    My husband and I loved the cooking class recipes so much, that when we got back to Brooklyn I made biscotti straight away. Luciano is a pleasure, his guinea hen is the best I’ve ever had, and it was a highlight of our trip. Glad we read about the discount through a travel book. The class would have been out of our price range without it!
