A full day hands-on Cooking Class in a stunning setting in the Tuscan countryside, including a

market visit topped off with a 4-course lunch.

beautiful Tuscan farmhouse in the countryside. On arrival be prepared to roll up your sleeves,

you will start creating a complete menu, from appetizer to dessert.

family. The cooking lesson is suitable for beginners and for those who can already cook.

Luca and Carmela were by far the best hosts, teachers and chefs. The entire group on the tour participated no one person was excluded. We learned so much in this hands on class. Luca is funny and engaging while Carmela sings and dances her way into your heart even if it’s all in Italian.
