Overview
Gain deeper insight into Tuscan cuisine during a cooking class and local market tour from Florence. A hands-on experience designed for food lovers, this tour allows you to explore Italian cuisine in more depth than you would by simply eating in restaurants. Pick fresh ingredients from a Florence market yourself, make the meal, and feast on the fruits of your labor. Recipes are provided by email after the class, ensuring you can recreate Tuscan dishes back at home, too.
Highlights
  • Delve deeper into Tuscan cuisine during a market tour and cooking class
  • A great opportunity for solo travelers to socialize 
  • Pick ingredients from a market and cook traditional Italian dishes 
  • Receive recipes by email in order to recreate Tuscan cuisine back home
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in central Florence, and head straight to a local market selling fresh Italian produce. Browse stalls replete with cheese, cured meats, olives, and balsamic vinegar before you select the ingredients required for this cooking class. Board a minibus and travel through the Tuscan hills to a rustic farmhouse, the quaint setting of your cooking class. Prepare seasonal Tuscan dishes that could include roast pork and bruschetta, stopping to enjoy a glasses of Chianti wine as you go. Create a dessert, like a tiramisu, from scratch before sitting down to enjoy the 4-course meal you've cooked. Return to central Florence by minivan and receive all recipes by email.

It was our pleasure to spend the day with Martina & Carmella! I don't want to praise my own cooking skills, but I think the meal we actually cooked with the wonderful help of these two women was one of the best we had in Italy. I'm impressed with myself haha. My partner loved

Carmela & Cris are Fantastic. This was the best part of our Tuscany vacation. 5 Star service, highly recommended. I would attended another class sponsored by them! We attended prior to Covid, in Dec 2019. But the sanitation of the equipment was excellent. Great experience.
