Ho regalato questa esperienza a mio marito per il sto trentesimo compleanno, essendo lui appassionato di carne e buon vino. Non avrei potuto fare scelta più azzeccata, tanto che lui l’ha definito “il regalo più bello che abbia mai ricevuto”. Lorenzo è esperto in materia e condivide generosamente trucchi preziosi su abbinamenti e metodi di cottura. Lui e la sua ragazza sono molto cordiali e ci hanno fatto sentire benvenuti, anche grazie alla gentilezza di tutta la famiglia di Lorenzo, che ci ha ospitato a casa. Nel complesso un’esperienza verace, autentica e immersiva, che consiglio a tutti.

Questa è stata la mia prima esperienza su Airbnb, e l'ho acquistata per regalarla al mio compagno, appassionato di cucina e della fiorentina. È stata una giornata molto bella, Lorenzo e Martina sono davvero appassionati ed esperti, oltre che disponibili e molto simpatici. E, non da ultimo, la cena è stata ottima! Carne squisita e vini eccellenti.

Sadly, due to being on another trip during the day I was unable to meet at the matket to participate and learn about picking the meat etc but this didn't distract in anyway from me feeling left out of the experience. Lorenzo picked me up in Florence along with another lovely couple, he was very welcoming and we all chatted away like old friends. He drove us to his home outside Florence where we were introduced to his partner Martina and Mother Lucia, we were made to feel very welcome in their home. We were treated to apetisers and wine and given lessons and tips on how to light the perfect BBQ, which wood to use etc Then the meat was produced, it was huge and we were taught how to prepare it, salt it and cook it...the smells were amazing. We were then treated to starters all made by his Mother Lucia, they were delicious. The produce was all homegrown on their plot too, which was great. Then it was time for the piece de resistance....the meat was carved in front of us and plated up with the remainder of the salads...it just melted in your mouth, it was truly amazing and paired with more lovely wine. The whole experience was one of really being a part of a Tuscan family for an evening and their life, I learned lots, was taken very good care of, made some nice friends and had a really wonderful evening. My advice would be to book this trip, you won't regret it, lovely company, great location, really fabulous local food and wine, picked up and dropped off safely....what more could you want for an amazing evening out....book it now and go and enjoy it. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. Kara x

The Bistecca Fiorentina experience was a super unique way to get out of the city and experience the tradition of sharing food with friends and family. I would highly recommend it!

Absolutely sensational. This was our favourite activity in Italy. We learned Florentine culture, cooking, habits, are beautiful food and drank beautiful wine and was a huge amount of fun. Lorenzo is charming, funny and knowledgeable about the area and Florentine cuisine and wines. He obviously loves his work and it’s infectious. From the moment he collected us we felt we were in the company of friends. We were taken to his mother’s home in a sublime setting just out of Florence. His mother was also was delightful and welcoming. We sat outside on a lovely lawn with two very nice dogs and looking up at lush Tuscan hills were treated to the the best way you can spend an afternoon. After we were dropped off at the end of the day, all six of us were laughing about how good was that afternoon. Unreservedly recommend this activity to everyone except perhaps vegetarians. It is a unique and very nice sample of Italian life. Worth every cent!
