This was a GREAT experience! Pietro was phenomenal… and the food we made WOW… the best Tiramisu I have ever had! I thoroughly recommend it… you will learn how to make some awesome pasta dishes and super quick and easy Tiramisu… his home is very welcoming and I felt as if everyone there was a close friend!

We had a fabulous time. At first we thought 5 hours was going to be too much but it was perfect. The activities were timed out just right. Our chef was amazing. He was very interesting and personable. I cant wait to recommend this to all of our friends.

My class size was 5. Very hands on. We made 2 different kinds of pasta, tiramisu and learned how to make risotto and a butter and sage sauce. The Chef was knowledgeable and personable. His recounting of his vast experiences took the class over the top.

Both Chefs were very knowledgeable and even more nice and helpful. They are patient with those who know nothing and can answer questions if you’ve made pizza dozens of times.

The experience is amazing. We had a great time, the tour in the market was fantastic.
