“Making gnocchi was my personal highlight of the day as I’d never made it before. I learnt some great ideas and lifelong skills that I’ll be able to replicate in my everyday cooking, including how to produce the perfect tomato sauce.”

“We finished the day sitting down as a group with wine and Prosecco, ready to taste the delicious five-course meal we had helped prepare.

Giancarlo joined us and continued to share his passion for Italy and Tuscan cooking, he really is a warm and welcoming man who put everyone at ease.

In conclusion, I thought it was a fantastic day, full of laughs and great food!”
