Prepare a delicious 4-course meal comprised of traditional Tuscan recipes, in the kitchen of an historic 13th century Tuscan Villa estate.
Discover the secrets behind making a traditional meal of mouth-watering recipes passed down through the chef’s family and comprising only the freshest of in-season Tuscan ingredients.
Suitable for all skill levels, your English-speaking Tuscan chef will guide you through the techniques to prepare a traditional Tuscan menu, including a fabulous starter such as ‘bruschetta’ or onions stuffed with Pecorino cheese, and a traditional Tuscan first course dish like hand-made pasta or gnocchi with a perfectly matched sauce. The second course may be a Chianti Beef Stew or perhaps the traditional Tuscan Orange Duck recipe taken to France by Catherine de’ Medici upon her marriage to the French royal Henry II. And no great Tuscan meal is complete with a traditional Tuscan dessert such as Tuscan Apple Cake or the best Tiramisù you’ve ever had!
To conclude your great culinary activity in Tuscany, you’ll dine on the amazing results - a sumptuous meal served with the estate’s very own traditional Chianti wine and extra-virgin olive oil. With the estate grapevines and olive groves in the surrounds, you’ll be immersed in Tuscan culinary history on this great one-day cookery course.
Also receive a 150-page cook book to take home, ensuring your day out in Tuscany will stay with you forever.
