This is the best cooking experience I have ever had (of many) because the mother/daughter duo are kind, patient and authentic. We learned a lot, had a lot of laughs, and left fully dated and inspired to make our dishes at home. No pretension here; just good, home cookin. Thank you for a memorable evening!

I had the pleasure of taking a class with Gianna and her wonderful daughter Maya. Both are very special people! The food we cooked was delicious, the conversation was great and the wine was fantastic. Gianna knows more about wine than anyone! Gianna and Maya are perfection! If you don't book an experience with them you're crazy!!!

We booked this class during our stay in Lecce in January 2016. I must say the class was great, first we met Maya & Gianna in town center then went to a local supermarket to buy our fresh ingredients. When cooking we learnt a lot about how to cook good Italian food. I am a vegetarian and both Maya and... More

Now meet Maya, Gianna's beautiful and bright daughter who has a perfect command of the English language. Together they are quite the team. Start your day wandering markets, tasting and smelling. Next, it is... More

This was my third trip to Italy and--by far--the best. In this often overlooked part of the country, you'll find authentic people, beautiful architecture, untouched scenery, and the most amazing food Italy has to offer. Cooking Experience with Gianna and Andrea was this trip personified! You couldn't hope for a better opportunity to spend a few hours with nicer people... More

Gianna and Andreas are very welcoming. The whole experience is well above our expectations. We shopped at a local product market, learned a lot along the way and then cooked eight dishes - all from scratch. Giana also advised where to find ingredients in USA. Everything was yummy. We ended the evening with wonderful conversation, fine wine, and the food... More
