Giuseppe and Sandra welcome you into their magnificent kitchen fully equipped for an unforgettable cooking lesson of at least 6 hours. If the chef enjoys himself just as much as you do, he'll make it last (and the wine pour) even longer. This is the real deal. They don't do this to make a living out of it, but they... More

This was a highlight of our two week Rome to Milan driving tour. Giuseppe Castri, his wife Sandra and their translator Mike are lovely people, and the absolutely delicious dishes they prepared for us became the standard by which our other meals were measured (and very few even came close!). A great time was had by all - don't miss... More

Magici Sapori was the simply the most amazing experience. I have been to Italy many times & am a passionate fan of Italian food. I now know many new wonderful tips and techniques which has raised my technical ability in the kitchen to another level! Food was incredible, the wine delicious & the company wonderfully warm.

i have been cookery lessons at Magici Sapori twice, and both times have been wonderful experiences. Giuseppe and Sandra are great hosts; friendly and knowledgeable. Their passion for Tuscan cooking is contagious. On the most recent visit, my friends and I made and eat bruschetta, pasta, chicken and tiramisu. Everything was delicious, and all the more satisfying as we helped... More

During a recent trip to Italy, my family and friends joined Giuseppe and Sandra for a cooking class in Florence featuring traditional Tuscan and Florentine dishes. Without question, it was the best time we had during an outstanding vacation. We picked the dishes in advance and our hosts warmly welcomed us into their professional kitchen around 3 on a Saturday... More

Dear Giuseppe & Sandra, I want to thank you again for a most memorable evening in your cucina. We had a wonderful vacation but I think the highlight was the night of Cooking Magic with you. You made us feel so welcome, it was fun and we learned so much--kids and adults alike. Bless you that you are able to... More

A small group of us came to the school for an evening of cooking however we got much more than that. Not only did we learn many tricks and secrets about how to make wonderful traditional Italian dishes but we were highly entertained by our hosts who brought a wealth of stories and amusement to our evening. We had a... More

I can't say enough about this! We booked this based on a suggestion from our hotel, and it was beyond expectations. Giuseppe and Sandra were friendly, entertaining, and excellent cooks and teachers. We prepared a delicious 7 course meal, tasted some amazing cheeses and wines, and learned some helpful cooking tips during the class. If I ever make it back... More

Magici Sapori was, hands down, the best experience of our recent trip to Europe! We were booked into the pasta course from our B&B hosts, and were not entirely sure of what to expect. However, we could not have been more impressed! The hosts were so, so, so lovely and generous. We made four different types of pasta, while they... More

During a recent stay in Florence, I was fortunate enough to participate in 3 classes at the Magici Sapori Cookery School with Giuseppe Castri. I was told the classes would last for approximately four hours, however, often they lasted for much longer, during which time we worked as a team to prepare a delicious meal of an antipasto, primo, secondo,...
