Family & Friends COOKING CLASS
BEING ON A BUDGET DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T EXPERIENCE THE REAL TUSCAN EXPERIENCE!
2021 NEWS! We have created a “paperback” version of our classic Cooking Class, and priced it accordingly: traveling with family or on a budget doesn’t mean you have to give up the Tuscan experience!
We are happy to offer an affordable hands-on, healthy and fun experience, a plentiful lunch with wine for the adults, juice for the kids, and homemade dessert for everyone! Transportation included.
FAMILIES: if you are traveling with younger ones, and would like a real FAMILY experience, what could be better than making pasta in a FAMILY HOME? Our garden offers a safe space for kids to run around, play pingpong, shoot the hoop, lay in the hammock if and when they get tired of the class, while the adults can still enjoy learning more without distractions.

COOKING CLASS (evening)
THIS IS OUR CLASSIC EVENING COOKING CLASS, NOW UPGRADED:

Wine & Cook
THIS IS OUR CLASSIC FULL TUSCAN EXPERIENCE:
A COMBINATION OF our MOST EXTENSIVE WINE TOUR and our EVENING COOKING CLASS.
OUR 23 YEAR OLD CLASSIC, NOW UPGRADED!
THIS IS THE COMBINATION OF OUR WINE TOUR AND EVENING COOKING CLASS.
As native Italians, we know all too well that there is no part-time when it comes to food and wine.
Seeing the undiscovered Chianti countryside, enjoying wine at a family owned winery, being part of the scenery, wishing a good day goodnight while sitting at a kitchen table in a historical private home, breathing in the smells, taking in the sounds: an all-Italian, inebriating sensorial experience.
IN DETAIL: Pick-up is at 2:30pm, to allow you a full morning of sightseeing in Florence and a light lunch before we meet. (1:45pm on daylight saving, to maximize views)
We’ll take you back in time, to an XI century hamlet on top of a hill in Chianti or a Renaissance palace, (depending on the day), both surrounded by breathtaking views: you will become part of a moving Renaissance painting, away from crowds and typical tourist destinations.
Once at the estate, (35 min. ride, approximately) we’ll visit the working winery, with its fermentation tanks and aging barrels, and enjoy a plentiful tasting of certified wines and extra virgin olive oil.
Then, in 15 minutes or less, we will arrive at our cooking class location: the setting is our private historical home on the hills over Florence – where we’ll learn how to make homemade pasta from scratch and other delicacies like you’ve never had before: NATURALLY low gluten, low cal, low carb, and yet more nutritious and satisfying.
(It’s a hands-on lesson, you don’t just watch a chef do all the work …)
We have added a bubbly welcome toast with prosecco.
The tour will end up with a plentiful home-cooked dinner, unlimited wine, coffee, homemade dessert and homemade liquors included.
After dinner, plenty of time to chat at the table and exchange addresses and suggestions with our new friends.
We recommend it as the ultimate authentic, full experience of real Tuscan life, as well as a fun yet educational way to master the most typical Italian meal with a health twist, and simply to enjoy an afternoon and evening in the peaceful and romantic Chianti countryside.
