We did the pasta making class in Rome and had so much fun that we had to sign up for the one in Florence. Needless to say, we were not disappointed! Lorenzo was amazing! He was so fun to cook with. It felt like we were old friends making dinner together. A bonus to the class is that the chef will give you recommendations for other places to eat around town. We will take this class again when we come to Florence. My wife and I know how to make pasta, but it's not about learning to make pasta, it's about spending time with others who care about good food and having a good time. Grazie mille, Gondoleta!
