I attended the month-long certificate masters class and it was absolutely amazing. We got to work with amazing chefs, learn tricks of modern kitchens (no stirring the risotto constantly!) and eat amazing food! The villa was absolutely gorgeous and our hosts were gracious and attentive. A wonderful experience that I'd recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic taste of Italy!

Be prepared to get messy and have a great time. This day class was so much fun, Maurizio our chef/teacher was a blast and what a cook! The class is as much hands on as you desire and if you decide to do hands on then you are going to have fun as the day simply wisks by with a smile and leaves you with so many fond memories. The class was such an inspiration for us and gave us so much confidence to cook what had learned in class such that we held an Itallian Mama Mia Thanksgiving Dinner at our home instead of Turkey dinner. I could not sing like Maurizio did for us but we did play a great Itallian music CD while we cooked and dined.
