I've been wanting to learn to make pizzelle for a very long time. They are so beautiful and fancy, yet light. I have always bought the store kind but I know the homemade ones are better. I took Francesca's baking class because I knew we would make these. With her instructions, I learned the proper method for making these delicious cookies. I'm so excited at how easy they were to make! While we learned to make four cookies in class, all which I will repeat at home, the pizzelle alone were worth it!

Ciao! I've had the pleasure of attending 2 classes with Francesca. She knows her stuff. Her classes are fun and low key. She teaches simple recipes that enabled me to go home and cook Italian food. Having been to Italy twice and a student of Italian, that is amazing. One class was in her home, which gave us an opportunity to really learn how to make all the dishes and enjoy them together Italian style, with wine of course. I've used some of the skills she taught in other recipes. And now I make risotto, from scratch, stirring constantly. My family and my Thanksgiving celebration were very pleased with this new skill. Francesca has a simple cannoli recipe that I am looking forward to trying. I look forward to taking her Italian cooking tours to Italy in the coming years. Perfetto!

The Italian cooking class was a fun way to spend time with my boyfriend, making delicious pasta dishes. We're avid cooks, but we still learned some new tricks and learned how to prepare an ingredient we hadn't cooked with before!"

I thoroughly enjoyed the “All About Pasta” class with Francesca Montillo. It was interactive, fun and easy. I have used the recipes since taking the class, and they are some of my favorites.

Francesca's cooking class was an expected delight. I have taken classes, but none so comfortable, delicious, and simple to repeat at home. I am a dedicated follower of Francesca and her true Italian everyday recipes that make me long for my ancestors and their love of family and home.
