Irene was a lovely instructor! It was a warm experience getting to learn about Sardinian cooking in such an authentic way. I booked this as a birthday surprise for my husband, and he absolutely loved it. Irene even had a small present for him for his birthday. She also gave us some other helpful food recommendations for the rest of our visit in Sardinia. Cannot recommend this experience more!

Such a fun and incredible experience learning to make traditional Sardinian pasta. Felt very authentic and everyone was SO nice. I loved that they also offered pick up and drop off to/from my hotel. All of the other members of the group were so nice and we all had a little lunch after. Would 100% recommend :)

Irene and Gabriele are very welcoming hosts. We learnt how to make a variety of different pasta and then they cooked up a delicious meal for us with produce from their garden. Grazie mille.
