What you'll do

Master the treasured art of Tuscan by learning to create truly authentic, traditional dishes in a 13th-century villa, and learn some local secrets for cooking the truly Italian way.

Impress even the most experienced ‘foodies’ after taking this amazing Tuscan immersion cooking course. Ideal for those who want to return home with an expansive collection of Italian recipes, you’ll discover a wide range of innovative Tuscan specialities.

You will learn from a local professional chef how to prepare a decadent Italian meal that pulls out all the stops, using only the best ingredients, just as the Italians do.

Once you’ve arrived at the villa, your cooking lesson begins. You’ll learn to make Italian breads, risotto and stuffed pastas such as ravioli and lasagne. You will learn how to colour pasta, make the delicious sauces from fresh ingredients produced on the school’s estate, and create dishes that really encapsulate that Italian passion for good, simple recipes and incredible meals.

Classes are taught in a fun and relaxed style, everyone will muck in with your fellow guests to create the dishes together rather than on your own. You’ll each have a go at making your own pasta, and the feel of the cooking class is typically Italian as cooking in Italy is a great way to socialise and we all know that food is best shared.

The menu will consist of at least 5 courses, all unique in flavour and in the skills you will learn from them, and when it is ready you and your fellow would-be cooks will sit down with the chef and eat the delicious Italian food you have prepared, accompanied by a glass of wine produced on the school’s estate.
