From start to finish Extra Virgin Cooking Class in Lucca was exceptional. We shopped for all the food and assisted in preparation and enjoyed an amazing meal with friends from Australia London and Denmark Many thanks to Giuseppe our teacher and chef.

Everything was wonderful, from booking to the class itself. We all had a great time being shown the local shops and then creating beautiful dishes with Guiseppe in his lovely home. The prosecco and wine didn't stop flowing and we took home very happy memories. Grazie, grazie!

Everything about this cooking class was first class. Giuseppe was a fabulous instructor and host. Liz responds with information very quickly. The class is conducted in their home which is absolutely beautiful. The cheese, bread, olive oil, wine food and table settings were an amazing experience. Don't miss the opportunity to take this class. It was the highlight of our trip to Lucca.

My sister-in-law booked us this class several months in advance and we were joined by 4 others for a group of 8. After meeting Chief Giuseppe, and our classmates, he toured us through Lucca. Stopping at local bakeries and produce markets, explaining what was available and purchasing fresh ingredients and breads for the meal we would prepare and eat. The class was conducted at his awesome home kitchen and served at an elegant dinning setting in his home. We learned about and tasted olive oils, cheeses, and of course wines, with ample amounts of each. We also prepared and ate a wonderful 3 course Italian meal. The entire tour, class and meal lasted about 6 hours but seemed like 2! We would recommend this class to anyone interested in Italian cuisine. Very professional, and informative. One of the best meals we enjoyed in our tour of Italy! Thanks Giuseppe!
