Cooking Class and Lunch at a Tuscan Farmhouse with Local Market Tour from Florence
Gain deeper insight into Tuscan cuisine during a cooking class and local market tour from Florence. A hands-on experience designed for food lovers, this tour allows you to explore Italian cuisine in more depth than you would by simply eating in restaurants. Pick fresh ingredients from a Florence market yourself and feast on the fruits of your labor—which include bruschetta, roast pork, and tiramisu. Recipes are provided by email after the class, ensuring your can recreate Tuscan dishes back at home, too.
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.

Perfect, well organised and friendly staff.

This cooking class was perfect, Olivia and Carmela were excellent, and made this a very enjoyable and memorable experience. This is the perfect opportunity to learn some new skills and try some great food. I would recommend this to anyone.
