Your Tuscan cooking class will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your small group near Piazza Santa Trinita. Follow your instructor across the Arno River where the cooking school is located.

Soak up the views of the iconic Ponte Vecchio as you cross the Arno before making your way into the modern kitchen. Tie on your provided apron, roll up your sleeves and get to work with the guidance of an expert chef. The menu tends to vary but typically comprises chicken stew, potato gnocchi and a dessert, such as the popular tiramisu. (A sample menu can be found in the Itinerary section below.) Hear about Tuscan culinary techniques and traditions as you prep and cook your meal.

Afterward, reap the benefits of all your hard work! Seated around your fellow chefs, enjoy your creations with a glass of local wine.

Once your stomach and taste buds have been sated, your Tuscan cooking class will conclude. You’ll leave with a recipe booklet so you can recreate your dishes back home.

This was Lots of fun and well worth it. Chef was funny and instructive and we made four items appetizer, 2nd course pasta, 3rd course entree and dessert. Then we all sat down and enjoyed it with wine. And no dishes to clean up.

The guide showed at the right location and a few minutes early. A quick walk over abridge and to the Kitchen. Our chef was very handsome and very personable with a good sense of humor. We made all four courses. They improvised on some recipes to accommodate for guests with food allergies so we had a couple bonus dishes. I loved the atmosphere, learned a lot, enjoyed meeting the other guests and the food was incredible. I was shocked to know that was something I made it was so good. We ate together in the wine cellar and it was very nice and relaxing. Perfect for a marathon vacation like we were on....

We had a great time at this cooking class! Niccolo was just wonderful and we had fun making appetizers, ravioli, a chicken dish, and panna cotta. Our group was nice and it was fun to visit after working together to create the meal!

Florence - of course. Cooking class in Florence? Why not??? Just a fun time. You get to meet great people, learn how to cook certain recipes in which they give you the menu and recipes at the end to take with you, and enjoy them in the cellar with wine. Just a fun time!

Ill admit I can be a bit of a Negative Nancy. It doesnt deserve as low as 2 stars, but it doesnt deserve 3 either... more of a 2.5.

Pros:
1 Very friendly/competent chef lead the class
2 small groups for individualized attention
3 great if you dont cook much and dont have a good fundamental base

Cons:
1 The class nor dinner was in a palace.
2 You do not nessacarily get the food you prepared. You mightve gotten the groups next to you that over/under cooked something.
3 Extremly simple meals if you are already familiar with basic cooking fundamentals.
4 Small complaint, but our group had more than the 12 people that was supposedly the group maximum.
5 Not really sure where the rest of our food went?? My wife and I cooked the same amount as groups that had 3-5 people. When we got our food at the end, we didnt even see half of it. When we asked for more, there wasnt any left. Then out of no where, there was a little left...???

In summary, it was simple but good. Ingredients were fresh. There wasnt any touring of the city or markets.
