AVAILABLE ON CHRISTMAS TIME! Enjoy the fantastic experience of learning our Chef's secrets on Italian cooking in an intimate and friendly atmosphere with this small-group cooking class, immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside!
First you take a little walk in the city center and visit Florence Farmers' Market and discover all its beautiful colors and authenticity, getting to know the butchers, bakers and farmers which Florentines buy their ingredients from.
In the comfort of our minivan, you will then reach our fascinating cooking location, at a noble villa in the Chianti countryside, outside of the busy and bustling city center, where you will have the opportunity to express your culinary art under the attentive guidance of the Chef.
You will be welcome by a beautiful and delicious tasting of typical Tuscan products and a wine of fresh Prosecco wine, after which you'll start getting your hands dirty with flour and all the other fresh ingredients, starting the actual hands-on cooking lesson.
The menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available, but among various other things it will usually include also two different types of home-made pasta from scratch (i.e. pappardelle and ravioli).
The class will end with a delicious lunch that will prove your improved skills in the kitchen, accompanied by tastings of different wines and a final typical Tuscan dessert wine.
Whether you are a beginner or an expert with the apron, this small-group cooking class will ensure a personalized experience and the maximum attention by the Chef while letting you enjoy a friendly company. It will let you learn recipes and secrets that you can bring home with you to surprise your friends with a true Italian meal!
And all of this in the enchanting Chianti countryside, home of the world-famous Chianti wine.
And, last but not least, get your Graduation Certificate!
