Description

The best way to really taste Tuscany? A cooking class! Leave the hustle and bustle of downtown Florence behind, and spend a day in the Chianti hills, learning to cook genuine local fare from a talented professional chef!

Unique among all organic Tuscan cooking classes, our signature VIP semi-private organic cooking masterclass in Tuscany leads you through rolling vineyard-clad hills to discover the local gastronomic legacy firsthand. Learning to make lush Italian dishes in the exquisite setting of a typical farmhouse, you will also have the chance to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan heritage, and the charming allure of the Chianti hills, the birthplace of some of the world’s most extraordinary wines.

All with the privilege of VIP treatment: a small-group tour in the heart of Tuscany, a cooking class led by a brilliant professional chef, and state-of-the-art chauffeur service for the day.

Meet fellow participants and set off towards Chianti. Traveling aboard a comfortable minivan allows you to make the most of your journey, enjoying scenic views. Once at the farmhouse, located in a beautiful spot of the luxuriant countryside, you will be met and greeted by the chef, and led to discover the first of many delights: our small, but extremely bountiful, organic vegetable garden. An organic Tuscan cooking class calls for healthy fresh ingredients, so browse through the rows of veggies and herbs. Your chef will show you how to tell what’s ripe enough to pick… and use in the kitchen today! Herbs and vegetables each have their own ripening season, so you’ll have different choices according to the time of the year.

Bring your vegetables into the kitchen and get ready to prove your culinary ability: Tuscan cuisine is all about using adding heartfelt energy to what you do, so you’re sure to get the knack of it soon enough!

Follow your chef’s lead, and you will soon be able to mix and match fresh organic produce with grains and seasoning to concoct mouthwatering dishes. As regards the menu, it will vary according to season, but generally include two types of homemade pasta (ravioli and pappardelle, for example) and a luscious dessert.

When all is ready and perfectly seasoned, sit down to enjoy the best lunch ever: the one you prepared yourself, hands-on, in a charming farmhouse in Tuscany! Such a cooking class deserves more than one toast, so a selection of fabulous Chianti wines, including Tuscan dessert wine, will be served with lunch.

Finally, receive a full Recipe Booklet, comprising instructions on how to make the delicious dishes you learned during your Tuscan cooking class, so you can cook lovely Italian meals for your friends back home, and a Certificate of Attendance.

Travel back to Florence in full comfort, savoring the view and the memories of your day in the Tuscan hills.
