What to Expect
Begin your day with a walk to the Florence farmers' market to experience the atmosphere of this authentic venue where butchers, bakers, and produce vendors sell their goods to local residents.

You’ll be welcomed with a taste of typical Tuscan products and a glass of prosecco wine, before getting into the flour and the day’s fresh ingredients, and beginning your hands-on cooking lesson.
The menu may slightly vary depending on the season and the fresh ingredients available, but among other items, it will typically include making home-made pasta from scratch.
Your class ends with a delicious lunch that will demonstrate your improved skills in the kitchen. Your meal will be accompanied by tastings of different regional wines and finally a typical Tuscan dessert wine.
