A truly memorable and unique experience! Shopping beforehand, then preparing a 5-course gourmet meal under the watchful but friendly instruction of Chef Luca in a professional but warm kitchen space. And everything was, of course, delicious!

It was 11 years since we did our first cooking lesson with Fabiolous in Mazzano Romano. Today we did a repeat lesson with Roy and Tamara. It was just as informative and lovely. It is nice to get out of the city and visit a market to pick up fresh food supplies and head to a magnificent country home to start the lesson.
