- Learn more about the local culture first-hand
The first-ever, original and most popular cooking class in Florence! Meet a famous and charismatic chef and learn how to cook a delicious Tuscan meal in the heart of Florence! First step: a little walk to the Central Market, grocery shopping! You will go shopping with the chefs at the central market, picking up the ingredients for your lunch.
You will meet the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens. You will learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients. After this fun experience, you will reach a fascinating home-like professional location, just a few steps from the central market, where you'll enjoy a delicious tasting of typical products and you will start putting your hands on the ingredients to create your own meal, driven by the expert guidance of the chef.
Your menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available, but will usually be made of bruschetta, different kinds of fresh home-made pasta from scratch (i.e. tagliatelle and ravioli), sauces for the pasta, and a dessert. And then you will obviously eat the meal you prepared yourself, accompanied by two glasses of a selection of Chianti wine.
A booklet with recipes will let you cook for your friends once you get back home. And finally, get your certificate of participation!
