Type "one day cooking class" in the text search box and you'll actually pull up 14 threads on this topic! One with some of the best feedback is:

I would love to do one of these myself....

Last Sept. we went to a cooking class offered by The Accidental Tourist, www.accidentaltourist.com. We had a great time. They picked us up in Florence, we first went on a winery tour and then to a country home to make ravioli & tagliatelle, which they then cooked and we ate at their dinner table. There were about 15 of us. Lots of wine to drink as we made the pasta. I would say not a serious cooking class, but a lot of fun and beautiful surroundings.

I used the Accidental Tourist group for several activities in Italy and found them to be excellent.

Four of us took a one day cooking class from a chef named Jeff Thickman in his home just outside of Florence in 2001--we saw a posting about him on an AOL site. Jeff is actually a Russian, raised in America, and living in Italy! His main gig now is doing state dinners around the world--but if you can catch him at home, you will be in heaven. It was incredible! We cooked, ate fabulous food, drank wonderful wine, spent over 4 hours with him cooking and learning so much about Tuscan food and customs. The lesson in balsamic vinegar, and tasting the 100year old stuff, was worth the price alone! You can contact him at [email protected], but like I said, he is often out of the country so you may not get a quick reply.

Do a search for divinacucina. Judy knows her way around Florence and the kitchen.
