Love the landscape surrounding the school, the visit to the ricotta making place, the discussions on the table, the cooking, and the kitchen.
Learned lots of good cooking tips, enjoyed the camaraderie with the instructor and other students, and the meal was fantastic! Also appreciated receiving the recipes. This cooking school was our favorite thing to do and the highlight of our month-long stay in Italy!
It was all wonderful: the staff, the estate, the food & drink, the cooking lessons/experience, interacting with the visitors, the excursions/tours (breakfast with the shepherd) and not to mention the swimming pool...I felt thoroughly pampered: relaxed and rested. It was exactly what I needed. Memories to last a lifetime.
Care to be wined, dined & entertained: this is the place. I had a fabulous fun holiday...the food is scrumptiously good. The staff, I can't say enough wonderful things. They sparkled. You could tell they really loved what they were doing. I found the cooking school experience to be stimulating, exciting and rewarding. Well done Anna Tasca Lanza and thank you.
Thank you for an experience of a lifetime! I can’t wait to share my stories of the wonderful work that the team at Anna Tasca Lanza is doing for local artisans, women in art/culinary, history and hospitality, and lovers of Italian culture.
We stayed at the cooking school for 2 nights of a 17-day tour of Sicily. We had the loveliest conversations with these very interesting and knowledgeable women managing the school and accommodations. The food and wine were exactly what I had hoped for. Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer! We will be back!!!
