New appreciation of pasta

Learnt how to make pasta from raw ingredients to finished product. Also learnt to make a delicious ricotta & spinach filling for ravioli, a Ragu alla Bolognese and a topping for pasta alla Norma. Additionally we prepared Panna Cotta for desert. Our chef, Francesco, expertly guided us on techniques for preparing the fillings and sauces, passing on helpful tips to use at home. And the best part of the experience was in the eating all we had made.

Girls weekend in Florence

I participated in the cookery experience with 11 friends as part of a birthday celebration weekend in Florence. We found our tutor excellent & really helpful. We all throughly enjoyed making the pasta, gnocchi, sauces & tiramisu. We were given the recipes so we could try at home. The kitchens were very well equipped & spotlessly clean. The best part was eating it with a nice glass of red wine! The food tasted excellent. The whole experience is Highly recommended.

Poorly run

Very standard but what would have improved the experience was if the young man running it on the day introduced everyone to each other to create a good atmosphere because we were expected to work as a team. Overall I would not recommend this pasta tour to anyone.

Adela was our teacher and she was dynamic and engaging and very helpful with instructions. We each had flour and egg bowls to make our own dough balls and as a table we helped each other roll and press out the pasta. We also chopped all the veggies for the pastas and mashed the potatoes and rolled and cut the gnocchi. We got to know the other people in the class and we all ate together at the end. I did this class with my mom and we had a great time! .
