Overview
More
MaMa is a mother, the central figure that from the dawn of time has passed down generation to generation the culinary culture of her country or region. A mother feeds and nourishes her children, teaching them the intrinsic value in the act of nourishment. At MaMa one can learn during a class with home cooks and chefs of incredible skill and even international acclaim, but who all have one thing in common: they interweave their professional skill, knowledge and culture with the art of daily practice and desire to nourish with love. The warm, welcoming atmosphere of the school recreates the feeling of an informal and inviting home and hearth. It is a place to discover (or rediscover) the meaning and pleasure of two of the most simple yet important daily activities: cooking and eating.

Each of the dishes was incredible, and Chef Michelle is really nice and willing to help you out and answer questions. Would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to have a direct experience with Tuscan food and learn more about it!More
