COOKING CLASS IN TUSCANY
My suggestion is: “Learn to cook in Italy and you'll bring home the experience of Dolce Vita”
Maybe cooking vacations in Italy or a culinary course are too long for you, so why not enjoy a cooking lesson in Chianti for an afternoon followed by a convivial “al fresco” dinner with good wine in a friendly environment?
This is the perfect way to learn to cook delightful Tuscan cuisine in a young and informal atmosphere. With a Tuscany cooking lesson you will experience a true hands-on cooking course in Tuscany.
Later, we will set the table and then....everybody enjoy the meal! No partecipants to the cooking class also welcome to join for lunch/dinner.
