Simonetta introduces you to her kitchen, full of books, spices, jars full of dried fruit..........and naturally with her pots and pans hanging from the wall, because there is no room left.

Cooking courses are a full immersion in her lifestyle, a mix of food and culture, but also of practicality. Learn to make dishes which you can easily reproduce at your home, and you will amaze yourselves by creating ravioli, fresh pasta, gnocchi, pizza...

Simonetta will teach you the simple but important tricks of everyday cooking, such as how to substitute an ingredient at the last moment, but what really counts is to have a passion for food....and some fresh herbs at hand.

The dishes are those of traditional Tuscany, such as meat ragout, pici, tagliatelle with tomato sauce, cantucci biscuits.

Included are the classic dishes of Italian cooking, such as Pizza, Ricotta Cheese and Spinach Ravioli, potato Gnocchi, stockfish salad, and many more!

Cooking with Simonetta in her beautiful farmhouse in the countryside was really one of the highlight of my trip . I learn to prepare hand made pasta and pizza and it was really nice to talk with her about Tuscan culinary secrets and traditions. The meal was excellent and i had the chance to relax and walk in her amazing garden afterward for a break... Really an unforgettable experience thanks federico and simonetta
