The food and wine tour in Florence or/and also Florence city tour can end with a fun culinary experience!
After Florence guided tour to discover its squares and main buildings and to hear stories and legends about the families who ruled it for centuries, we will dedicate ourselves completely to Tuscan and Italian food to understand its origins and discover curiosities and anecdotes on local culinary traditions.
You will taste typical Tuscan drinks and foods and you will discover where the best bars, trattorias and places of Florentine street food are hidden; and if you still haven’t had enough of it then you can continue this experience “in the kitchen”!
You can learn to cook some of the most traditional and tasty Tuscan and Italian recipes with this cooking class in a professional cooking school or in a typical Florentine home and teach the techniques you have learned to your friends at home!
The fastest and most interesting way to fully understand a foreign culture is to know its food and even better is to learn how to cook it!
You can choose whether to participate to these cooking lessons in Florence professional cooking schools with an expert chef or if you prefer to have a more informal experience and cook with a local at his/her house.
He/She will explain to you what the most common recipes, techniques and ingredients of our kitchen are, as well as reveal some little secrets and tricks that you can put into practice yourself to make a perfect dish.
After this brief introduction, equipped with a chef’s apron, you will begin the “dirty work” and participate in the making of a full Italian meal consisting in 4/5 courses: few appetizers, the first course that usually includes fresh pasta with a sauce, the second course made of meat or vegetables with side dish and last but not least the dessert.
The ingredients you will use are all fresh ingredients from small local producers and will be selected according to seasonality, so as to savor their authentic and natural taste. Remember that this is a 100% personalized gastronomic experience that will be arranged according to your tastes and desires. There will be different menu options so that you can pick the one you like the most and in case of any allergy or other food preferences you can choose among many delicious Italian vegetarian recipes.
After the cooking class in Florence, you will be ready to enjoy the fruits of your labor: you will sit at the table and taste the dishes you have cooked accompanied by excellent local wines.
