    The whole family really enjoyed this experience, everyone could participate and we all learned something new during the class. Our host made the evening fun, the finished product was delicious. Would recommend for couples or a family with older children.

    This was a great evening for my children and I who have varying levels of cooking ability. Fabrizio, the chef, was engaging, knowledgeable, entertaining and professional. The facility was a wonderful commercial kitchen with all the bells and whistles and when you were finished cooking and ready to dine, you moved to a very cool wine cellar that had been set by his assistant. The food was delicious and appealed to even the pickiest of my kids. Another family was in the group and the 5 teens became fast friends making it even more enjoyable. Best of all, we left with a booklet of all the recipes so that I can re-create this glimpse of Tuscany for my friends and family back home! If Rick Steves has not given a shout out to your company in his book, I might have missed out on one of the most fun nights of our trip of a lifetime!

    I highly recommend this Artiva cooking class. The chef/teacher was great! Enough of the food prep was done ahead of time to keep the class moving at a good pace, yet there was enough cooking for us to do that it felt like we really did make dinner. Cooking with a group of strangers immediately makes you friends. A wonderful experience!
