What to expect

Attend a private cooking class in the morning or in the afternoon, learn the secrets of the Sienese recipes and have fun by learning how to reproduce the Italian specialties at home. Connect with local people, meet the Cesarina at her home and learn all her secrets to prepare local specialties such as:

  • Pappa al pomodoro, ribollita and acquacotta: Discover the flavors of Tuscany’s land with this fantastic soup-making course. From this stunning landscape, unearth a treasure trove of fresh produce full of secrets to unlock. This region is famous for its humble soups, so make sure to learn the most trusted family recipes.
  • Crostini with chicken liver, 'Lampedotto' tripe, wild boar 'alla cacciatora': This course is for adventurous foodies who love trying out less common cuts of meat. Understanding “peasant” cuisine is fundamental if you want to understand Italian food culture, and these dishes reflect the times of hardship that Italy’s people have faced.
  • 'Zuccotto' gelato cake, panforte and castagnaccio: A course especially for those who love traditional desserts. Three indulgent Tuscan dishes, prepared on Feast Days and special occasions, such as Panforte, a famous Christmas treat, and Castagnaccio, an autumn cake made with freshly harvested chestnuts.
  • 'Coccoli' fritters with ham and stracchino cheese, chicken fricasée, Florentine-style peas and Chianti-soaked pears

Finally, taste the fruit of your labor and experience the authentic flavors of Siena cuisine paired with a selection of local red and white wines as the Cesarine offer only wines of the territory.
