Erika

I have been the founder of "Cuoche in Vacanza" (Chef for Vacation) for 10 years: private cooking classes and dinners directly to your villa in Tuscany. I'm a professional Chef (Certificate Italian Chef Academy in Florence) and a professional Sommelier (Certificate Italian Federation Sommeliers Hoteliers and Restaurateurs). I'm also a proud manager of the Slow Food association (Good, Clean and Fair Food). I have been the owner for 1 year of a newly renovated stone house that's a Cooking-School and B&B, near Lucca. Here you can learn to make a typical Italian or Tuscan menu and of course fresh handmade pasta. My culinary philosophy is based on the seasonality and freshness of the ingredients. My biggest goal? being able to have my students re-create the same flavors they tasted here at the course once they arrived in their country.

What's included

Food
At the end of the cooking class, you'll enjoy the fruit of your labor comfortably sit at the table
Equipment
Bowls, apron, rolling pins, pasta machine, and other kitchen tools from the company "Cuoche in Vacanza".

Where you'll be

Welcome to my just renovated Stonehouse in Lucca countryside. The building is not only a Cooking School but a small B&B as well. You can come here in your rented car, or in a taxi. If you don't want to worry about finding the place, I can put you in touch with a taxi driver who often brings customers. The Private Cooking Class will be run in my open-space semi-professional kitchen. You'll be greeted with coffee/wine/water.
