What You Can Expect

Cooking Class and Lunch at a Tuscan Farmhouse with Local Market Tour from Florence

Learn how to make a delicious Tiramisu!

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide. Walk to a Florentine food market and peruse the stalls, each teeming with the region’s freshest ingredients, including cured meats, olives, cheeses, balsamic vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes and other Tuscan delicacies. Select some of these high-quality ingredients for your cooking class later in the afternoon and enjoy tastings of the food and wine.

Climb aboard a minibus and journey into the Tuscan hills, where you'll arrive at a rustic farmhouse. Under the guidance of an expert chef, prepare a full Tuscan meal. Discover the culinary secrets behind Tuscan meat sauces and watch how to whip up Italian pasta from scratch.

Then grab fresh bread, tomatoes and olive oil to create a bruschetta. Take a break to feast on your dishes, sitting down with a glass of Chianti wine.

Return to the kitchen to prepare traditional roast pork, seasoned with fresh herbs from the farm. While the pork cooks, learn how to make the typical Italian dessert, the classic tiramisu.

Finally, reward yourself with your 4-course meal. Complement your roast pork and desserts with Tuscan wine and good conversation. Before returning to Florence, you’ll receive the recipes you learned so you can impress family and friends back at home with your Italian dishes.

Firstly, the location and facilities were enviable kitchen. Isak and Carmela were a fun pair, who made the whole day enjoyable and an Aussie I have come home inspired to cook my own pasta and pizza and learnt some valuable italian tips when using garlic, balsamic, basil, tomatoes and oil.....lotsa oil! Although our group was large, we all very quickly shared a common experience of food and cooking amongst friends. Thanks Isak and Carmela.

Funny, interesting tour and the cooking class was informative and very delicious. Take good notes during the cooking class because some of the tips and tricks didn’t make it into the recipes they email you .

This was our family of five's favorite thing we did on our 9 day trip to Italy. We enjoyed the market tour to buy the food we would be cooking and thought our guide Isaac was a very knowledgeable and really funny. The farmhouse such a beautiful, cool place to do this with a great view. Chef Carmella was so fun and full of energy. The pizza people that came in were also very friendly and fun. We really enjoyed learning to make bruschetta which ended up being the best I have ever had and also the fresh pasta from scratch. The ragu sauce we made was excellent and the pork roast/ roasted potatoes were delicious. The wine Chianti Classico was very good and you could have as much as you wanted. There was so much to eat. We left quite happy and haven't stopped talking about it since. Simply a great day. They emailed us the recipes we made and I'm going to do an Italy night at our house sometime soon to show off my new skills
