The whole experience was great. We didn’t use the dough we made though but only because it needs to rest for 24h, I would have loved to know how mine turned out though. I learned so much too about different flours. I wish they taught the gelato by hand because that might have made the experience so much more unique. Anyway, overall it was a good experience.

This was a GREAT experience! Pietro was phenomenal… and the food we made WOW… the best Tiramisu I have ever had! I thoroughly recommend it… you will learn how to make some awesome pasta dishes and super quick and easy Tiramisu… his home is very welcoming and I felt as if everyone there was a close friend!

Both Chefs were very knowledgeable and even more nice and helpful. They are patient with those who know nothing and can answer questions if you’ve made pizza dozens of times.

We had an evening tour in Brera/ Milan. The guide introduced the Italian food culture. Guide was excellent,delicious food and great company.

I cannot recommend this more! Stefano was wonderful - attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The wine and food were exceptional.
