Full-Day Optional Cooking Class: "Wanna Be Italiano" Cooking Class

(Tour #242):

Half-Day Tour
Please inquire with reservations.


This cooking class is truly unique and special. Why? Because this special cooking class and meal is prepared and cooked in an authentic ITALIAN HOUSE. You will be taught the secrets of Italian cuisine from a real, authentic Italian chef, and in a setting which is away from the bustling Tuscan/Italian tourist restaurants.

You'll meet the chef at morning, and you'll learn how to prepare and cook a delicious authentic Tuscan meal right here in the heart of Florence! This class is special and offered as a view into typical Tuscan cuisine.

First step is grocery shopping at the Central Market. Yes, you'll go shopping with the chef at the Central Market, picking out the ingredients for your meal (all food is included in the cost of this package). You will meet the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens. You will learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients, and as an added bonus, how to bargain! You'll taste and experience local food and wines.

After this fun experience, you will head for the home-like professional location, which is a fascinating typical Tuscan setting just a few steps from the Central Market, and your cooking lesson will begin. You'll be provided with your own apron and cooking utensils to use. You'll learn how to prepare your own authentic Italian/Tuscan meal, consisting of bruschetta, homemade fresh pasta, along with a main course and tiramisu (or other dessert) --- all accompanied with a selection of Chianti wines. You had better be an attentive student while the Chef is teaching, because you will be eating your own food creations at the end of the class!

Before departing, you will be presented with an "Official Certificate", which you can take back home to show your family and friends! The class will end mid-afternoon.
