Delicious pizza recipe
Wallace Evans, 10/2019
We made pizza. Real Italian pizza. Then we ate it and it was DELICIOUS! Loved this cooking course, now that I know the authentic recipe I can do it at home for my Sunday family meeting! Amazing experience!

Chef simpatico e molto accogliente, ci siamo sentiti come nella cucina di casa nostra! Finalmente ci hanno svelato la ricetta della pizza, la rifaccio spesso a casa! Ottimo anche il gelato, da rifare la prossima estate! Un bel modo per rilassarsi e godersi le vacanze conoscendo altri viaggiatori.
Fabulous food experience!

Amazing pizza, gelato and sorbetto, well taught & explained but Chef Walter. We had a great time with our two teens, but really it would suit singles, couples & groups alike. We met very nice people which was all part of the experience. I highly recommend this class while in Florence!
