Christina was great! She took us through all her techniques for making a red wine risotto, pasta, pasta sauce and tiramisu. Then we all sat together to eat it all with a glass of wine. It was a lovely way to spend four hours and I learned where I was going wrong with my Italian cooking.

Christina was fabulous! We created the most delicious meal! Risotto with fresh vegtables, pasta made from scratch and tiramisu! My husband and I were there with our 4 adult children and we had so much fun cookng and learning from our Chef! The recipies were simple, but she gave us such good directions and helpful hints so we can recreate the dishes at home. This was one of the highlights of our Italian holiday. It was a true authentic way to experience delicious italian culture.

This was such a well organised and informative class. Our host Cristina is a published chef and it was a privilege to learn from an expert. A small group meant that everyone participated. I definitely feel much more confident to attempt dishes I have previously found difficult. Thank you for a wonderful few hours cooking in Verona!
