ALL YEAR ROUND
Popular and sought-after in all seasons, year after year, by groups of friends, fun-loving families and foodies, our signature "Wanna Be Italiano" cooking class in Florence is the very best hands-on culinary experience you can get in the city! Dive into the depths of flavor, master the art of preparing a mouth-watering Tuscan meal in the heart of downtown Florence with our experienced, charismatic chef.
First of all set off for Florence's central food market. The "Mercato Centrale" is the city's largest, most lively and colorful grocery market, an enormous bazaar filled with deliciousness! Led by your chef you will browse, learn about the local specialties and the Tuscan food heritage, and liase with the vegetable vendors, butchers and bakers as you pick out the best, tastiest ingredients to prepare your meal. Groceries in hand take a short walk to our cooking class facility, a delightful location which will make you feel at home, and enjoy a tasting of typical delicacies before starting the actual class.
Aprons on, following your chef's skilled instructions and learn how to prepare exquisite traditional dishes: crispy bruschetta, fresh hand-rolled pasta, tasty pasta sauces and dessert, too. Measure, mince, mix and stir (and taste, of course, to get the seasonings right!), and finally sit down with a good glass of Chianti wine and relish the best Tuscan meal ever: the one you made yourself in the heart of historic Florence.
At the end of the experience you will receive a Cooking Class Attendance Certificate, as well as a full Recipe Booklet to share the recipes you learned with your friends and family at home.
*Meal includes the menu as prepared and 2 glasses of Chianti wine per person. Menu of our Florence Cooking class varies slightly according to the season but will generally include bruschetta, hand-made pasta, pasta sauce and a dessert.
