From the company that launched the first and most popular Cooking Class in Florence, a VIP small-group hands-on experience that will immerse you in the scents, tastes and secrets of Italian Cuisine, letting you also discover where Florentines buy their authentic gourmet Tuscan products and ingredients.
Following our professional and passionate Chef, stroll through the old town discovering the fascinating authentic historic Bottegas where you will learn about and taste some gourmet typical Tuscan products, as well as buying some of the freshest ingredients you will need for the recipes in your cooking class. This includes visiting Bottegas in Oltrarno, the most authentic district in town, on the other side of the river. An incredible food tour guided by the knowledge of a professional Chef!
Then, reach our incredible and exclusive location for your hands-on cooking class, right in the heart of Florence.
Wear your apron and start listening to the Chef, because in a matter of minutes it will be you chopping, mixing, kneading... surprising yourself preparing the most delicious lunch you've ever tasted.
The menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available, but this is an example of it: typical home-made pasta from scratch like Potato Gnocchi, with a hand-made Pesto sauce (no kitchen robots but pestles!). Then a second dish like a delicious eggplant Parmigiana. And finally, prepare your own dessert, like Cantuccini (typical Tuscan dry biscuits to dip into Tuscan dessert wine Vinsanto). Enjoy your delicious creations tasting some of the finest Tuscan wines.
