When you think about vacation in Tuscany, what flavour comes to mind? Pizza, steak or pappa al pomodoro? Whatever it may be, after a cooking lesson with our Chef Pasquale the dishes of Tuscan tradition will hold no secrets for you! Lessons in Tuscan cooking are just one of the many activities we are pleased to propose to round out your stay with us!
Cooking lessons at our holiday farm start in the garden! Together, we will harvest seasonal fruits and vegetables; together, we will take them to the kitchen and learn how to transform them into delicious dishes. To every season its own: from summery panzanella bread and tomato salad to hearty ribollita bread and vegetable soup, from castagnaccio chestnut-flour cake to panello con l’uva sweet focaccia filled and topped with wine grapes. Our kitchen has room for everyone, from seniors to little children – and everyone can learn a new trick or two cooking Tuscan specialties!
Our cooking lessons are not pre-planned, because for us the most important ingredients are curiosity and the joy of spending time together! All together, we decide what we are going to do: do you want to learn to cook a classic bistecca alla Fiorentina steak, or prepare the renowned Tuscan crostini neri liver-paté canapés? We’ll build your personal cooking course around your interests, taking into account the time you can spend in the kitchen with us.
