TESTIMONIALS OF SOME OF OUR STUDENTS:

- "Chef Lalla shows how to prepare real italian food. It is fun to cook with her and she has a good sense of humor. You will also learn about choosing the right ingredients. At the end you enjoy the meal together and learned also some new expressions in italian! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

- "Cucinare con Lalla è stata una ottima sensazione! Ho imparato come si fa le tagliatelle, la carne e le verdure. Tutti i piatti della cucina italiana, in tutto il mondo. Lalla è una persona speciale! Brava cuoca e simpatica. è divertente! Una esperienza che tutti dovrebbero fare"

- "Un corso che vale la pena dall'inizio alla fine e che ha superato di gran lunga le mie aspettative. Non immaginavo che la cuoca fosse così professionale e la qualità dei piatti così alta. Gli studenti hanno la possibilità di preparare tanti piatti toscani curati fin dal minimo dettaglio. Dopo questi squisiti piatti si mangiano in un ambiente piacevole e divertente.
è un corso stupendo con una cuoca con un grande cuore. Lo consiglio a tutti!"

                                       

Though I only spent one week here I was taught and accompanied throughout the entire time. The teachers are not just nice. They are excellent in their teaching skills and have mercifully a lot of patience. I would be happy to come back anytime to continue my lessons.
