What to expect

Enjoy a full day cooking class in the Tuscan countryside, including a food tour through the historic center of Florence led by a local foodie guide: taste delicacies in the Florentine's favorite bakery and grocery stores to experience Tuscan food like a local and buy your ingredients in Florence's most vibrant food market.

First, discover Florence's historical food market where the locals do their daily shopping. Meet the bakers, the butchers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their fields. Their stalls are full of items such as fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, cured meats, balsamic vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and many other Italian food specialties. Shop for the ingredients to use in your cooking class and learn to choose the best seasonal products.

Then, at the beautiful farmhouse, start creating a complete menu, from appetizer to dessert, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, coming from the vegetable garden. Learn how to make real Italian fresh pasta by hand with freshly laid eggs and a traditional meat sauce! Prepare a classic bruschetta with fresh bread, homegrown tomatoes, and the farmhouse's own extra virgin olive oil; then take a break to enjoy your bruschetta with a glass of Chianti wine.

After the break, learn how to prepare traditional Tuscan roast pork, Arista and Tuscan roast potatoes using fresh herbs collected from around the farmhouse. At the end of your class, prepare a delightful Tiramisù!

At last, sit down and enjoy a wonderful meal: each course will be paired with a carefully selected wine to compliment the flavors of the food you have prepared. At the end of your meal, your driver will be waiting for you for a short drive back to Florence, so it's time to say "arrivederci", after an unforgettable experience in Tuscany.
