    From the moment we were greeted by Enza we knew we were at the RIGHT place!!! Enza was so charming and welcoming. There were 6 of us and we all had a wonderful time. We learned while we enjoyed a delicious meal in her lovely home. This cooking class was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Would highly recommend Enza and the cooking experience.

    Great cooking class!
    Sebastian_R, Mar 2024
    Like visiting a friend and learning her recipes while helping with dinner. Great experience and instructor (Barbara). Pici, antipasti & wine were delish and I’m still enjoying my biscotti. Tip: Best if you have a car or group taxi since it’s a bit outside of the center, about $50 r/t.
    Fantastic experience in Enza’s home

    Excellent evening. It was the most genuine and immersive experience we had in our two weeks across Italy
    Amazing Patrizia!!
    Matthew_O, Oct 2023
    Our visit with Patrizia in Siena was totally amazing!! What a wonderful and welcoming hostess and an outstanding chef. I wont give away her recipes but we were all very impressed at the innovative (yet simple) dishes we prepared and everything was delicious. It was hard to leave as we were having so much fun. I can't recommend the Cesarine experience and specifically Patrizia enough. I only hope we can do it again and am glad that we have a method to stay in contact to help us prepare the dishes at home.
    Fun and food in Siena

    This was a wonderful experience. It is a must do when visiting Siena. Meeting Patrizia and her translator Antonina was like meeting new friends. We shared laughter and cooking lessons as we learned about each other. We enjoyed our product together as we shared a meal and made friends. A highlight of the trip.
    Siena hospitality and cuisine at its finest
    Tay_M, Apr 2023
    We had a thoroughly enjoyable time at Patrizia's home. She was an excellent cook and the pasta dinner and dessert were remarkable. She was very hospitable and friendly. We also appreciated her friend that did translation into English. That was very helpful. Overall this was a fantastic experience we will always remember
    Incredible Experience
    Cameron_P, Nov 2022
    One of the most fun and creative experiences we’ve ever had on any vacation! Barbara is AWESOME! My wife and I bonded with her from the moment we arrived at her lovely Tuscan home. She shared the fresh family olive oil which had literally been pressed 2 days prior to our arrival. Such a treat! The fresh taste was unlike any olive oil I’ve ever had. We would HIGHLY recommend this experience during a visit to Siena.
