Shop your own ingredients then roll up your sleeves and get cooking…

Join us for this cozy home-cooking experience set in the Tuscan kitchen of a local chef – and learn Italian cooking skills that you can use again and again back home! This charming afternoon starts in Florence’s Oltrarno neighbourhood and ends with you tucking in to your own creations.

You’ll shop your own ingredients at family-run eateries and pick herbs from a rooftop terrace.  Then it’s time to put on your apron, roll up your sleeves and begin preparing your feast.

The experience ends with a giant family-style lunch with your new friends, where you’ll enjoy your own cooking with plenty of perfectly paired wine.

This was by far our favorite thing we did in our entire Italy trip! The class was well organized, fun, and DELICIOUS!! My husband and I learned so much about how to make great pasta and sauces. We can’t wait to try the recipes at home.
