It was one of the best decisions of my life! I had so so so much fun and enjoyed it very much. Chef Maria is amazing, super friendly gives great instruction and makes this class an amazing experience. I will keep this memory forever. Can't wait to try the recipe at home now!

I had a wonderful time with Cristina. She is so helpful and kind and I learnt a lot! The kitchen is very clean and bright. I went by myself and there was only one other customer so it was almost a private lesson! It started at 10am and finished around 1.30pm. The food we made together was delicious and it was lovely to enjoy eating it all for lunch with a lovely glass of wine. It is definitely worth the money and a really fun and interesting way to learn about traditional meals from Verona.

This cooking class was excellent! My partner and I found our chef Cristina to be very friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth. She was very well organised and accommodating of any needs including taste preferences. The food we prepared was delicious and went down very nicely with a glass or two of wine.
