Market Tour & Tuscan Cooking Experience
More than just a cooking class, our Tuscan Cooking Experience goes one step further. Join the owners of the restaurant on a walk around Florence’s local food market to select fresh, seasonal produce. Not only shopping, a visit to the market gives you a firsthand, in-person look into local life and culture in Florence.
On our short walk back to the restaurant we will talk about the ingredients we have chosen and the menu that we will prepare together. Our (restaurant’s) philosophy focuses on tradition and getting back to the roots of authentic Florentine cuisine. As such, we will share some of the recipes passed down through generations of our family. Furthermore, we will give you insights into the cooking techniques that with respect to tradition enhance and highlight the quality and flavors inherent in the ingredients.
Together we will prepare a four course meal; appetizer, handmade pasta, main course and dessert. The menu will be based on seasonal traditions and the availability of fresh produce.
After all of your ‘hard’ work, sit down, relax and savor the fruits of your labor. Enjoy your four course lunch with a selection of traditional Tuscan wines.
