What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in central Florence, and head straight to a local market selling fresh Italian produce. Browse stalls replete with cheese, cured meats, olives, and balsamic vinegar before you select the ingredients required for this cooking class. Board a minibus and travel through the Tuscan hills to a rustic farmhouse, the quaint setting of your cooking class. Prepare seasonal Tuscan dishes that could include roast pork and bruschetta, stopping to enjoy a glasses of Chianti wine as you go. Create a tiramisu from scratch before sitting down to enjoy the 4-course meal you've cooked. Return to central Florence by minivan and receive all recipes by email.
