laughing with your hands stuffed into the dough
beside the grumbling pot,

People Experiences

The cooking class with Liliana, Elana and Marco was my favorite part of our trip to Tuscany!  I learned so much!  The best part of this experience was coming away with new friends in Italy.   Liliana made all of us feel like her family.  She brings such a warm and loving approach to a cooking class.   I highly recommend Liliana to anyone looking for a complete cooking experience (and a forever friend!).

A group of 20 from the USA rented a villa in Tuscany for two weeks in September 2022. I was the planner for the trip and connected with Liliana through a Facebook page several months before the date of the trip to inquire about her services for cooking us dinner the evening of our arrival and subsequently a cooking class at the Villa at a later date.Liliana was so responsive to my every question and concern, including planning the menu, attending to travelers food allergies and all of the logistics that come with the services. At the last minute, only days before our arrival we had a glitch that left us arriving early but no way to have lunch. Liliana immediately solved the issue by coming early and preparing a delicious light lunch for the wary travelers.Dinner thst evening was delicious as well. Liliana and her staff Elena and Marco were a joy, completely in control of the cooking, the service and the cleanup. On the last day of our vacation, Liliana and her staff came back to the Villa for a cooking class. Such a fun day and a special memory of this vacation. We learned to make Pumpkin flan w Parmesan cream sauce, Picci pasta with tomato garlic sauce, eggplant parmigiana and apple cake. Liliana is a wonderful teacher and the food was delicious.
I would highly recommend Liliana to cook for your group and also to teach you to make some her delicious recipes. Thank you Liliana, Elena and Marco for adding something special to our vacation in Tuscany.

El mejor curso taller para el alma, de pasta y cocina italiana, así describo el aprendizaje con Liliana, fue un día lleno de sabores y aromas nuevos, lleno de lecciones para la vida, que se traducían en un sentimiento de hogar, entre risas y llanto (al picar cebolla) Liliana nos explica qué, hacer pasta es una forma de terapia, picar cebolla es la cura para quien no puede expresar su llanto, cocinar es el mayor acto de amor que alguien le puede dar a otra persona, y de ahí que aprender con ella, sea tan catártico, nos muestra su pasión y amor por la cocina, y es en este momento cuando la alquimia de los aromas, texturas y sabores toma forma.
Cabe mencionar que soy Méxicano y he quedado maravillado con lo fragante que son las especies en Italia, su albaca o basilico, tiene notas de canela, menta, y albaca, de otra dimensión esta experiencia, pero a eso le sumamos el buen manejo de las harinas para volverlas pastas, y la magia propia del fuego, terminaremos probando y cocinando, la mejor pasta.
Tengo solo buenos recuerdos de este día, si pueden tomar sus cursos o probar la cocina de Liliana, les garantizo no solo comerán rico, comerán amor.


We so value Liliana when she comes to cook with us and our guests in Tuscany.  She is an absolute delight and coped well with our guests ‘banter’and different skill levels, imparting her knowledge and passion for the ingredients and processes we were using, with generosity and obvious joy.   After our discussion of dietary needs for the group of 10, Liliana thoughtfully prepared an extensive menu for us all to enjoy – so everybody felt included.  Seasonal produce has been the star of our cooking sessions – including herbs and greens from Liliana’s own garden, creating wonderful pasta and sauces that were moped with our own bread, up by hunger eaters. 

With her happy smile, It is always a pleasure to have her company at our property and we look forward to the next time … my mouth is watering already!
