Meet our famous and charismatic Chefs and learn how to cook a nice Tuscan meal in the heart of Florence!

Our classes are offered in our fascinating cooking school, which boasts a typical Tuscan setting with wonderful marble kitchen islands to cook on.

First step: little walk to the Central Market, grocery shopping! You will go shopping with the chefs at the central market picking up the ingredients for your lunch. You will meet the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens. You will learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients and taste local foods & wines!

After this fun experience you will reach our home-like professional location and you will start putting your hands on the ingredients to create your own meal, driven by the expert guidance of our Chefs.
Your menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available, but will usually be made of bruschetta, different kinds of fresh home-made pasta from scratch (i.e. tagliatelle and ravioli), sauces for the pasta, and a dessert.
And then you will obviously eat the meal you prepared yourself, accompanied with two glasses of a selection of Chianti wine.
As you will eat your own food, you’d better be an attentive student while the Chef is teaching! And finally get your Graduation Certificate!


ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A MORE INTIMATE CLASS? UPGRADE to our VIP COOKING CLASS IN TUSCANY, visit the Chianti wine region with its beautiful landscapes, see a Castle Cellar and cook with a small group (max 12) along with our Chef in a stunning location.
