This private tour is an unforgettable gastronomic experience which allows you to discover Tuscany’s colorful culinary heritage and tempting specialties firsthand.
Led by a passionate Chef, you will stroll through the charming streets of the old town to discover the fascinating authentic historic Bottegas and learn all about and taste some typical Florentine street food, Italian best delicatessen, and home-made organic gelato. Here you will also buy some of the freshest ingredients you will need for the recipes in your cooking class.
Groceries in hand, you will take a short walk to the cooking class facility, a delightful location in the city centre. Aprons on! Follow your skilled chef's skilled instructions and learn how to concoct the most exquisite traditional dishes: your menu will generally include home-made hand-rolled pasta, a tasty pasta sauce, a traditional main dish such as Eggplant Parmigiana and a typical dessert, too, like almond Tuscan cantuccini (typical Tuscan dry biscuits) to dip into sweet Vinsanto wine.
Measure, mince, mix and stir (and taste, of course, to get the seasonings right!), and finally sit down with a glass of excellent Tuscan wine to relish the best Tuscan meal ever: the one you made yourself, in the heart of historic Florence.
At the end of the experience you will receive a full recipe booklet, a superb souvenir which will allow you to share the delicious recipes you learned with your friends and family at home.
