What you'll do

As an Italian, love for good food and wine is in my blood, and cooking together is a way of connecting and sharing.
Do you want to bring a taste of Italy home?
Since the beginning of the new social distancing measures, technology allows us to “travel from home”!
Doing the activity with a real Italian tour guide from Florence, learning simple family recipes, and Italian stories in an informal and direct way are the keys to the experience itself.
You'll learn not only a recipe in a fun way, but the tradition, the stories, and the social matters behind it since food is one of the truest expressions of a country.
I normally pair the experience with cocktail making or wine classes, all the recipes are simple (even for beginners) and fast, and all from my family tradition, mainly my Grandma "Nonna Tosca".
You'll experience time in an Italian family, how Italians cook and eat for real at home, and you can easily then show off what you have learned during a future meal with friends.
As we use to say in Italy “Dimmi cosa mangi e ti dirò chi sei” – “Tell me how you eat and I’ll tell you who you are!
Altre cose da tenere a mente
The experience is live and online, you require just an internet connection and the ingredients for the cooking class; the recipes are quick and simple, suitable even for beginners. In the end, you will receive a detailed pdf with the steps taken together.

Hi I'm Beatrice, tour guide and food-lover from Florence. I studied Archaeology and traveled the world doing excavations until I was so homesick of my land that I decided to move back to my beautiful Tuscany! ..and the thing I was missing more was the food! So I came back and became a tour-guide in 2014, hosting mainly food tours. As an Italian girl, love for good food and wine is in my blood and it has always been a family tradition cooking together, as a way of connecting and sharing. My main teachers have been my Grandma "Nonna Tosca" and my parents, from all of them I have really inherited the passion for Italian traditions. As a tour guide, my job is to make people fall in love with art and Italian tradition.

Fun, informative, delicious. Bea’s class was a really nice break from our everyday schedule and a great opportunity to learn a bit about the culture and traditions that inform Italian drinks and snacks. Bea’s an engaging storyteller and makes the whole experience shine.
