Once you enroll, we’ll provide you with a fun and interactive online cooking class through Zoom. You’ll receive a confirmation email with the recipe, a detailed shopping list and the tools you need, the Zoom link. We will broadcast live from my home kitchen in Tuscany for a delicious experience. At the end of the class we’ll send you the video class replay that you can watch at your own convenience. Just click it and connect from wherever you are!

"The recipes Chicca guides us through via Zoom from her Tuscan farmhouse teaching simple and easy recipes! I would never have attempted to make gnocchi without her guidance. Now I feel confident to make it for my family. An afternoon spent cooking with Chicca always leads to a great day ~ and an outstanding meal!"
