In the lyrics of ‘Maria’ from the Sound of Music ‘Maria’s not an asset to the Abbey’, but by gosh Maria is an asset to the VRI. This is the second class I’ve attended that Maria has run & it was because Maria was running this class why I returned. Maria is an incredible teacher full of history, beautiful Italian stories, wonderful tips & patience. Always a wonderful time in the classes & I will be back. Ally

An outstanding experience from start to finish! I didn’t just learn how to make fettuccine carbonara & crostoli but rather came to understand the passion behind Italian cooking. It truly is an amazing way to spend 4 hours! Thank you Maria you will absolutely see me again in April for cannelloni & cannoli.

An amazing experience. I attended with my partner to learn Italian cooking like my family used to make, and I wanted to learn the skills and recipes to cook these dishes myself at home. I’ll definitely attend more classes in the future. Maria is the best teacher and a wonderful personality!
