Cooking Class and Lunch at a Tuscan Farmhouse with Local Market Tour from Florence
From US$113.53
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.

I think we left the farmhouse around 4, maybe a few minutes after. The trip back to Florence is only about 15-20 minutes.

There were 27 in our class which I think is about the max. I had thought the max was 26, but they handled all of us very well. It was a fabulous experience.

Hello, Yes you can bring the luggage with you on the bus. The only thing you might not be able to leave all day long stored on the bus. In that case, you can carry at the cooking class venue. Kind regards The Walkabout Team
