What You'll Do
  • Join a hands-on cooking class in the Tuscan countryside
  • Have lunch or dinner together
  • Enjoy a wine tasting
Overview
Enjoy live authentic Italian moments in the Tuscan countryside and learn the secrets of Tuscan cuisine. After your hands-on cooking class you will enjoy the food you have prepared together with a good glass of wine.
What to Expect
Simonetta introduces you to her kitchen, full of books, spices, jars full of dried fruit and naturally with her pots and pans hanging from the wall, because there is no room left. Cooking courses are a full immersion in her lifestyle, a mix of food and culture, but also of practicality. Learn to make dishes which you can easily reproduce at your home, and you will amaze yourselves creating ravioli, fresh pasta, gnocchi, pizza.

Simonetta will teach you the simple but important tricks of everyday cooking, such as how to substitute an ingredient at the last moment, but what really counts is to have a passion for food and some fresh herbs at hand. The dishes are those of traditional Tuscany, such as duck seasoned with wild fennel, meat ragout, pici, tagliatelle with tomato sauce, cantucci biscuits, but also Renaissance dishes, such as duck with orange sauce and carabaccia, taken to France by Caterina De Medici in the XVth century, and then gained popularity as the famous Soup à l'Oignon.

Included are the classic dishes of Italian cooking, such as Pizza, Ricotta Cheese and Spinach Ravioli, potato Gnocchi, stockfish salad, and many more! Participants can be from one to a maximum of eight people, all working with the ingredients to create the final dish, all following the various steps and being allowed to taste. After the cooking course comes the best time - to eat the food, and so “tutti a tavola”, together with a good glass of wine.
