Browse through the colorful stalls piled high with fresh produce, get to know the typical products, meet the bakers, butchers and cheese vendors. Taste a selection of scrumptious specialties, and select what you'll need to prepare your meal.
After the market a pleasant drive aboard our comfortable minivan will take you to the peace and quiet of the rolling countryside, and the charming farmhouse where you will have your culinary experience and cooking class. Meet your friendly dedicated chef, follow him to see our organic vegetable garden, and pick the best and most tempting of the fresh veggies and fragrant Tuscan herbs. Aprons on!
Follow your chef's skilled know-how and learn the secrets of making exquisite traditional dishes.

Fun and Educational Class

My husband and I took the Wanna Be Italiano Cooking Class and Tour of the Central Market. It was a day well spent. The guide and chefs were personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. It was fun to meet other folks vacationing in Tuscany, plus we learned how to make several pastas and tiramisu. I highly recommend this class.

Fantastic Class

Me and my girlfriend absolutely loved this class, we were taught everything we wanted to learn and was treated to some great in depth knowledge of Tuscany, the markets of Florence and how to build basic Italian sauces and of course Pasta.

Martina Lauro Chef Extraordinaire!

Martina Lauro is a super hero chef! She explains in detail why and how to find what you need at the market to make an amazing Ragù alla bolognese, with home made ravioli and pappardelle! For dessert we made tiramisu! It was the most amazing experience. I HIGHLY suggest doing this on any visit to Florence.

Excellent Experience

I purchased this experience as a Christmas gift for my husband and he loved it!! Our instructor David was great, he was entertaining and informative. We made Fettuccine with Bolognese sauce and Tiramisu from scratch. I highly recommend this experience while visiting Florence.
