My day visiting the Lucca shops and market and cooking with Carla was my best day in Lucca. She was very knowledgeable, a great cook, a patient teacher and a wonderful host. It was fantastic to be able to go into her home and cook with her. We did so much,a great ragu and home made pasta some amazing chicken liver pate, crostini and tiramisu to finish off. I also learnt a lot just in general conversation so if you do this experience ask questions. Carla treated me to some wonderful very cold Italian prosecco. I can certainly recommend an experience with Carla.
