Meet a famous and charismatic chef and learn how to cook a traditional Tuscan meal in the heart of Florence.
First of all set off for Florence's central food market. The "Mercato Centrale" is the city's largest, most lively and colourful grocery market. 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 it’s just a short walk to the cooking class facility.
Aprons on, following your chef's skilled instructions and learn how to prepare 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 two good glasses 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.
Please inform us of any food intolerance or allergy in advance. Kindly note that the Central Market is closed Sundays and public holidays: on these days the class program will include a special introduction on Tuscan cooking and additional local product tastings.
