The whole experince of the agritouismo stay, afternoon excusions and cooking classes was great. For a solo traveller this was the way to do it. The classes are hands on, but relaxed and take place in her home and family kitchen.

The cooking class was enjoyable, interesting, and informative. Certainly recommend taking one of Raffaella's classes!
