A good, relaxed cooking demonstration. It was like I had been invited into their house.

I always enjoy tours with Micky and Adry. They explain in details and they have so much patience with everyone (it must be not easy at all), and they are super fun. Cooking tours with them are easy to follow, fun, and super well organised. I'm impressed they prepared 3 focaccias for us, plus the ambiance, the nice mood, the music... it all added up to an enjoyable tour! Gratzie! :)
