What you'll do

Together we will explore the tradition of Tuscan and Italian cuisine in my family’s home nestled in the city center of Florence. Your journey will start with a brief introduction to local and national cuisine over coffee or wine, before embarking on an adventure in fresh pasta in its various forms, regional sauces, and a traditional Tuscan dessert. After this intensive and entertaining introduction to Italian cooking, we will prepare your culinary creations, accompanied with an aperitivo, wine, dessert and local liquor. You will dine surrounded by Florence beauties, right in the heart of where Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Dante concocted ideas that would change the history of the world.
I look forward to let you experience a real Tuscany cuisine, sending you back with a wonderful memories and a parting gift to remember me by!

Tolles Erlebnis! Alessia ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin in sehr schönem Ambiente. Alles war professionell und mit Liebe zum Detail vorbereitet. Es hat riesigen Spaß gemacht Pasta selbst zu machen. Das gemeinsame anschließende Essen pure Freude. Ich hatte zudem das große Glück als einzige Teilnehmerin einen privaten Kurs zu genießen!

I love Florence but the cooking class with Alessia was definitely my most favorite experience! Since of COVID there are less tourists in Florence right now so I was the only guest. Alessia still held the cooking class and I felt very welcomed. She has the most beautiful home, we made the best Pesto, Ravioli and Dessert and shared a great wine. Alessia is such a warm and open person, you feel like you are cooking with a friend. I can recommend this experience 100%!!!

Mijn vriend en ik hebben een hele leuk kookles gehad en een hoop geleerd van de Italiaanse keuken. Alessia wist enorm veel en deelde haar kennis met veel passie. We hebben genoten van de avond en onze creaties waren heerlijk. Een echte aanrader was een van de hoogte punten van onze vakantie!
