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.

Allesandro was great, and the experience was fun for my husband, 3 college kids, and me. After so much walking and so many museums, this was a perfect activity--and our food turned out great!

We give this a 5 because the chefs are excellent and the food wonderful. We, indeed had a good time. Our only issues were: no water when we arrived on a 91 degree day and no air conditioning. But the glorious 4 course dinner we had prepared was well worth it.
