What you'll do

If you don’t have a car you can get the bus next to the central train station in Florence and I will pick you up at the bus stop in Tavarnuzze, just ten minutes away where I live.
On the way to my house we will make a stop at local farmer/vegetables grower where we will get to pick up vegetables directly from his green garden: there isn’t any fresher ingredients we could use to cook with!!!
Together we will make handmade pasta, using our herbs from the garden and our own extravergin olive oil. We will also learn how to use different pasta shapes (tagliatelle, ravioli). I’ll teach you how to prepare the pizza dough and how to have many different recipes from this versatile dough.
We'll prepare a complete menu including appetizers, pasta, main course, side dishes and dessert and sip some good local wine!
And if the weather allows… we will enjoy the meal we have prepared in the morning outside in the garden overlooking vineyards and olive trees surrounded by Chianti nature

The experience lasts about 4 hours.
Other things to note
We can decide if cooking in my heyloft or in the middle of the garden dipending on the weather... anyway we will cook a lot!

Camilla hat uns mit einer außergewöhnliche Erfahrung beschert. Wir wurden von ihr abgeholt und zu ihren Haus gebracht - tolle Location. Sie hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen, all unsere Fragen beantwortet und einfach einen rundum tollen Kochkurs gemacht, bei der man eine große Vielfalt an unterschiedlichen Sachen kocht, aber vor allem auch Rezepte, die man bom Aufwand und Zutaten auch gut zu Hause nachkommen kann. Camilla - Danke für dieses tolle Erlebnis!

Der Kochkurs ist wirklich toll. Man lernt einiges und auch überraschendes über italienischen Brotteig und einige Tricks zum Pasta machen. Die Location und das kochen unter freiem Himmel macht es sehr besonders, wie auch das nutzen von lokalen und Produkten aus dem Garten. Man fühlt sich dort wirklich angekommen und Camilla ist sehr herzlich.

Where do we begin?! From the moment Camilla met us in her driveway I knew we were going to have an amazing experience - she was so warm and personable and welcomed us into her home like family. We cooked two types of pasta (ravioli and tagliatelle) and she let me customize the sauce options based on my dietary preferences so we did a home made tomato sauce and a butter and sage sauce. We also did a chicken entree, 3 types of focaccia bread and a delicious dessert. When it came time to enjoy all of our recipes Camilla made us feel right at home and shared a bottle of her favorite Chianti Classico for us to enjoy during our lunch. She took her time with us and never made us feel rushed - she wanted us to have the best experience and as a result, we can honestly say, this cooking class was the highlight of our two week honeymoon in Italy. We even got to take home a book of Camilla’s recipes so we can always remember this experience and share with our family and friends. It was truly amazing!

Camilla is a very kind host and she lives in a very beautiful place, surrounded by vineyards, mountains and trees! She’s very communicative, making me and my wife feel very comfortable with her, like we were in the kitchen of our own house. All the details were very well explained by her with patience, so we could cook delicious ravioli, focaccia, bread, chicken, salami chocolate... a lot of food with good ingredients (from local producers). We also had a good wine! It was wonderful, an incredible experience that we will carry with us for the whole life, we loved it!

We had a lovely day cooking with Camilla. We stayed in Florence and took a cab to a small town near her home and she picked us up and drove us to her beautiful country-side house. We made two different types of pasta, 3 breads, a chicken dish, veggies and dessert! Her recipes aren't complicated but VERY delicious and i plan to try a couple of them at home. She shared many great tips while making the dishes and provides a cookbook for you to take home. This was a unique experience and one I'll remember for a lifetime. Camilla wen the the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and the food we made was AMAZING! Definitely book this experience if you're looking for a fun, relaxing and delicious cooking class!
