We had a great time cooking with Alessandra. We started the day with a coffee/pastry within Cortona, and talked about what we were going to cook that day. We then walked around Cortona to a couple different places and shopped for food and meats. Then we all got in Alessandra's van and drove down out of Cortona to buy fruits and vegetables. We then got to her house and started cooking. She demonstrated each part that we had to do, and then everyone got a chance to try making it. We made some delicious appetizers, ravioli, main meat course, and dessert. The whole time we got to talk with Alessandra about cooking, Italy, her family and anything in between. She was very friendly and spoke great English. We spent all day with her eating, drinking wine and cooking. It was a bit of a different experience for us because there were 4 people in the class cooking, and 2 of the people's husbands that were there to share to meal. Everyone was friendly but it might have felt different if everyone was involved in cooking, or it was only the people cooking. Overall loved to the food and immediately bought a pasta maker when we got home to make our own pasta! We were even able to replicate it which shows how much we learned that day.
