This was my third trip to Italy and--by far--the best. In this often overlooked part of the country, you'll find authentic people, beautiful architecture, untouched scenery, and the most amazing food Italy has to offer. Cooking Experience with Gianna and Andrea was this trip personified! You couldn't hope for a better opportunity to spend a few hours with nicer people... More

Gianna and Andreas are very welcoming. The whole experience is well above our expectations. We shopped at a local product market, learned a lot along the way and then cooked eight dishes - all from scratch. Giana also advised where to find ingredients in USA. Everything was yummy. We ended the evening with wonderful conversation, fine wine, and the food... More

A fantastic hands-on cooking experience, including wine tasting and creation of typical Leccese dishes. Gianna and Alessandra were fantastic and gave us a taste of local life, much more than just a basic cooking class. Lunch itself was a highlight due to the relaxed curtain and atmosphere. A must-do if you are in Lecce!

This was a blast and we learned so much from Andrea and Gianna! Our first stop was a market for local produce, meat & cheeses followed by delicious local delicacy: iced coffee with almond milk...yummy!! The delicious food we prepared was paired with Puglian wines. Thank you Gianna and Andrea for a great experience!!

A fun and informative cooking experience with Arianna and Andre. Shopped for ingredients, stopped for a "cafe on the rocks" and then to the kitchen! We prepared a typical Sunday dinner and then feasted on our self made meal. Food seems to taste better when you make it yourself.
