This cooking course was an amazing experience. Cinzia is a wonderful chef and an expert at vegan cooking. The food we cooked was delicious. The class felt so personal and she hand held us every step of the way. She also gave us excellent tips on substituting ingredients incase we don’t find them in our local grocery stores. Highly recommended. Will surely re book the class when I’m back in Florence.
