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, starting with an array of appetizers. 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 and Italian pizza. 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 tiramisu and Italian gelato, using a freezing process that creates the ice cream's dense texture.

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.

Best tour experience ever! There, I said it. The experience was possibly one of the best that we have ever had on any vacation. We took the Walkabout Tours Cooking Class and Lunch at a Tuscan Farmhouse on September 10, 2016 with Freddy as our guide. Freddy showed us wonderful hospitality and gave us a great walking tour as we bought our ingredients for the meal. The farmhouse was very much modern and comfortable for handling our group during our meal prep. Our group was made up of folks from the US, Australia, and the UK. It was a fun filled afternoon while we each took turns making our meal. Finally, we sat together in an outdoor dining room that overlooked a beautiful valley in the hills of Florence. We then had our favorite meal of our vacation, drank incredibly delicious Chianti Classico, and finally finished the meal with our own handmade Tiramisu. Overall, my wife and I felt that the value of this tour was well worth the cost and time. Freddy and crew made us feel completely welcome and provided an experience that we will always treasure. This tour should be on everyones to-do list when coming to Florence. You wont regret it!

Out of all the many things we've done in Florence over the years, this was by far our favorite! From start to finish, it was both fun and interesting. Our tour guide Valeria, was exceptional. Funny, kind, and informative! The walking tour through Florence as we gathered our ingredients was just long enough. The kitchen, outdoor pizza oven, and THE VIEW were all amazing at the Tuscany farm! With Chef Carmella's help, we made and enjoyed delicious food with people from many different parts of the world. Do this tour!

My Mom and I took a 3 week European vacation, including Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, and England ... this class was the ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT of our entire vacation! We had so much fun buying groceries in the Florence Marketplace, with our guide Elisa, before heading to the beautiful farmhouse to spend the rest of the day cooking, drinking, eating, and hanging out with a group of about 24 people. Our awesome Chef, Carmela assisted us in cooking more food than we thought we could possibly eat, including bruschetta, beef ragu, pasta, pizza, tiramisu, and more! Thank you Elisa, Carmela, and Walkabout Florence! We can't wait to come back and do it again. Buon Appetito!
