We enjoyed the class, the cooking tips and insights shared by Gianna. It was a good addition to visit the market together and learn about the local produce.
I would not recommend this for families with younger children. With knives and stovetops it is not safe for them and they are distracting to the other students.

My husband and I joined this kind of cooking lesson for the first time in foreign country. We were excited but at the same time, we were worried if we could catch up with the class. However, not only Maya and Gianna but also othe participants from all over the world were very kind and friendly. Every dish was delicious! Wine too! We had a great time with them! Thank you Maya and Gianna!

Lecce is a fabulous city but is made even better by Gianna, Maya and their cooking school.

We spent a fantastic day with them cooking a range of local bread based dishes (my wife works in this sector and wanted to learn more). The day was full of fun and learning and loved it.

We're already working on a way to get back to Lecce and top of the list is to come here again.

We loved it, thanks ladies.

It was a delight to meet Gianna and Maya and chat as we shopped with them for food in the market. After getting a sense of what we liked to eat,and deciding on a menu, we walked to their cooking school through the streets of Lecce and got to know two charming people who seemed so knowledgeable about food and :Puglia. We were excited to begin our lesson. We couldn't have been more pleased to learn the secrets of good tomato sauce, how not to cook onions and garlic and how to make pasta and get those orichette ears just right. We cooked vegetables, panna cotta and drank delicious wine. We talked and laughed and had a memorable experience. Not only was this valuable as a cooking lesson, but we had fun, learned some Italian and had a special meal.

What better way to immerse yourself in the culture of Puglia. Through Espressino Travel (also 5 star) we had 2 wonderful cooking experiences with Gianna and Maya. The Mother/daughter combo were outgoing, fun and informative. We learned to cook authentic foods from the region followed by a leisurely dinner of our own making. After the second night the ladies joined us for the dinner and we were treated to musicians and dancing afterward. Highly recommended
All I can say other than that is "Maya more wine"!
