My adult daughter and I loved this class! It was one of our trip highlights. Barbara is wonderful and an excellent teacher. She is patient and explained everything so well it was a joy to work with her. The two pastas and the tiramisu were fun to make and so delicious. We will definitely be trying it ourselves at home! I would recommend this for all age groups and all levels of cooking experience. Thank you Barbara!!

It was a wonderful evening, and a very good evening! The course is family friendly and easy to do… The atmosphere is there, and even more… with great encounters! We overstayed but that was no problem as it was a very nice evening…we wished we could have gone on and on…a real local welcome…

This class was so fun! Barbara was so great—the instruction and the food were outstanding! I would do this class with her every time I came to Montepulciano!

Truly enjoyed our pasta, gnocchi, & tiramisu cooking lesson! Barbara was a wonderful teacher and we loved her beautiful home & chef’s kitchen.

Great experience about Italian culture and cuisine. We highly recommend!
