I just finished a 3-day course with Elena and was blown away by the depth of culinary education that Elena provides as well as her hospitality. I feel privileged to have learned some of her cherished family recipes and had so much fun eating my way through Tuscan culture. If you are visiting Florence and a food lover, this needs to be at the top of your list.

Chef Elena's course has made us feel as though we have found the soul of Tuscany. Her class the perfect mixture of hands on cooking and tips only known by true Italian chefs. Elena and Jean made us feel at home immediately. Their warmth made us feel like family. Each class is then followed by a delectable 3-course meal that we prepared ourselves. We have had so much fun and gained so much knowledge. We can't wait to go home and share a piece of Tuscany with our friends and family. We can't say enough great things about this course. We will come back for sure!!

Dear Elena and Jean, thank you very much! It was a perfect combination. Learning for few days 1:1 with a top chef, in a home-like, authentic, in the same time professional setting in the middle of Florence. We enjoyed one of the best risottos, tiramisu, meatloaf and much more. And we made all that ourselves with little help and a number of tips from Elena along the way. Apart from the few new Tuscan recipes we took home tips and skills that one cannot find in the books or on the web. We love cooking and we love doing that together - now even more! August, 2014

Damion Ortega, Tim Trotter, Jean-Marc Vanot and Don Crabtree enjoyed a fabulous cooking lesson with Elena ( and Jean). It was a wonderful opportunity to learn and enjoy traditional Tuscan flavors in an intimate and relaxing environment. The beautiful ingredients and delicious dishes were only surpassed by the lively and gracious company.

Elena is an expert chef who opened her beautiful home to us and enhanced our understanding of Tuscan cooking, technique, a range of dishes from risotto to beef and chicken to unique desserts to the region. Liver has never tasted so good in an appetizer! We did a lot of research on cooking schools and found Cucina con Vista through a premier cooking magazine. This experience exceeded our expectations and sbatte we had read in the reviews. Elena and her trans latino assistant has a sense of humor and are friendly -- making cooking fun for the serious cook and novice. We recommend Elena without reservation. We hope to return presto- vero soon. Grazie tante, Elena. Diana & Tom, Minnesota, USA

we loved all the courses. And we also really enjoyed chatting with Elena , especially during the lunch. Our experience was fantastic and we highly recommend it to anyone who asks, and we already have!!! I liked that Elena tried to get us to do the tasks quicker in order to get all the food ready at the same time. It was one of the most enjoyable times during our honeymoon!
