Quel plaisir ce moment de partage et sans parler de votre accueil!

Dear Flavia, thank you so much for the wonderful cooking lesson and meal, and even better company. I learned so much about the history of timballo and other Italian cuisines - and picked up a few chef secrets! - and ate some incredible food... Time for a nap in Villa Borghese :)  What a wonderful afternoon spent meeting you and your family - a true Italian experience to end my time in Rome.

Grazie tanto! Wonderful class & experience to work with you in your home. I will surely be making gnocchi from now on and continue the tradition in Mexico. Muchas gracias!


Jason and I would like to thank you for sharing your joy with us today. The experience was priceless. The food was delicious and we both were amazed at how easy it was to make! Maybe I can cook after all!! Thank you for opening your home and cooking with us. It is always interesting to learn about cultures and families. Thank you again for everything. All the best

Thank you so much for a most wonderful three days of cooking (and eating) with you, we learned so many new things and enjoyed every minute. I hope we will be back again soon.

Today’s lesson has enhanced my Roman experience beyond expectation. I thank you for opening your home to my university and to me.

Thank you SO MUCH for this experience! I have a non found love for cooking. The food was FANTASTIC! Keep doing what you do - it is truly an art.

Your recipes and your lessons were superb, but your companionship and stories made the experience even more special! Please do visit us if you come to New York, to see how good we are as students of your hospitality!

A delightful evening with an inspirational cooking lesson, excellent food and scintillating conversation. I shall return home to Cumbria, UK determined to cook for myself the recipes that Flavia has demonstrated. Very many thanks.


Thank you for your inspiration, Flavia, and for such a civilized evening, with beautiful food and wines. You’ve given me the impetus to try out some new recipes.
