Florence cooking classes chef Alain Liggia

The FOOD & WINE ACADEMY of FLORENCE is a company with the aim of teaching Tuscan traditions of Food & Wine through classes and operates also as a brand of Florencetown Tour Operator.
We launched the first Cooking Class in Florence, years ago, and now, with our own two Cooking Schools and after 50.000+ happy guests on all our classes, we can surely say that ours are the most popular high quality cooking classes available in Florence, recommended by all the best guidebooks and travel magazines and advisors (like Rick Steves, Lonely Planet, Time Out, Travel Channel, Ryanair Magazine and many more).

Alain, our executive chef, and our other great chefs, Davide, Alessio, Paula, Daniel, Giuseppe and Lorenzo, will open for you the doors of Italian and Tuscan traditions through the flavors of food and wine. We offer one day experiences, fun cooking classes for lunch and dinner. Fun and friendly atmosphere at our Cooking SCHOOL in the heart of Florence, right next to the Central Market, or more relaxed small-group options in the CHIANTI countryside, in the fascinating location of an ancient Villa.

Check out our tour proposals and choose the program that fits your needs. Combine the different tours to get a wider perspective on Italian cooking .
At the end of the cooking classes you will receive a Certificate of Proficiency, according to your results!
