Incredible Experience

I went with my wife and 2 friends and I am not really a foodie person but this was fantastic. I loved the food and am now ready to take on making pasta myself and the whole experience was over the top. The hosts are incredible and make you feel so comfortable and the view is to die for, incredible trip while in Florence and only about 30 minutes outside of the city but you feel as if it was hours on how beautiful the view was. Highly, highly recommend it!!!
Beautiful estate and experience

My husband and I booked this experience to get away from the hustle and bustle of Florence and loved every minute. The estate is located in a nearby town (Impruneta) and we took the CAP bus there from Florence (depart 9:40 - arrive 10:15) at a cost of 10 euro for the two of us. Margherita picked us up at the main square where the bus dropped us off and it was overall, really easy. From there just a 5 minute ride to the estate. There were 8 in our group and we started off with coffee/pastries and introductions. Next, we made tomato sauce, fresh pasta, focaccia, pepperonata, zucchini omelette, and chocolate cake. Veronica is very welcoming and we learned more in this class than several others we've taken at Florence and in the US. She has a passion for food and cooking that is undeniable, and it translates to make this experience beautiful. After the work and a few glasses of the family wine, we enjoyed the fruits of our labor with a relaxing lunch on the property and were free to walk around. Afterwards, Margherita drove us back to the main square and we hopped on the 4:15 bus back to Florence. I absolutely recommend this experience. For those who have taken other cooking courses, you might agree they tend to feel a bit commercial and like a production to get you out on time. This was the opposite - truly enjoyable and personal. We feel lucky to have met both Veronica and Margherita and our travel was richer because of this experience.

If traveling to Chianti, spending a day with Veronica and Margherita learning about classic Italian cooking is a MUST! My wife and I had an amazing experience from the minute we booked the class. Margherita personally called us to confirm our booking and explain where to meet for the day. We met her in the center of the quaint town and followed her to this gorgeous estate with picturesque views. We were warmly greeted by her mother, Veronica, with coffee and a delicious pastry while we chatted about the estate and the menu for the day. The class takes place in the kitchen of the guest house which is cozy and warmed with an open hearth fire place. Veronica explained each step thoroughly and let us be hands on in every dish we made. Her passion for cooking and food is so inspiring. It was so great to hear the secrets of great fresh Tuscan food, history of the estate, and fun facts about the regions in Italy. Once finished cooking, we were able to sit down in the sun room and enjoy the lunch we had prepared. Delicious does not even begin to explain how amazing everything was. My wife and I still reminisce about our trip to Italy and talk about how spending the day learning to cook was our favorite day on the trip. We have even made the dishes at home! If you love to cook, love Italian culture, or just want to eat the best meal you ever had in your life... then you must take a class with Veronica! It will be the highlight of your trip to Italy. We hope to come back and take another class in the future!
