We had a fabulous time. At first we thought 5 hours was going to be too much but it was perfect. The activities were timed out just right. Our chef was amazing. He was very interesting and personable. I cant wait to recommend this to all of our friends.

Excellent night with a wonderful host. Debora gave us a taste of authentic Italian cooking, amazing atmosphere and a great cooking experience. Would strongly recommend for anyone wanting a fun night cooking and eating delicious foods.

Our home cook, Manuela was amazing. she was patient and kind and throughly explained the reason for each step of the cooking process. She had many wonderful drinks and snacks for us to munch on throughout our course.

Both Chefs were very knowledgeable and even more nice and helpful. They are patient with those who know nothing and can answer questions if you’ve made pizza dozens of times.

We had an evening tour in Brera/ Milan. The guide introduced the Italian food culture. Guide was excellent,delicious food and great company.
