      Italian Cooking Class

      Cooking classes are held on request, usually in the morning, and are followed by lunch, where guests can enjoy the dishes they have just prepared. Each class lasts from 3 to 4 hours.

      Cooking classes are hosted by Paola, and whilst they are not 'professional', they offer a true insight into traditional homestyle Tuscan cooking, allowing you to learn how to make typical Italian dishes for you to share with your family and friends when you return home. On request I am pleased to arrange cooking lessons for specific purposes and for larger groups.

      Prices are in accordance with the type of course, group size and content of the class. As a guide, based on 2 people taking part, the price is 65 euros per person for one 4-5 hour class included all the ingredients.


      Classes are held in the fully equipped kitchen of your apartment.
