Christina was fabulous! We created the most delicious meal! Risotto with fresh vegtables, pasta made from scratch and tiramisu! My husband and I were there with our 4 adult children and we had so much fun cookng and learning from our Chef! The recipies were simple, but she gave us such good directions and helpful hints so we can recreate the dishes at home. This was one of the highlights of our Italian holiday. It was a true authentic way to experience delicious italian culture.

This was such a well organised and informative class. Our host Cristina is a published chef and it was a privilege to learn from an expert. A small group meant that everyone participated. I definitely feel much more confident to attempt dishes I have previously found difficult. Thank you for a wonderful few hours cooking in Verona!

Absolutely loved the experience. Our host was so kind. She taught us so much, and the food was AMAZING!!! I would highly recommend.

It was wonderful. Carolyn took her time and we had to cook almost everything ourselves, that's where you learn the most.

This was a great hands-on experience to have while in Venice! Lots of fun!
