Italy Cooking School Tour Traveler’s Story

Jim and Maria, Virginia, USA

I don’t know how (she) Carmen could have made it any better. You can give it as many stars as you want.

We’ve been cooking her recipes at home and they taste just like with Carmen. The meals were simple and consistently good. We went to Carmen’s mum’s restaurant—wonderful.
