Wanna Be Italiano - Florence Cooking Class and Market Tour

€ 119.00

Simpy the best Florence cooking class: hands-on, year-round and located in the heart of town - and with wine included, of course!

The Topmost Florence Cooking Class!
Without false modesty, "Wanna Be Italiano" is the most popular and sought after cooking class in Florence and our loyal customers confirm it season after season! This experience will immerse you in the true Tuscan flavors, while teaching you the art of preparing a mouth-watering meal thanks to the help of an expert and charismatic chef.

First of all you will briefly walk to Florence's central food market. The "Mercato Centrale" is the city's largest, most lively and colorful grocery market, a huge bazaar plenty with delicacies! Guided by the experience of your chef, you will examine the counters of the local vendors and directly choose the best raw materials for the meal you will prepare: talk to the vegetable vendors, the butchers and the bakers and learn how to select the best! Groceries in hand, take a short walk to our cooking class facility, an enchanting location that will make you feel at ease and as a welcome, you will enjoy a tasting of typical delicacies before starting the real lesson.

Aprons on! Learn from your skilled chef all the secrets of making exquisite traditional dishes: crispy bruschetta, fresh hand-rolled pasta, tasty pasta sauces and dessert, too. Mince, measure, mix - and above all taste yourself - to get the sauces and seasonings well done - and finally sit down and sip a good glass of Chianti wine. Here, the time has come to taste the best Tuscan meal ever: the one you have just prepared with your own hands in the heart of historic Florence.
At the end of the lesson you will receive a Cooking Class Attendance Certificate, as well as a complete Recipe Booklet to share the recipes you learned with your friends and family at home.

*The Menu of the Cooking class varies slightly according to the season but will generally include bruschetta, hand-made pasta, pasta sauce and a dessert.
