Should we take a cooking class in Italy? Only at the original and most popular cooking class in Florence! Our famous local chefs will have you whipping up Italian classics in no time.

Get the finest produce from Florence Market accompanied by local chef

First thing on the itinerary is a walk to Florence’s market to pick up the ingredients you will prepare for your lunch. Meet the butchers, the bakers and the farmers who sell vegetables that they’ve grown in their own gardens. The friendly and charismatic chef accompanying you will help you find the highest quality ingredients in the market. Vegetarians are welcome too, just be sure to let us know in advance.

Cook a nice Tuscan meal in the heart of Florence

After getting all the fresh ingredients you need, you’ll head to a professional location just a short walk away. But before you start prepping for your lunch, you’ll enjoy a delicious tasting of local products. Then, under the expert guidance of our chefs, you’ll learn how to make a three-course meal. Menus vary on the season, but it will usually be a starter of bruschetta, followed by fresh pasta such as ravioli or tagliatelle, all rounded off with a dessert. 

Make the Tuscan recipes again and again back home

Once you’ve cooked your meal, of course you get to eat it - along with two glasses of a selection of Chianti wines. And visiting a cooking school Tuscany Italy would be pointless if you couldn’t go home and impress your friends and family with what you’ve learned. After a wonderful experience and a full stomach, you’ll leave with a booklet of recipes and a graduation certificate. Should you want to visit on a Sunday or a bank holiday, when the Central Market is closed, there will be a special introduction and extra tastings at the cooking school as a substitute.
