Semi-Private Florence Food Tour and Cooking Masterclass

€ 219.00

Available April to October
Go shopping with your Chef at the local street market and visit the ancient bottegas in Oltrarno district to find the traditional grocery shops and then learn how to cook the Tuscan specialties - for real - during this VIP cooking class!

Discover the gastronomic heritage of Florence using your senses, taste traditional foods and become an expert in the art of Tuscan cuisine! Meet your chef and follow him on a fun "Food Quest" through the charming streets of the heart of Florence to the Oltrarno district.
Your expert and entertaining Chef will take you to the most picturesque grocery stores, letting you know the best of the ancient Florentine bottegas.
This is where gourmets and local chefs do their shopping! Browse the shops, getting lost in the delicious aromas and sensational flavors. During the walk, the Chef will invite you to savor delicious specialties, as well as guide you to choose the ingredients to be used for your cooking class.

With a short walk you will then reach our cooking class facility, a delightful location in the city center. Aprons on! Follow the instructions of your skilled Chef and learn how to prepare the delicious traditional dishes to perfection: the menu will generally include home-made hand-rolled pasta, a tasty pasta sauce, a traditional main dish such as Eggplant Parmigiana and a dessert, too, like almond Tuscan cantuccini (typical Tuscan dry biscuits) to dip into sweet Vinsanto wine.

Knead the dough and realize a fragrant home-made pasta, roll out a perfect potato Gnocchi or learn how using a pestle to crush fresh basil and pine-nuts into a flavorful olive oil Pesto! 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 Tuscan wine to relish the best Tuscan meal ever: the one you have just prepared with your own handsin the heart of historic Florence.

Beloved by gourmands, foodies and taste-devotees in general, our VIP Small-Group Cooking Masterclass will get you straight into the Tuscan Paradise of the Gastronomy, in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere and with the privilege of the dedicated attention of a professional Chef.
At the end of the experience receive a full Recipe Booklet, a fabolous souvenir which will allow you to share the recipes you learned with your friends and family at your home.
