Begin your culinary adventure in central Siena, where you’ll join up with your guide and head to a private kitchen.
Siena's countryside is abundant with olive groves, grapevines and sage and rosemary bushes, all which contribute to its culinary success. Using these local ingredients, learn how to first prepare the antipasti, or starters. Under the tutorial of your chef, put together plates of toasted crostini as well as the toppings for bruschetta, bread topped with juicy tomatoes, olive oil and basil.
Afterward, try your hand at Tuscan pici, a thick pasta hailing from Siena. Mix and knead your dough before cutting it into doughy strands, topped off with a sauce.
Then, say ‘Buon appetito!’ as you sit down to eat your dishes with your group. Your chef will select a top Tuscan wine to pair with your meal.
Appetites sated, depart with a recipe card so that you can recreate a taste of Tuscany back home.
