What you'll do

Together we will explore the tradition of Tuscan and Italian cuisine in our beautiful terraced home in Florence. Your journey will start with a brief introduction to local and national cuisine over coffee and Italian breakfast, before embarking on an adventure in fresh pasta in its various forms, regional sauces, and a traditional Tuscan dessert revisited. 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. The menu can change depending on the seasonally fresh, local ingredients available. We look forward to having you in our home with family and friends (this is a perfect group activity!), sending you back with wonderful memories and a parting gift to remember us by.
