  • It’s time to get down to business!  Meeting with our chef who will guide you in the preparation of a typical Tuscan lunch based on authentic and simple Tuscan recipes;
  • And now we eat! After cooking new recipes , you can finally relax in front of the magical panorama and enjoy the Tuscan lunch prepared by you.

Join us in our little corner of paradise and, through a fun and interactive cooking class, you will learn how to prepare delicious recipes typical of Tuscan cuisine with a professional chef , while tasting the excellent local wine .

A hands -on experience designed for food lovers , allowing you to explore Tuscan cuisine in more depth than you would simply by eating in restaurants.

Prepare your meal, have fun with us and feast on the fruits of your labor!

The recipes will be provided to you after the lesson, making sure you can recreate Tuscan dishes in your home as well.

Your dietary needs are not a problem for us: our courses are also vegetarian , vegan , gluten and / or lactose free on request and always with local, fresh and seasonal ingredients .

What you will do

Expand All

In one day you can prepare an entire Italian meal, with traditional recipes to learn the typical Tuscan cuisine.

You will work directly in the kitchen with our Chef who will teach you her secrets on Tuscan flavours. During our cooking class you will prepare everything with your own hands.

You will prepare an entire meal with different dishes: a first course, like soup or pasta, a main course, like meat (beef or pork, or other) and then you will finish with a cake.

It is a totally practical lesson, where you cut the meat, make sauces, prepare the dome for the cakes, roast in the oven or cook in the pan.

You will learn the use of our special tools like "Passatutto", or "Mezzaluna" very common in Italian kitchens but completely unknown in most of the world.

When your work is complete, you will start your lunch; at the beginning you will taste some local products like cheese, salami or something else... and then you can eat the dishes you prepared during the cooking class. The most traditional and typical Tuscan flavours.

But you will find many other things ... very important to give you the real "Sensations of Tuscan life".
