Learn to cook a traditional Tuscan meal during a 4-hour cooking class accompanied by an experienced cook who will guide you and give you great tips. At the end of the class, savor the various dishes you've prepared.
Meet the cook and the rest of the group in the morning on via Ricasoli and head to the Mercato Centrale Firenze.
Step inside the bustling central market and wander past the numerous colorful stalls accompanied by the professional cook in search of the right fresh produce and ingredients to make the best dishes. It’s a great opportunity to practice your Italian and meet the vendors selling their home-produced vegetables, fruit, cheese and wine.
With your basket full of foods, you’ll head to a fully equipped kitchen in a striking setting, where you’ll prepare your meal. The authentic 4-course lunch usually consists of bruschetta, a fresh pasta dish made from scratch, a main course and dessert.
When you’ve finished, sample your cooking accompanied by a refreshing Chianti wine. The cook will give useful advice and ideas to continue mastering your cooking skills at home.
The cooking class will finish at approximately 3 pm.
