Participating in a winter cooking course in Florence represents a delightful and unique culinary experience. Tuscany is known for its rich culinary traditions, and taking a cooking class here during winter can provide you with a deeper understanding of the region's seasonal ingredients and dishes. Here's what you might expect from our Winter Lab:
Seasonal Ingredients: Tuscany has a bounty of seasonal produce and ingredients even during the winter. You may learn to cook with elements like root vegetables, hearty greens, chestnuts and beans, game and meet from local producers. You will have the opportunity to prepare classic Tuscan dishes such as ribollita (a hearty vegetable and bread soup), Tuscan-style roast meats, and pasta dishes featuring locally sourced ingredients.
Hands-On Experience: students actively participate in the preparation of dishes. You'll learn cooking techniques and the art of creating authentic Tuscan flavors. Experienced chefs share their knowledge of Tuscan cuisine, including the history and cultural significance of the dishes you're making.
Local Wine Pairing: Tuscany is renowned for its wines, including Chianti and Vernaccia. Cooking classes include a wine associated to the recipes prepared during every class.
Beautiful Setting: A 16th century building with frescos hosts our laboratories.
Small Group Sizes: from 7 to maximum 15 students per class, to allow for personalized attention and a deeper learning experience.
It's a fantastic way to embrace the local food culture and gain valuable cooking skills while enjoying the beauty of Florence in the wintertime.
