Homemade Cooking is the essence of Italian gastronomy

You can learn the Italian way of life as well as a cooking recipe. Florence is surrounded by nature’s bliss, rolling hills of grapes and wheat fields. Mother’s affections, people’s smiles, and tasteful food wait for unexpected guests at the dinner table. We are once again reminded that home cooking gives a place where friends and loved ones can give a blessing of life to each other. Home cooking doesn’t drive from state-of-art restaurant kitchens but is borne from regular kitchens in a regular home. Instructors wished students would use their own kitchens at home after they return home from lessons.
