Thank you for a wonderful experience! We are two parents and two young adult children. We were warmly greeted by our wonderful guide, Marina, who introduced us to Pietro and Dede, the chef's at Sale e Dede cooking school. We had fun learning to make the delicious recipes in the beautiful kitchen and then we enjoyed eating out on the spacious and comfortable patio. Marina, Pietro and Dede were all so nice and great to talk with. They shared their knowledge of Ligurian food and answered all our questions about life in Genoa. Overall, it was so enjoyable to have an interactive cultural experience that both generations could enjoy together

Our tour guide Marina was prompt, spoke excellent English and was very personable. The location of our cooking class was top notch! It was clean and modern. The two chefs were a tre delight. We learned how to make pasta, pesto, an appetizer and cookies! Prosecco flowed and we laughed a lot! A truly easy, fun and delightful experience. We went to boccadesse for gelato and aroma went above and beyond to make sure my mommy and me were happy. We felt like friends and not lie we had just met by days end. The correspondence with Do Better and the instructions were impeccable! Book your trip now!
