We booked this cooking class for a birthday trip to Florence, Italy earlier this month, and are so glad we did. Chris and Carmella were fantastic!!! Everything was exactly as listed on the La Vacanza Travel post- from the Mercato Centrale trip to the full-day cooking experience at the farmhouse (seamlessly organized and prompt). Chris and Carmella are extremely talented chefs and are SO much fun to learn from… such a perfect duo! They truly made our day in Tuscany an unforgettable one. Thank you again and we look forward to receiving the recipes via email so we can make this delicious meal at home!

If you are going to do anything in Florence CHOOSE THIS TOUR!!!! It was one of the highlights of our trip as we got to walk the streets of Florence with our lovely guide Olivia. She took us through the city to the locals market which was filled with meats, cheeses, breads, and all assortment of goods to pick out fresh ingredients for the meals that day. Upon driving to the villa (which is GORGEOUS!!!!!!) Carmilla was waiting for us with clapping and dancing and sining! She is a fantastic lively and energetic cook, speaking only Italian but still gets her point across with humor and pizzaz !!! This made the experience even more authentic and fun for the entire group which buy the end felt like a large family enjoying a traditional homemade Italian meal. Again I cannot say enough good things about this experience especially to anyone who wants to know how to make pasta from scratch, cooking techniques in the region for the sauce and appetizers and drink a generous amount of wine while you do it!!!!

This was a very enjoyable and memorable experience - started with a tour of the local markets to select produce, then a short trip to a near-by but very picturesque hillside villa with a well-equipped group kitchen. All seemed to enjoy making Italian foods (bruschetta, pork roast, past, panna cotta) over a few Chiantis. Highly recommend our guide Olivia and host / chef Carmella. This is worth a half-day of your time.

My son and I did this tour during our trip to Florence. It was the best thing we did. Going to the market was so fun. Gloria was an amazing guide and translator. Carmela taught us so much and was full of life, dancing and singing as she taught. I highly recommend this day. All the food we made was amazing and our group was great fun, too.
