This was a terrific activity! Our group was only 4 people and we started with a tour of the San Lorenzo market. Walter was very knowledgeable and we got to taste various balsamic vinegars and truffle products. After the tour, we walked back to the kitchen and started cooking. We made bruschetta, fettucine with truffle sauce, meatloaf and panna cotta with strawberry sauce for dessert. Walter explained all the steps to us so it will be easy to make everything again. We also got a booklet with the recipes. I definitely recommend doing this!
