What You Can Expect

Experience Florence: Tuscan Dinner in a Florentine Home

Chicken Cacciatore

Tuscan food is famous all over the world, and for good reason! Simple yet creative, the cuisine focuses on using the very best ingredients -- fresh, locally grown and always in season. Imagine the reddest tomatoes you've ever laid eyes on, olive oil from the Tuscan hills, fresh breads, mild cheeses and grilled meats: welcome to Tuscan cuisine!

Your evening in a local Florence home lets you enjoy this famous food in a relaxed and authentic setting. After meeting your friendly host (professional chef) outside in the center of town, take a leisurely five-minute walk to his or her home. Dinner is ready and waiting, so make yourself at home in the dining room and savor an aperitif while your host brings the first course to the table.

The Chef helps contemporary dinners rediscover the intrinsic value of classic Italian cuisine, reinterpreted for a modern clientele, bringing an innovative and refined presentation but with traditional ingredients.

The dishes served throughout your five-course Tuscan feast will vary according to seasonality and what the local market has available that day. Rest assured, whatever you eat is guaranteed to be a homemade specialty. Wine is not included, but you'll be able to buy some from your host, should you want it to complement your meal.

As you eat, chat, relax and enjoy the feeling of being ‘at home’ in Florence, find out the secrets of home-cooking in Tuscany and learn about the dishes' origins and history. Dinner ends with coffee, and when you're ready to leave, your host will point you in the right direction to your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Best meal we had in Italy! Our host met us promptly at the promised central location and proceeded to take us to his nearby home where we had a spectacular 5-course meal. Simply put, the meal included local ingredients that were crafted into memorable courses from beginning to end. Absolutely the high point of our trip to Florence. Don't miss this opportunity!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

The dinner was absolutely wonderful. Vary prepared a gourmet five-course meal that was beautifully presented and tasted incredibly. Eduardo served us and provided us with great insight into the food and Florence in general. I, my wife and daughter, had a wonderful evening. This is a great value in terms of the food and the personal attention in a very pleasant B and B. Five Stars!!!
