The Gourmet Cooking lesson is a completely hands-on experience, that will allow you to create and enjoy dishes
that you can bring into your daily life.
This course is great for couples, small groups, families with children (from 7 years),and those who want to have fun in the
kitchen learning how to cook traditional Florentine and Italian dishes.
In a practical way, the Chef will demonstrate each to be replicated at your station, to make single-serving
dishes from the menu. At the end, you will enjoy the authentic dishes you created, accompanied by a D.O.C. Tuscan wine
in the Florentine style wine cellar.
The group size is minimum 2 and maximum 8 participants.
Classes are scheduled: From March to November: Tuesday and Thursday at 4:00 pm
