Lektion i toskansk matlagning och middag i Florens
As you cross the river, stop to admire the views of the magnificent Ponte Vecchio. Then, when you arrive at the school, head inside and find your allocated spot in the modern kitchen.
Next, listen avidly as a friendly, expert chef talks you through the 4-course dinner you’re about to cook.
Your menu will vary according to the day of your class and the availability of ingredients, but typically, you can expect to prepare a classic Tuscan meal of favorites such as potato gnocchi (dumplings), Hunter’s Chicken (chicken stew), and a dessert such as tiramisu. See the Itinerary below for sample menus.
Put on your supplied apron and set to work following the provided recipes. As you prep, get helpful tips from the chef and gain valuable insights into local culinary traditions and techniques that you can use to impress family and friends back home.
With your meal ready, take a seat at the communal table in the charming dining area and savor your finished dishes in the company of your fellow cooks. As you eat, enjoy a glass of wine — your experience includes a complimentary bottle shared between four people.
Discuss your efforts with your companions and learn the strengths and weaknesses of your dishes in the eyes of your chef.
After your convivial meal, receive a recipe booklet to take home with you and then say your goodbyes. Your tour ends when you leave the cooking school.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this class! Chefs and support staff were completely professional, engaging, patient, and fun! We had a great time learning a lot and then enjoying a delicious meal! Special thanks and appreciation to Chef Walter for accommodating us by including the gnocchi, which we were expecting because of a misprint. Grazie e Buon Appetito!
We had a great time at this cooking class! Niccolo was just wonderful and we had fun making appetizers, ravioli, a chicken dish, and panna cotta. Our group was nice and it was fun to visit after working together to create the meal!
Florence - of course. Cooking class in Florence? Why not??? Just a fun time. You get to meet great people, learn how to cook certain recipes in which they give you the menu and recipes at the end to take with you, and enjoy them in the cellar with wine. Just a fun time!
Great fun for the family. A bit rushed.
