We took a half-day cooking class at Lacando dei Molino outside of Cortona, Italy. We being myself, my husband, two grown daughters, two 13-year old-granddaughters and one significant other. It was WONDERFUL. Simone was not the chef. The chef was from El Falconiere, owned by the same couple who own Lacando dei Molino. Richard spoke quite good English, so no translator was needed. It was a very hands-on class, all of us were involved. The menu was delightful: stuffed zucchini flowers, hand-made pasta with fresh tomato sauce, veal tenderloin stuffed with an olive mixture, and a dessert with custard, pears and chocolate sauce. The wines were from the family vineyard and were delicious. The owner’s mother-in-law joined us for dinner which was a treat. We were given leftovers to take back to our villa. My husband and I have taken other cooking classes in Europe (2 in France, 1 other in Italy and 1 in Portuga). All have been delightful and all very different. I have to say this was one of the very best and I would recommend it to anyone.
