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.
Arianna 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 farm is a wonderful estate in the area of the Pisan hills, between Pisa and Volterra. 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 lunch or dinner 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.
