What an incredible day we spent with Chef Giuseppe! He started with shopping at some local markets and giving a history of cooking and foods of the region. We then went to his fabulous home to prepare an amazing luncheon. It was an experience of a lifetime. A beautiful setting, fantastic food, making new friends....how does a day get any bettering! Truly a treasure in Lucca. Don’t miss this.

My wife, daughter and I had the most wonderful time with couples from Finland, Denmark and UK. Chef Giuseppe took us on a walking tour to shop for bread, focaccia, and veggies. Then put us to work in his beautiful kitchen. Cheese, EVOO tasting, salad, pastas and dessert. Then sat down and dine on the beautifully set dinning table with wine. All terrific and Chef was informative and fun. We love Lucca and will plan on taking this course again on our next trip.

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.
