Cooking Classes - Tuscan Cuisine

Tuscan cuisine has a long tradition passed down through the centuries from mother to daughter, father to son, family to family. Whatever the course - antipasti, primi, secondi or dolce, everything is prepared with the greatest care, quality, and fresh ingredients. Responding to the wishes of many of our guests who enjoy the culinary delights on offer here, we too are now passing on the secrets of Tuscan cuisine. You will have a great time learning to prepare a typical Tuscan meal and choose the right wine or grappa to go with it – and you’ll be speaking Italian the whole time without even noticing it!
