Our cooking class with Giacomo and his wife Cristiana was amazing! The food and wine pairings were absolutely delicious and we learned about the proper technique to make Tuscan dishes at home! Giancomo uses only local ingredients - organic and fresh! We had a lovely time and would highly recommend this class to anyone wanting an educational, fun and absolutely delicious experience! Grazie Giancomo!

Cooking with Giacomo & Cristiana
Lori_G, Oct 2023
We had the best time cooking with Giacomo & Cristiana. They were very generous to welcome us into their beautiful home to teach us how to cook his grandmother’s delicious recipes. It was nice to meet them and also their lovely daughter- they all welcomed us and made us feel included into their family. Such an amazing experience and treasured memory. Also, the food was the best we have had along our travels. Armin & Lori
A Tuscan culinary delight !
Kate_N, Sep 2023
We had a fabulous cooking class led by Giacomo and supported by Cristiana and Maria. It was a highlight of our time in Tuscany and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking to learn to cook some incredible Italian dishes with key tips and tools from a passionate chef. Excellent value for money !
Everything I expected and so much more

An excellent class. Learned so many great tips and techniques. Can’t wait to test what we learned when we return to the Stares. I give it five stars
Learn to cook pasta with ease!
Henry_M, Jul 2023
This was an excellent class. The teacher is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about cooking and shared not only his recipes, but also many tricks of the trade that could be generalized to any type of cooking. We left the class feeling very capable of creating a five-course meal at home. And the food was delicious! (And plenty of it!). I have taken a number of cooking classes but I learned skills today which I will remember and be able to use for entertaining with style. I went to the class having no idea how to make pasta and sauces, but now I am confident I can cook both for friends and family. I highly recommend this class.

Great Tuscan Cooking Class
Deborah_L, Jul 2022
A tremendous experience. I’ve been a quasi amateur Italian-American cook for 60 years. Cutting garlic at age 6. I learned more technical skills from Giacomo and Cristina in 5 hours than in years. In preparing a 5 course meal from scratch we learned how to select ingredients, use our knives to slice pappardelle and properly whisk eggs. Despite the high technical class level, you could be a non cook and still enjoy. Plus, the Caggioles are gracious and charming.
Fun and informative

Learned a lot about organic Italian cooking. And we made some great food and enjoyed the company. Chef was somewhat opinionated
