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 to the medieval Tuscan palace 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 at the palace. You’ll leave with a recipe booklet so you can recreate your dishes back home.

Brilliant experience would do it again

I had a great time! Being that it's the slower tourist season right now there were only three of us. We had great interaction with the chef, were all able to participate a lot more than if there had been a larger class and had lots of laughs. Everything was well thought out from the meeting place, to our pickup, the class itself and the meal. I highly recommend this class based on the wonderful experience and the amazing price. Of note, it's located in the older part of Florence just across the river which was great because that's where all of us happened to be staying. There is a lot to do once you leave as well! Great area.
