Florencetown, creator of the most popular and entertaining cooking classes and Florence food tours, is proud to present Tuscany's ultimate and most exclusive hands-on culinary experience: the VIP Small-Group Cooking Masterclass & Food Tour. 

Discover Florence using your senses, dive into the local gastronomic heritage, taste mouth-watering traditional specialties, and master the art of Tuscan cooking! Meet your dedicated chef and follow him on a wondrous "Food Quest" through the charming streets of the historic Florence city center.

Talented and entertaining, he will lead you to the most picturesque traditional grocery shops, the ancient Florentine bottegas.
This is where the local gourmands and chefs do their shopping! Browse through the shops, losing yourself in the delectable aromas and sensational flavors.

Taste scrumptious specialties, enjoy the exclusive guidance offered by your professional chef, and choose the ingredients to use for your cooking class during your food tour of Florence, in Italy.

With groceries in hand, you will take a short walk to our cooking class facility, a delightful location in the city center. Aprons on! Follow your chef's skilled know-how and learn how to concoct the most exquisite traditional dishes: your menu will generally include home-made hand-rolled pasta, a tasty pasta sauce, a traditional main dish such as Eggplant Parmigiana and a typical dessert, too, like almond Tuscan cantuccini (typical Tuscan dry biscuits) to dip into sweet Vinsanto wine.

Master the art of kneading dough into fragrant homemade pasta, or roll out perfect potato Gnocchi, and get the hang of using a pestle to crush fresh basil and pine nuts into creamy flavorful extra-virgin olive oil Pesto! Measure, mince, mix and stir (and taste, of course, to get the seasonings right!), and finally sit down with a glass of excellent Tuscan wine to relish the best Tuscan meal ever: the one you made yourself, in the heart of historic Florence.

Perfect for gourmands, foodies, and taste-devotees in general, our signature VIP Small-Group Cooking Masterclass leads you straight into Tuscan gastronomic heaven, in a welcoming relaxed atmosphere and with the privilege of the personalized attention of a professional chef.
At the end of the experience receive a full Recipe Booklet, a superb souvenir that will allow you to share the delicious recipes you learned with your friends and family at home.
