Local Cooking Classes Taught by Local Women

Cook In Tuscany, Women Tuscany Cooking, Cooking Vacation, Separator

If you want to experience Tuscany as a local, experiencing all the beauty, aromas and flavors like a local, then you must visit us.  Our classes immerse you in our local culture where you will enjoy a “once in a lifetime “culinary experience like no other. Cooking and tasting opportunities change daily and with each meal–depending on the season.  Let us change your relationship with food.

Our classes are designed to impart the real flavor of Tuscan cuisine. If you’re looking for professional chefs, you won’t find them here. You will not find any chefs in tall white hats, or electric appliances in our kitchens, no fancy blenders, and there are no food processors used; everything is done by hand. Our cooking school is based on local cooking.

We go to the real source of the cooking traditions. Our classes are taught by local Tuscan women. The mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and wives who know what real traditional Tuscan cooking is all about. The kitchen is busy with wooden spoons and women who look and act like a distant family member. Each woman teaches and entertains differently; each is unforgettable.

Don’t worry…we are with you every minute of the day (and sometimes night) to make sure you are well taken care of.  We worry so you don’t have to!  Enjoy your week knowing you are in our caring hands and we are always nearby if you need something.

Our goal is to make this week one of the best weeks of your life!
