We're sorry, this tour or activity is not available for selected date.
All necessary equipment included
Meet your host in central Siena and stroll to a private kitchen in the countryside to start your 4-hour Tuscan cooking class. All utensils and equipment are provided for your session, and under the careful eye of your host you’ll learn all about the culinary secrets of Tuscany.
‘Eat local’ is a theme that Tuscans don’t really consider; it’s a concept that’s ingrained in their heritage thanks to the region’s rich abundance of quality ingredients. The countryside around Siena teems with produce: lush olive groves, fragrant sage and rosemary bushes, and hills blanketed with heaving grape vines.
Using these key ingredients, help your host prepare an antipasto preparing toppings for bruschetta (grilled bread, topped with tomatoes, basil and olive oil).
Then learn about Tuscan handmade pasta and then make some for yourself. Mix the ingredients and knead the dough before rolling and cutting it into distinctive thick spaghetti strands, and cooking it with a sauce.
Toward the end of your session, sit down with your host and group to eat your creations! The dishes are paired with quality Tuscan wine – carefully selected by your host to complement and accentuate the flavors of the food. Learn all the tips and secrets from your chef so that you can re-create the food yourself at home to impress friends and family!
At the end of the class our driver you take you back to central Siena where your tour will end.
