Antonietta made us feel welcome. We made bruschetta, tiramusi and pasta together. She doesn't speak English, so there was a translator. When we were done cooking, we had a really nice dinner together with her family and some friends. It was special, because we were invited in her family's home and to be surrounded with Italians. It was a nice local experience and the food was good.

We had a wonderful cooking experience. It was such much fun learning the Italian cooking style, even though we don’t speak proper Italian. The translator did a great job and we will remember this evening for our life. Thank you!

It was a great spontaneous class to do with our friends in Florence. Additionally they took the proper precautions during this time. Everything was clean and disinfected.
