If I could give this experience 10 stars, I would. Every detail of the meal — from beginning to end — was perfection. Anna is an extremely talented host and taught us so much about the food, the wine, and vibrant culture of Florence. I’ve been to Italy many times and have honestly never had such a unique and fun experience. Highly recommend that you do this while you’re in the city, especially if you’re here with friends or family. Incredible!

Anna McNiel of Demetra Tours & Experiences!! (Demetria Hostaria)

Sarah and I "love" Florence and have been on many wine and gourmet food tours through various venues in Florence and many other Italian cities... "None compare" with the tasting and gourmet treats with presentation by Anna McNiel of Demetra Tours & Experiences!! Anna combines tourism and gastronomy -evidenced in a deep knowledge of the culinary arts and vitaculture- naturally focused on Tuscany with her cheeky Aussie demeanor beguiling first Sarah and I, but then our brother and sister in law the second night for the most pleasing experiences of our entire trip to Italy last week. Anna's "wing woman" Monica -Chef at the Demetria Hostaria is the personification of Tuscan charm and warmth. The only reason my score stands at "5" is because I am not able to rate to "10!" Don't miss this Tuscan tour de force on your next trip to Florence! Everyone deserves this experience!!! Treat yourselves!!

Immersive experience and a must do in Florence
Read More
Immersive is really the adjective to describe this. You arrive at the restaurant for 9 am to find Anna and Monica waiting for you with a smile. Take a 15 minute walk to Sant'Ambrogio market and let the experts take your through their favorite vegetable stalls to select the best ingredients for the upcoming meal. The first part of the experience isn't just a quick stop at the market but a thorough experience with non-stop background information on what we're buying, why, and how it will be used. The fun really starts back in the kitchen. Spend a couple of hours preparing the courses with Monica and Simone. This part is involved and will satisfy those who want to get their hands dirty in the kitchen. Monica walks you through every step and patiently guides you through the preparation process. She doesn't skip over critical elements and wants you to be involved in her passion. The fireworks come when you sit down to eat the dishes you prepared. They will taste delicious but you may be biased since you'll be so proud of your day's work. Could not think of a better way to spend a half day in Florence. A true 5 star experience.
