Cooking class highlight of Florence vacation
Chad_M
, Aug 2022
This cooking class was the highlight of our a Florence vacation! Antonella and Paolo provided the most personal experience imaginable. She picked us up from Florence and drove us out to her bed and breakfast in the countryside. The home and landscape are breathtaking! This was technically a group class, but my wife and I were the only 2 registered for that day. We cooked an incredible 4 course meal using only fresh, in-season ingredients. Antonella personalizes every menu to the participants’ preference. We made zucchini & ricotta soufflé, handmade tagliatelle pasta with tomato basil sauce, sea bream with a bed of vegetables, and orange peel & fig biscotti. And Antonella gave us all the recipes so we can make everything at home! I would recommend this class to all my family and friends. Can’t wait to come back!

Amazing experience at a beautiful location

The cooking class with Antonella was amazing. We had such a fun time as a group and the property, with its beautiful views, was the perfect setting. We were sent the menu beforehand to ensure it looked good and to make sure there were no allergies in our group, which was a very nice approach. With Antonella's help and instructions, we were able to cook and enjoy a great meal, learn about Italian cuisine, and hang out with her lovely dogs. I highly recommend this experience and peaceful escape into the hills of Florence!

Truly a fabulous cooking experience. If you desire to have an authentic Italian Cooking experience, Antonella will guide you.. Our family spent a day of creating and enjoying a gourmet meal. All in a villa overlooking beautiful Florence. We are now at home-and growing our own herb garden! Thank you for teaching us to appreciate food the Italian way.

Dear Tammi and family, It was a pleasure for me to host you in my home and especially in my kitchen, thank you for having expressed your thoughts on the experience of the Cooking class will be very useful for future guests. Cultivate your garden and you will have good vegetables that you can cook in a healthy and natural way. With love Antonella

I am a travel agent and I sent my clients on this and as soon as they were done they messaged me and said they would 10/10 recommend this! It is so nice to hear positive feedback from clients. They absolutely loved this and said the food and service was amazing. They sent picks of the homemade Tiramisu they made and it looked fabulous!

I can’t say enough good things about our time with Antonella and Paolo! The cooking class was at their gorgeous bed and breakfast overlooking Fiesole, Florence, and the Tuscan landscape. Relaxing on the terrace and enjoying the view with a glass of wine was wonderful, but of course the highlight was learning to cook an authentic four course meal with all fresh ingredients. Antonella and Paolo were great teachers, and the meal was absolutely delicious! Plus, they sent us all the recipes after so we can recreate the meal at home. After telling them that we were looking to visit San Gimignano and Siena later on our trip, Antonella arranged to be our guide and took us on exactly the excursion we were hoping for! Despite some rain, it was another fantastic day. We will absolutely be visiting Antonella and Paolo the next time we’re in Italy.

Dear Caroline and Paola, I have no words to thank you too, I spent 2 days with you and it was a great experience for me too. I recommend you let your friends know about your dining experience, it will surely be well appreciated. I hope to have you again soon!Antonella and Paolo

This was one of our favorite experiences in Italy! Antonella and Paolo were incredible hosts and they have a beautiful home overlooking the countryside.

Fabulous day with Antonella & Paulo! Their property is beautiful & the views from their home are simply gorgeous! We had a great day making Tiramisu, homemade pasta, incredible zucchini soufflés & chicken. If you want an enjoyable day in the countryside learning to cook Italian dishes - I HIGHLY recommend this tour!!!

Most enjoyable day you can imagine with wonderful Italian food and hosts

I just can't say enough about this experience. Antonella and Paolo were just the ultimate hosts, instructors and, by the end of the class, our new Italian friends. My sister and I booked the class and Antonella was quick to create a pescatarian menu for us. The ingredients were fresh and we were able to cook along with them in the most perfect kitchen imaginable. When we were done, we enjoyed the beautiful view and wonderful meal with local wine and conversation. The property is also a bed and breakfast and the perfect place to stay if you want a little escape from Florence but to be close by. We can't wait to return for another class and hopefully a stay at the house! Shannon Poteat and Erin Miller

Great Experience - Highly Recommend
Greg_D
, Sep 2021
Our cooking class with Antonella at her home was an incredible experience. Antonella and her husband welcomed my wife and I into their beautiful home outside of Florence, and treated us if we were family. We had some time to relax, drink wine, and talk to them, but also spent a good deal of time in the kitchen learning Antonella's recipes (which she emailed to us afterwards). We will no doubt be using these recipes all the time. The meal that we made was delicious and it was enhanced by the amazing view from Antonella's patio at her home + knowing that we made it ourselves. I would recommend this class to anyone looking to explore outside of the generic tourist visit in Florence and get a much more fun and authentic experience. In our three week stay in Italy, this was surely one of the highlights!

Thanks Greg for the nice review you left, you expressed in the review the day we spent together, I like to receive people and make them feel part of the family, transmit the enthusiasm and passion that you feel when cooking and let them taste their dishes in the most beautiful place in the house ... the panoramic terrace! I am waiting for you ... in case you decide to return to our beautiful Florence! Antonella & Paolo

Delicious Respite from the City
EmmaStreet101
, Oct 2019
Antonella and Paolo were wonderful hosts and we would 100% recommend it to anyone. Getting out of Florence into the stunning outskirts turned into one of our favourite days. We were collected from the central train station which made it an easy excursion. Greeted by two lovely pups at the property we immediately felt at ease as we had a glass of wine offered to us. We made four delicious courses on the day which we ate out on the shaded terrace with the most amazing views over Tuscan hills with Florence in the distance. We were returned to the city centre at a convenient location and were so relaxed we were like jelly. Antonella will be sending us the recipes from the day and we will be recreating them! Thank you. Grazie mille. :) Emma and Sam.

FIRENZE PRIVATE COOKING CLASS - OUTSTANDING !!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Jim M
, Oct 2019
What a wonderful experience !! Class is held in a private villa, 20 minutes from the train station. The 200 year old villa is located in the hilly region with a spectacular view of the city. The hosts, Paulo and Antonella, are charming and accommodating. We were fortunate that only my wife and I were in attendance, however it would still be a lot of fun with more couples. The chef, Eduordo, was great ! He spoke excellent English, and his instruction was clear, concise, and entertaining. We made a four course meal from scratch, and were able to enjoy it on the terrace with a bottle of wine and a beautiful view of the vast landscape. Meal included, zucchini soufflé, fresh made pasta noodles, fresh tomato sauce, balsamic chicken over salad greens and fresh fruit, and tiramisu . Our favorite meal of our trip. We highly recommend this class - 10 STARS - also you keep the recipes so that you can impress your friends back home

 Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for your Super review, written with the heart and we are happy to have received it, I will soon send you other recipes to share with your friends. Antonella, Paolo a and Edoardo

Cooking with Antonella & Paolo

We were picked up at the train station in Florence and transported to a beautiful Italian villa 30 minutes away. It turns out, this is also a bed and breakfast in the countryside - LaPaggeria. Antonella and Paulo - the husband and wife owners of the B&B and cooking instructors, were both wonderful. The menu was selected by Antonella and was perfect - Bresaola and ricotta rolls over salad greens, ricotta & zucchini soufflé, homemade tagliatelle with fresh tomato and basil sauce, fillet of pork with plums, tiramisu and of course wine - we were in Italy after all. The view from the terrace where we ate our delicious lunch was spectacular. Planning to go back again, this time staying at the B&B, which also has a pool. I would definitely recommend this class to both experienced and novice cooks.

 Thank you for this wonderful review, I am very happy that you and your children have been good with us but above all with our kitchen, I hope in the future to be able to host you again in my B&B I wait for you! Antonella

Cocinando en la Toscana
john f
, Nov 2019
Fue una linda experiencia, no solo aprender a cocinar platos típicos de la Toscana, sino también compartir una tarde con personas tan encantadoras como Antonella y Paolo. Aprendimos sus trucos, compartimos unos vinos, disfrutamos de la hermosa vista que tiene la villa y quedamos felices con la experiencia vivida. Recomiendo esta experiencia al 100% y, si hubiera sabido que tienen en su casa un B&B, nos hubiéramos hospedado allí mismo.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Gracias John y Adriana. por su agradable comentario, espero que cocinen nuestras recetas, también pasamos un buen día en su compañía y esperamos volver a verlos algún día ... ¡tal vez delante de un buen plato! Gracias por estar con nosotros. Antonella
