Tuscany Cooking Class

Like anything important, our Culinary School in Italy has evolved over time just like the best Tuscan Spezzatino that needs to sit on the stove bubbling over a low flame and have Chianti Wine added every now and then. We have a great team of dedicated people around us, our wonderful clients (though we would prefer to call them friends; you can check our page on Facebook) and a true passion for cooking has really made our Italian Culinary School successful. We do add a little Chianti now and again.

We believe in traditional food , Authentic Tuscan cuisine , original recipes and offer hands-on cooking lessons. Learning through fun and immersing yourself in a historic setting is definitely the best way to take the Taste of Tuscany home with you. All of our chefs are native Italians and speak English, so understanding would not be a problem. Even if they did not, it is amazing on what you can get across by just using hand gestures, a pot, a knife, some ingredients ,lots of laughs and a good bottle of wine.
