Florence Masterclass

Get in the kitchen with us!

Part of traveling and fully immersing yourself in the culture of another Country, certainly involves learning about the culinary tradition of the place visited. If you are in Italy, and precisely in Florence, you cannot miss our new Cooking Masterclass Experience!

You will take part in this experience with a small group of people who share the passion for food and the desire to become a chef for a day!

So meet our local chef who will be more than happy to share the secrets of Italian cuisine with you. Let yourself be guided through the ancient traditional Florentine bottegas where he himself does the shopping to create his dishes; the colors and smells of the fresh ingredients you will choose together, will surely make your mouth water.

You will also have the opportunity to taste some of these typical products, accompanied by the chef's explanation. Then with a small walk, you will reach the charming cooking location, also located in the historic center of Florence.

Here you will start by putting the apron on and combining the ingredients following the chef's advice. The menu you will prepare usually includes handmade pasta, a typical sauce, a main dish such as Eggplant Parmigiana and a dessert such as the typical almond Tuscan cookies.

Sipping a glass of Tuscan wine, you will slowly see the dishes grow out of your own hands, and what better satisfaction than enjoying a lunch prepared by yourself with lots of love and fun? Savor the dishes you have prepared, enjoying the relaxed and pleasant atmosphere of this small group of people. At the end of your lunch you will receive the best souvenir ever: an Attendance Certificate and a Booklet with the recipes you have learned!

To remember

No matter how brief, it is crucial to take note that any delay cannot be tolerated in arranging your travel plans. Make it a point to arrive on time to ensure that you won't miss out on the full travel experience. Keep in mind that failing to do so will not even entitle you to a partial refund. An adult must always accompany any individual below the age of eighteen; being without one will lead to exclusion of the minor, and there will be no reimbursement. The cooking class is unfortunately not suitable for those with celiac disease, so we apologize for any inconvenience caused. May we ask you to kindly give us a heads up about any dietary restrictions that you might have including food allergies and intolerances? Underage customers will be offered non-alcoholic choices due to Italian law disallowing the selling of alcoholic drinks to those who are below 18 years old. It's important to recognize this regulation. Please let us know before the tour if any clients have unique needs or difficulty with movement, as our tours consist of a lot of walking. We strive to fulfill all requests for special accommodations. On this specific tour, pets are not allowed, so it's important to remember that. The travel arrangements provided may be subject to slight changes as a result of unforeseen operational requirements.
