“best vacation ever- plans to go back aleady in the works”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2010
I found this cooking school on the internet and being a sceptic, I read every review written by media, individuals, and the owner. I talked to the owner several times before booking. I was unnerved, coming from Canada, to be asked to pay US funds, in order to attend a cooking school in Tuscany. Hoping that it was not a scam, I took the plunge and paid the final deposit within a month of even going. . All my fears were instantly quelled when we checked into our beautiful room within this quaint and stunning Italian villa. That night the fabulous reception meal with introductions to our 9 co-participants set the standard for what was to come. Our instructor Paola not only maintained a lively interactive and highly stimulating week of lessons that would reset our own view to cooking, but also left us with a yearning to return and repeat the whole experience over again. For anyone remotely interested in Italian cooking and its ambience, I highly recommend this course. The fact that I now cannot recall the cost speaks volumes to its value!
