Meet Chef Giovanni and learn how to cook a four-course Tuscan banquet in a private home in the heart of Florence! Numbers are limited to a maximum of 25 people on this small group Italian cooking class, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your knowledgeable food expert.

Whether you're a cooking enthusiast or a novice, this full-day cooking class promises to be fun and entertaining. You'll source produce from a local market, a unique opportunity to meet Italian locals and best of all, you can wow friends and family with your Tuscan recipes when you return home.
First, you'll take a trip to the Florence Central Market, shopping with Chef Giovanni to pick up the ingredients for your lunch. Meeting the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens, you will learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients and how to barter to get the best price. You'll also taste local food and wines.

Then it's time to start your cooking lesson in a private kitchen in Florence. During this true hands-on experience, you will learn how to prepare bruschetta, fresh home-made pasta, and a main course, accompanied with a selection of Chianti wines.

And at the end of your lesson your reward will be the delicious lunch you have prepared, under the watchful eye of Chef Giovanni.

The cooking class was amazing. Giuseppe took us in a small van to the market to see what type of fresh ingredients we should try and buy. Such an authentic experience. He was so friendly and funny throughout his guided tour. We then left the market and headed towards the gorgeous farmhouse where we would be instructed throughout cooking our meal. The landscape was breathtaking - take pictures!! The 4 course meal was beyond enjoyable, filling, and such an experience. We learned so much from the lesson and had a great time during it. We've even swapped contact info with the small group we took the class with. (We are also a young couple that was on our honeymoon and we thought it was such an enjoyable and fun experience.) Highly recommended.

Cooking class was everything we expected and more. Enjoyed visiting the food market, the clear instructions on preparation of recipes and particularly enjoyed eating all we prepared with extra treats and plenty of wine. Thank you for a most memorable Florence adventure.
