One of the best experiences and highlights of our trip to Italy. Alina and her family and team at the farm were absolutely amazing. We will have these memories to last a lifetime. We even ordered a large case of oil to be sent home to us in the US. I highly recommend this to make your trip to Italy that much better. The grounds are beautiful and we learned 3 different dishes and a dessert. If I could give it 10 stars I would

What a fun experience! Alina was wonderful, talking us through everything and answering all our questions. The food was absolutely amazing! This was the highlight of our trip to Italy!

Grazie, thank you for loving our slow food oriented cooking experience!
Wonderful, Informative and Delicious

I think this was one of the best pasta making classes out there. The location was beautiful. We made 3 types of pasta, 3 sauces and Tiramisu. The class was very informative. I cook but this class taught me about the consistency of my dough and a lot of great tips on pasta making. It was also great for beginners. The food was delicious . It was nice to sit with others and enjoy a meal. The wine was plentiful....the olive oil superb. The team was great. Our instructor was so passionate and knowledgeable. I am now following her on her blog and just love her. You get what you pay for....this was worth every penny and then some. Do yourself a favor and find the time to enjoy life in Tuscany and go cooking :)
Pasta Cooking In Tuscany!!

What a Great Time we had learning to make pasta & Tiramisu ! Alina was a Wonderful & Very Patient Teacher! It was so much easier than we ever expected! Fun Group Class. Best Part was sharing Lunch together at the end & enjoying the Pasta we had made paired with Great Wine! The Tuscan Country Villa had a Nice Italian Rustic Farm House Kitchen! Perfect for Cooking!

A beautiful way to learn Tuscan cooking

A beautiful environment and a very warm host. We enjoyed the experience very much. Alina is a passionate cook who clearly loves the slow cook experiences, using traditional and organic ingredients. Her passion is highly infectious.
Wonderful cooking instructor and beautiful atmosphere!

Our cooking class with Alina was one of the highlights of our 17-day trip through Italy! We learned so much and had a wonderful time making pasta and tiramisu with our three children (and the rest of our class!) Would highly recommend as a special activity while in the area! We’d love to do another class with Alina sometime!
Wonder cooking adventure
Stevan_H, Sep 2022
Alina was the perfect host, so full of excitement about cooking, the historic villa and farm, and her olive oil. It was a wonderful experience and the time flew by. It is about 50 minutes drive from Siena. We learned several ways of making pasta and several recipes for serving. Her local wine topped off the experience. Really highly recommended
Fantastic!

It was a great experience in a beautiful setting with a wonderful teacher. We would do it again. Thanks for the experience!
Amazing Views, Amazing Instructor!

We had a wonderful time cooking with Alina in one of the most beautiful settings I've seen. I was with my 17 year old son and we learned to make different pastas, sauces and tiramisu. Alina is very knowledgeable, kind and a pure joy to be around. I HIGHLY recommend adding this to your bucket list. It was by far our favorite part of visiting Italy. One thing to note if you are not familiar with Italy - this is NOT in Siena! We mistakenly took a train to Siena only to find out we were over an hour away from where we needed to be. Needless to say, the cab ride was nearly as much as the class so don't make the same mistake! You will need to get off in Chiusi! Despite being an hour late and a bit frazzled upon arrival it was still absolutely worth it!
Best Experience in Italy

One of the best travel experiences of my life
AdrienneRivetti_J, Apr 2022
What an amazing afternoon we had with Alina! Literally one of the very best travel experiences I've ever had in my life. I brought my teenage daughter along with me. We are both vegetarian, which I mentioned in my booking. Alina accommodated us beautifully with several delicious pasta dishes. I come from an Italian family and have made a lot of homemade pasta in my life, but something about the way Alina does it made it seem so...easy. Remarkably simple and straightforward, but the results were frankly some of the best food I've ever eaten in Italy. EVER. We made spinach and ricotta gnudi, candy pasta filled with stracchino and pistachios, red wine pasta (what?!?), lemon parmesan spaghetti alla chitarra, and several simple but delicious sauces. These are usable, everyday recipes that we've already prepared for the rest of our family since we've been home. And all in the comfort of a real Italian home with a delightful teacher and super sweet black lab, Costantino. What a treasure you've found if you're considering this experience! If you book no other tour for your entire trip, book this one.
