What You Can Expect

Tuscan Cooking Class and Dinner in Florence

Learn the secrets of Tuscan cuisine on this small-group cooking class

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.

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!

This cooking class was great. I only have greats things to say about it. Even with our location being changed due to the original spot being over booked. So it was nice they accommodate us at another venue.
Another nice thing was my wife is pregnant and for desert we were making tiramisu and when the chef found out he made a separate dessert for her since she cant have raw eggs. The chef was great in teaching us he was patience and a little comical and we learned a lot. I just wished we had more time to due another class with him for something else.
