    I am not specifically vegetarian/vegan but the description of the class sounded so fantastic that I selected it from the ArtViva listing, and could not have been happier with my choice. Cinzia was an excellent chef and teacher, making it fun and easy to learn how to make an incredible meal of Italian handmade pasta, focaccia, and chocolate cakes. We used fresh tomatoes and herbs from her garden to make the simple but delicious tomato sauce, and she showed me how to make a super tasty vegan mayonnaise for dipping with the focaccia too. On top of the amazing meal, the peaceful setting of the Bed and Breakfast location with views over Florence was pristine. I love how she individualized the class to my preferences and was able to answer my questions. I highly recommend this experience through ArtViva!

    Cinzia was a perfect host and teacher. First you must enjoy the beautiful setting, relaxing then settle into her comfortable well stocked kitchen and be ready to learn. I appreciate the way she structured the food options around what I wanted to learn and my skills. She also took the time to show me some other vegan tips, some things to look for in selecting foods, and how to mix ingredients to get the most out of them.

    If you want an enjoyable way to learn with one of the best – do this class!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking experience. Cynthia was prepared for our arrival and we made tortellini, Tomato sauce and even a vegan chocolate cake for dessert. Cinzia explained each step carefully and send us the recipes afterwards so we could prepare these delicious dishes at home. We ate dinner in her front yard overlooking the hillside outside of Florence. Paired with some nice wine, the dishes were delicious. Would recommend highly.

    My husband and I had so much fun cooking and dining with Cinzia. Her recipes were absolutely delicious, and her teaching style was fun. The property itself is gorgeous. Highly recommend!

    YOU NEED TO DO THIS! The highlight of my time in Florence. Cinzia was a fabulous host, is an incredibly talented and knowledgable chef, and is just so lovely. Not only did we cook a delicious meal, but she gave me some great vegan recommendations for Florence. Cannot wait to get home and make this recipe for my family.

    Outstanding experience…would recommend for anyone interested in Vegan and/or Gluten Free Cooking. Cinzia was fantastic…very personable, knowledgeable and of course, an excellent cooking teacher. We had significant requests for an allergy free (vegan, gluten free, nut free, soy free) cooking experience, and she accommodated to our needs while still being able to cook a fabulous meal. Can’t say enough how wonderful the whole experience was for myself and my daughter. Definitely sign up for this class.

    Despite I’m italian I never had the chance to learn how to make homemade/handmade pasta. I think it is amazing that experiences like these can be found so that people can not only directly learn about culinary traditions but also approach plant based cuisine in a fun and positive way. I felt like home and eating our homemade food afterwards all together was the highlight of the experience. The location is absolutely breathtaking too and being so close to the centre of Florence makes it even better Even though I’m an Italian, I’ve never had the opportunity to learn how to make homemade pasta. I find it amazing that they also have experiences of this kind to give people the opportunity to learn something genuine and traditional, but also to get closer to the wonderful plant cuisine. I felt at home and having lunch together was a really great time to remember. The location is also very unique and the proximity to the center of Florence makes everything even more pleasant.
