For the class, your superstar instructor and chef will describe the how to choose the freshest local ingredients that you will cook later in the kitchen. For Italians, the cooking process begins not in the kitchen, but at the market. Learn why Italians traditionally shop each morning for the best breads, meats and produce.

Cooking Class in a Florentine Kitchen

From the market, take a short walk to our fully equipped kitchen where the class portion of the day will begin. Your Chef will demonstrate and teach the intricacies of each dish while helping your group each step along the way.

In this class you will create a full meal from Appetizer to Dessert, all made with local Tuscan products. The exact menu varies by time of year to provide the best dishes with in-season ingredients.

Though exact recipes vary slightly, the menu consists of an antipasto like a delicious bruschetta, a homemade pasta with an authentic Tuscan sauce, then a beautiful local dessert. After creating the dishes, enjoy your masterpieces with an amazing Tuscan wine.

Once home, you will be able to take out your booklet of recipes to show off the incredible cooking skills you picked up in Florence. Buon Appetito!

Who knew I could make pasta???

My daughter is studying abroad in Florence so we wanted to do something really cool when we visited her. This class was great and everything was delicious! So happy I can now make pasta, I'm going to impress everyone back home!
