This is a fantastic way to spend a day in Lucca! Chef Giuseppe was fun and kept everyone in our class engaged in preparing a delicious meal. The shopping trip was fairly quick and intended more to talk about Italian food and cooking. The actual class was held in his kitchen in his home, which itself was beautiful. While we sipped prosecco, Chef Giuseppe assigned each of us a task (dicing onions, whisking sauce, etc.) and explained what we were cooking. We tasted different types of olive oil and focaccia along the way. When all was done, we sat down at a large decorated table to enjoy our meal with different types of wine followed by dessert and coffee. The day ended right at 3 p.m. Definitely do this!

We were passing through Lucca on an Italian road trip, and a family member found this cooking course and decided to book four of us into this one day cooking course. This was definitely our highlight in Lucca and we put it on par with our previous holiday experience at Osteria Francesca 3 star Michelin restaurant!
There were 8 people on the course, with Giuseppe meeting us in a square before hand to take us round some local stores for fresh ingredients to cook with. After this we were taken to his beautiful home to prepare our lunch. With Proseco at the ready we were then taught about the local olive oils and cheeses along with tastings, and then it was onto preparing our lunch.
Lunch was served along side amazing wines; the food was fresh, tasty and light.
Giuseppe was welcoming, knowledgeable and professional; If you’re a foodie, I can’t recommend this experience enough! We had so much fun, amazing food and met some great like minded people.
Definitely worth the money!

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.
