of our expectations. They were beyond lovely, informative, and welcoming. Mari's English was perfecto for our purposes. She and Anna are very professional but so warm and inviting at the same time. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch with them. We will write a proper thank you note to them when we have recovered from travel lag, but in the meantime, please pass on our most humble thanks to Anna, and Mari!

Thanks for organizing the market walk and the cooking class. The Florence market is to die for. Barbara was fun and a good interpreter. Anna was sweet and enthusiastic. All the food we cooked was delicious.

Anna's Private Day Cooking Class in Florence Program

Your day of authentic Italian cooking begins when Anna will welcome you to her charming house immediately outside Florence's historic city center.  While Anna doesn't speak English, we'll provide an English interpreter for your private cooking lesson with Anna.  Your teacher for this delightful half-day foray into traditional Tuscan recipe-making adores cooking, and is a marvelous teacher as you will see.  Passionate and gifted in the world of culinary arts, she has found that enthusiasm and patient hands-on demonstrations perfectly transmit her precious knowledge to her eager students.  Her friendly, outgoing, English-speaking assistant will also be on hand during this amazing private cooking lesson to make sure no cooking tips or techniques are lost in translation.

Anna's recipes are based on the blending of two strong, timeless cuisines: Tuscan and Sicilian.  The key elements of authentic Tuscan cuisine are simplicity and freshness, while Sicilian cuisine draws from a wider, more exotic range of fresh ingredients.  Anna will help you chop, braise, boil, bake, roast, and simmer an entire Tuscan-focused meal during your wonderful day creating unforgettable dishes in her intimate Florence kitchen.  During this cooking lesson in Florence, you'll learn firsthand the difference the freshest ingredients make when preparing amazing dishes your friends and family will line up to taste when you recreate these new recipes in your own kitchen.

The cooking classes take place in Anna's charming home, an 18th-century house just outside the old Florence city walls.  This quiet residential neighborhood in the Tuscan hills overlooking Florence is an easy 10-minute bus or taxi ride from the Florence's historic city center.  Your hands-on half-day private cooking lesson will take place in Anna's small yet fully-equipped kitchen.  When the weather is nice, Anna will set the table in her beautiful little garden so you can enjoy the meal in the Tuscan sunshine.
