Tuscan cooking class

Tasting and food

Learn how to prepare local traditional dishes in pure Tuscan style, just like the grandmothers still do everyday in Valdichiana Senese

The Tuscan way of life told through food. Together with the local housewives, you will undertake a typical local cooking course: you will learn how to prepare dishes that are simple and tasty at the same time. All the ingredients of the course are selected according to seasonality and focusing on local zero-miles productions.

For first, you'll prepare "bruschette" and croutons of various types: with tomatoes and basil or with Tuscan extra virgin olive oil.  Then, you'll continue by mixing water and flour to make the "Pici", namely the famous handmade pasta typical of the Province of Siena, then an excellent sauce, and finally a delicious homemade dessert.

Between a preparation and the other, a glass of wine will always be waiting for you.

At the end of the course, the table will be set and the freshly cooked dishes will be served. You'll only have to taste them, paired with local wines. A rural experience to discover the traditional Tuscan cuisine, to be enjoyed in a farmhouse, on a farm, or in a "Trattoria".
