This was by far our favorite thing we did in our entire Italy trip! The class was well organized, fun, and DELICIOUS!! My husband and I learned so much about how to make great pasta and sauces. We can’t wait to try the recipes at home.

I had such a wonderful time! As a solo traveler it was hard finding cooking classes that didn’t require 2 or more people to sign up in order to attend, so it was awesome to find one I could join! I adore cooking and all things Italian food and I would have to say, this class was perfect for cooks and non cooks alike.
