Cuisine – Tastes of Tuscany

An integral part of Tuscany is the brilliant Italian cuisine. For Italians food is a very important part of their lives. That’s why they spend half the day having a siesta enjoying and celebrating eating. On our golf tours you will have the opportunity to celebrate delicious Italian food, not only in a typical restaurant but also in small familiy winery or incredible castle/villa that serve simple but delicious food. Our little surprise will be an opportunity for you to take part in a cooking-course, where under the watchful eye of a professional cook you can explore Italian cuisine.

Italian cooking classes in Tuscany for gourmet lovers

Italy is the country of good food. Every region offers different dishes and ingredients are used differently. Tuscany, for example, has a “rustic” cuisine: vegetable soups and old bread stirred for a long time (ribollita), many different types of pastas with hundreds of different sauces on them, grilled slices of bread with extra-virgin olive oil or chopped fresh tomatoes (bruschetta: please pronounce with “K”)… Extra virgin olive oil is obtained at low temperatures from the first olives pressed and is therefore known as “cold press”. It can change the favor of a recipe completely. One of the most interesting and fascinating experiences in Tuscany is taking part in a cooking class. Tuscan cuisine is based on simple but tasty recipes belonging to rooted traditions and coming from wise farming. We give you the opportunity to discover all the secrets of Tuscan food in interesting and informative cooking classes organized for you at a traditional Tuscan farm. Our cook prepares exactly the meals that Tuscans eat at home, using the same fresh and genuine ingredients with the help of very useful tricks. The duration of the classes ranges from 2 to 3 hours and they can be arranged in the morning or in the evening, before you sit at a table and enjoy all the delicacies you have prepared. The preparation of your dinner or lunch includes a couple of starters, two main courses (primo and secondo according to the Italian tradition) with side dishes and a dessert. During the following meal, local red or white wines will be served as well. During all the experience, there will be a friendly and helpful assistant speaking English (on request also German, Spanish, French, Italian or Russian) ready to answer any question of yours. Remember that you can combine our cooking classes with any other activity of Under The Tuscan Sun Tours.
