As much as I loved the food and watching it being prepared in front of me, I think the part that I liked most was the lady herself. Sandra is clearly a lover of creativity and style and she shares a special intimacy with her participants that makes her lessons very real and honest. Attending a La Cucina Di Sandra cooking class is but a small invitation into Sandra’s world. Go visit the Italian lady in her beautiful Richmond home and get a taste of what REAL Italian cooking is all about. Thanks Sandra! Bree ( 

Before attending her class we had never met Sandra, but already we’re talking about how we can swing another trip to Melbourne. Sandra’s passion for Italy and generosity with her knowledge make this an experience worth travelling for. We drove eight hours from Adelaide to get to La Cucina di Sandra and it was indeed ‘vale la pena’ – worth the effort! Here’s all you need to know to book your own evening or buy a class for a friend. So go ahead – take a trip to Italy, if only for an evening. [Mary Louise (]

We learnt lots of interesting facts about different types of pastas and other produce and good shops to source quality ingredients. We really enjoyed the class and the delicious recipes will sure to be put on the family menu!

You're welcomed into La cucina di Sandra and seated at the breakfast bar, greeted with snacks and prosecco and the night just keeps getting better from there. I am an avid home cook and learnt so much about the Italian style of cooking, selection of ingredients and techniques. This alone would have made the price worthwhile - and then you get to eat it all! While this is not a hands on cooking class, Sandra is highly engaging and invites you to question the process while offering full explanations to every question I had. I genuinely look forward to my next course at La Cucina di Sandra

Brilliant! Sandra shares her extensive skills in Italian cooking using a clear and interactive approach. There is also plenty of interesting conversation with the group during the class where Sandra shares some stories and tips. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.
