Your unforgettable

Sight, smell, sound,..and all your other senses will be awakened, leaving you with unforgettable memories. You will be welcomed at one of the most beautiful Villas dating back to 1600, with a gorgeous view of the Tuscan countryside, in the Chianti Classico region, a wine producing area globally known. We will start by tasting a cup of Italian style coffee made with a “moka”. After that I will guide you through the property, explaining the origins and cultivation of the seasonal and fresh ingredients we will use during the cooking class. We will learn how to prepare different kinds of homemade pasta from scratch and an Italian dessert according to the old traditions and recipes of my Grandmother. You will get to taste our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced by my family since three generations with 100% Coratina olives from Apulia. Then we will enjoy a delicious meal based on what we have created during our cooking class

Wow! This was an evening we will never forget. This was one of many experiences we had on our month long vacation in the area and it was absolutely the best one! Totally worth every penny! The host was excellent, the class was very fun and the opera was wonderful! Who knew a group of strangers could have so much fun together and leave as friends! The whole experience was 5 stars. I highly recommend this to everyone! It’s been almost 3 weeks and we are still taking about it! Thank you!

My husband and I did this while on our 2-week honeymoon in Italy. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Lucrezia was so friendly and helpful, the property was beautiful, the food we cooked was delicious, the wine was plentiful, and the opera singer was just phenomenal. What a way to spend our time in Tuscany. Highly recommend!

Opera in the KitchenThis was a wonderful event at so many levels. It gives the international traveler a way to connecting with fellow travelers from around the world in a comfortable, fun setting. Conversation flows easy as you prepare evening meal together under the guidance of an experienced chef, drink wine and eat together.Our group was interacting with one another as if they were old friends. This event made that possible in a unique way. The cooking class was top-notch, everyone on the team was polite and professional.After dinner we enjoyed wonderful opera selections accompanied by classical harpist.This event exceeded my expectations. It was very moving. I would highly recommend this anyone traveling in the area. Hats off to Lucrezia and her team.


We produce
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
since three generations

In our family we make our own Extra Virgin olive oil since 3 generations. In Apulia we are strong on Coratina cultivar, rarely you’ll see cultivar specified on the bottle, to make monocultivar requires more work because each cultivar will probably be ready at different moment.


It’s the gift of freedom to choose the favorite class and join us in every moment! Once you have booked, you will receive a voucher valid for 1 Month. Contact us to personalize it with a name, message or photo.
