Meet your guide in Florence and head straight to the Central Market to purchase ingredients and sample some local delicacies. After stocking up on fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs, transfer to your cooking class venue, a historic villa set amid the vineyards and olive groves of Tuscany’s Chianti wine region.
On arrival, set to work cooking traditional Tuscan dishes such as ravioli gnudi with fresh hand-made pasta, and pick up plenty of tips from your expert instructor, Chef Giovanni. Before you eat, enjoy a fascinating introduction to Chianti wine and discover the winemaking process, the different varietals, and how to match wines with various Tuscan dishes.
Finally, sit down to enjoy a delicious 4-course homemade meal, paired with a selection of three different Chianti wines—typically a Chianti reserve, a Chianti Classico and a Tuscan dessert wine—and an indulgent dessert like strawberry tiramisu.
After lunch, you will be taken back to Florence.
