Be immersed in culinary history on this great one-day cookery course in Tuscany.
In the kitchen of a historic 13th century Tuscan Villa estate, learn the culinary secrets behind the world-famous Tuscan cuisine as you prepare an unforgettable traditional 5-course meal.
With an English-speaking Tuscan chef on hand to guide you step-by-step, you’ll discover cooking techniques passed down through the generations.
From beginners to experts, this hands-on cookery course offers a great thing to do in Tuscany.
Using only the freshest of in-season ingredients, you'll learn to prepare dishes such as a mouth-watering starter like Focaccia or stuffed zucchini flowers, two traditional first course dishes such as hand-made pasta with a perfectly matched sauce and a delicious risotto. The second course may be a Chianti Beef Stew or perhaps a Tuscan classic like Etruscan Chicken. And no great Tuscan meal is complete with a traditional dessert - for example, Panna Cotta with chocolate sauce or the best Tiramisù you’ve ever had!
You’ll then dine on the delicious meal you’ve prepared throughout the Tuscan cooking class. Lunch is served with the estate’s very own traditional Chianti wine and extra-virgin olive oil.
Also receive a signature apron, as well as a 150-page cook book to take home, ensuring your day out in Tuscany will stay with you forever!
