Your tour begins in central Florence, where you join up with your guide. Walk to a Florentine food market and peruse the stalls, each teeming with the region’s freshest ingredients, including cured meats, olives, cheeses, balsamic vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes, and other Tuscan delicacies. Select some of these high-quality ingredients for your cooking class later in the afternoon and enjoy tastings of the food and wine.

Climb aboard a minibus and journey into the Tuscan hills and drive to a rustic farmhouse. Under the guidance of an expert chef, prepare a full Tuscan meal. Discover the culinary secrets behind Tuscan cuisine, from slow-cooked meat sauces to whipping up Italian pasta from scratch. Everything you make is seasonal but some dishes include roast pork, bruschetta, and tiramisu.

Finally, reward yourself with your 4-course meal. Complement your delicious food with Tuscan wine and good conversation. Return to central Florence and receive all the recipes by email so you can impress family and friends back at home with your Italian dishes.

Lavinia was a wonderful guide who provided lots of fun and historic information as we strolled through the San Lorenzo market. Carmella guided us step by step as we prepared our delicious meal. I look forward to using the recipes at home!

Such a good experience. Carmela and Olivia (and their helpers) were so entertaining and informative. And such nice people! The food we all made blew me away at how good it was. The people we met were also great ( couple from Germany and newly weds from Brooklyn). My wife and I committed to doing this in our future trips. Thank you Olivia and Carmela!

Perfect Tuscan Day

This tour is the perfect balance of sight seeing, learning about the history of Florence and the cuisine, walking through the Marley, cooking, drinking and eating! Carmella, the head chef, is a darling. The fact that she can’t speak English but you understand her anyways… and her lovely singing were so much fun! The farmhouse and the country side was a dream. This day was a perfect Italian experience 💜

This was so much fun! Martina gave us a really wonderful day. We started in the Central Market where we learned about specialties of the area, and sampled lots of yummy treats. Then, we made our way to the amazing villa just outside the city. Chef Carmella was so gracious in sharing her experience, and making sure we got everything just right. We enjoyed meeting the others in the group. This was a highlight of our visit to Florence! Highly recommend!
