What You Can Expect

Small-Group Italian Cooking Class in Florence

Small-Group Italian Cooking Class in Florence

First, you'll take a trip to the Florence Central Market, shopping with Chef Giovanni to pick up the ingredients for your lunch. Meeting the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens, you will learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients and how to barter to get the best price. You'll also taste local food and wines.

Then it's time to start your cooking lesson in a private kitchen in Florence. During this true hands-on experience, you will learn how to prepare bruschetta, fresh home-made pasta, and a main course, accompanied with a selection of Chianti wines.

And at the end of your lesson your reward will be the delicious lunch you have prepared, under the watchful eye of Chef Giovanni.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

I highly recommend it. I was attending on my own and was a little apprehensive that I was not going to have a cooking partner etc but that was not the case. The class was in English, the visit to the market was great. We each made 2 types of pasta which we are later, great fun. Do it!
