Taste the best products from the Florence Food Market in the company of a charismatic chef

First, take a stroll to the historic and wonderful Florence market where you can pick up all the ingredients you need to prepare your delicious lunch. In this evocative location you will meet butchers, bakers and farmers selling typical products locally grown and processed. Your friendly and professional chef who will accompany you throughout the experience will help you find the best quality ones suitable for your preparations. Vegetarians are also welcome, just inform us in advance.

Cooking typical and delicious Tuscan dishes

After chatting with local producers and collecting all the necessary fresh ingredients, you will head to the food preparation area just a few steps away from the Florence food market. Before you get to work and start preparing your lunch, however, you will enjoy a delicious tasting of traditional local products to refresh you before getting down to business. Under the expert guidance of your professional chef, you will then learn how to prepare a three-course meal. Menus may vary depending on the season, but they will always include an appetizer with bruschetta, followed by fresh pasta such as ravioli or tagliatelle, all rounded off with a dessert.

Enjoy the dishes you have prepared and recreate them at home in serenity

Once your dishes have been cooked, of course it will be time to sit down and enjoy them accompanied by two glasses of fine, selected Chianti wine. Taking part in a private cooking class in Florence would be meaningless if you could not return home and share what you have learnt with friends and family. From this wonderful experience, you will take with you a complimentary recipe book to recreate all the traditional dishes and a certificate of participation. Should your visit take place on a Sunday or public holiday, when the Mercato Centrale is closed, the cookery school will be replaced by a special introduction and extra tasting.
