Cooking class, dinner & Italian Opera

✨Winner of Airbnb Experiences award "The most unforgettable experience" ✨
My team and I will welcome you at one of the most beautiful Villas dating back to 1600, with a gorgeous view on 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 a flute awaits you for a toast with chilled Prosecco with a Italian sommelier before enjoying a delicious dinner based on what we have created during our cooking class.
As you finish your dinner you're treated with a truly unique, beautiful and intimate performance of the best Arias of Italian Opera by professional musicians. You will feel like invited to join an Italian family for one night.

Lucrezia gave us memorable moment. Her place is abot 30 minutes far from Firenze by car. It was so good to experience aaln old farm house in 1600's. Around her place there were vine yards and olive trees. Eventhough it was late winter we saw the beautiful almond blossoms. My family was very eager to take a picture. I could easily imagine how beautiful the spring and summer time. After welcome moka coffee we started to cook with her. She organization was very thoughtful and interesting. For about 3 hours we took a cooking lesson it was so good and joyful. All the recipes are from her grandmother, she said. After the cooking we enjoyed dinner. Lucrezia prepared local white wine and red wine. We loved dishes and wines. Everything was perfect. Perfecto! After the dinner we listened some piece of opera and some famous Italian traditionalsongs like O sole mio etc . It was first time to listen the songs with harp. My husband loves Italian opera. He was so happy to be there. My family won't foreget every moment. I strongly recommend you to experience such a incredible moment here.

What an amazing experience. We came to Italy for knowledge and creative inspiration. Wow, did Lucrezia's event deliver everything and more for us? A very timely, friendly transfer to a gorgeous 400-year-old villa set amidst the Tuscan countryside. Upon arrival, we were met by the warm and friendly Chef Matteo. His warm and very attentive personality, wonderful technical knowledge and a real sense of fun was thoroughly enjoyed. We enjoyed learning about Matteo's experience as well as the "tricks of the trade" to making pasta. I recall thinking it was like a dream - this beautiful and romantic country kitchen in Italy and here we were making pasta and making new friends. We sat to enjoy our dinner and were surprised by the very grand entrance of Chiara who proceeded to delight us with an amazing operatic performance. Now it really was like being in a dream! Not only is Chiara so talented but also so kind and lovely. During the night we were also personally met by Lucrezia as our host and her family. Such lovely, kind and generous people. We left the night and traveling back to Florence I was struck by just how wonderful was the experience and also just how the experience was even supercharged by a group of beautiful people sharing their passion with us. It genuinely was a convivial experience and is so highly recommended for a night never to forget. Great company, great wine, great food in an Italian Tuscan villa - indeed a dream! Thank you, Lucrezia and your beautiful team and family!

It is no wonder why this is an award winning Air BnB experience . Lucrezia and her team really know how to create a memorable moment. And that's why we were so interested in learning from this experience . As founders of our family food business , we realise how important it is to authentically engage your guests to give them an unforgettable experience . By attending this experience ,we wanted to gain inspiration on how we could improve our memorabilty in our clients eyes . Well Lucrezia gave us a masterclass. The attention to detail,was second to none. Responsiveness and follow up after booking was efficient and really friendly . Transfers were warm and welcoming and on time. The short transfer from Firenze through the Tuscan countryside was breathtaking ( even in winter). The warm greeting from Chef accompanied with a freshly poured Moka started the experience on the right foot. Chef Matteo's warmth set the tone for the evening as he introduced us to the true Tuscan farmhouse kitchen where we would learn some secrets of his craft . Lucrezia our wonderful host then joined us to introduce herself . We spoke with her about her , her family's food business heritage and why she created her business which was of paticular interest to us .Time flew so we returned to Matteo ( Chefs) guidance to prepare the food for the nights meal. The menu - Ravioli stuffed with spinach ( we made pasta from scratch ) , a chicken cacciatore ( the hunters staple) finished with an a tuscan apple crumble . We learnt about the ingredients first before we were "hands on " learning the technique of cooking our hearty meals . At the candlelit dinner table we were met with a Prosecco , and parmigiano reggiano topped with balsamic pearls. A great start to our meal. The fruits our work were then laid on the table for us to enjoy ...primi, secondi and of course dolci. After a very brief mysterious pause , music filled the dining room and signalled the start of our much anticipated performance by Chiara . The performance by this soprano with this Tuscan backdrop was so dramatic and enjoyable. It was like a movie. It was moving . It was our own personal Opera and we gave each piece Chiara sang her own a standing ovation. What a perfect way to end the evening. As we left we also met Lucrezia mother who was visiting on business and heard epic tales of businesses she steered . The fruit obviously doesn't fall far from the tree ! We also learned that Lucrezia took her team on a road trip to the US recently at the request of past clients. What a way to keep a connection . Lucrezia, thank you for a memorable evening and reminding us that in our businesses, it's people that make a difference !

A lovely, bucket list worthy experience. Learning to cook pasta in an ancient building in Tuscany, whilst drinking good wine and being serenaded by an opera singer is truly an unforgettable experience! Simply marvelous.

If you see this experience, BOOK IT NOW!!! This is truly a once in a lifetime experience. The food, wine, hospitality, and location were amazing...the opera at the end was transcendent. If you’re worried about the cost, think of it as a cooking class+incredible dinner+visiting a Tuscan villa+personal opera performance and you’ll see that it is well worth every penny. It was the highlight of our trip to Italy by far.

Breathtaking views from the family's villa on top of the Tuscan hills. Lovely interiors, the fireplace was particularly memorable given the rain outside. Food was good; was expecting a more unique Italian dessert but in all it was well presented. The opera, was of course the highlight. We were lucky to be with two other really nice guests from the US that night, and I think that added to the overall experience.
