Ciao Laura Cooking classes

We are thinking of doing the one week cooking vacation. Has anyone been there? Do you recommend it or another one? Thanks!

I'm almost certain the one-week cooking vacation is this:

Ciao Laura calls it something else, adds a few inexpensive bells and whistles and a hefty mark-up.

Ciao Laura is not associated with these organizations which Zerlina clearly is being paid to promote or is friends with on some level. This is the exact problem with trip advisor and the ability of someone to attack a hard working organization with absolutely no recourse for their actions. To say that Ciao Laura is connected with a company that it is not and that it charges hefty mark up fees is slanderous and unjustified when it is 100% false and quite the opposite. In fact to the best of their knowledge, no one from Montreal named Zerlina has ever done business with Ciao Laura and therefore, they are not qualified to give an opinion in the first place.

Laura has a great agency and offers really nice cooking classes. I have had the pleasure of working with her for the filming of a Canadian TV Show and it has been a real pleasure. She is professional and the classes she offers seemed very authentic to me as a local. I would recommend it to a friend. But of course the offer is wide in Tuscany, so you might want to look at more than one option.

Ciao Laura does not offer cooking classes; it *resells* cooking classes organized by other operators.

It is physically impossible for a company based according to its Web site in Nashville, TN, to give its own daily or weekly cooking classes in locations throughout Italy.

And what is *your* reason for posting? Only two posts and both promoting Ciao Laura.

If you do a search, you will find that I have mentioned Tuscan Women Cook *once* in 15,291 posts. If your slanderous attack were true, my "commissions" would not pay for bread and water, let alone an Internet connection.
