Historic Bottegas FOOD TOUR

Cooking Lesson in the Heart of Florence Back

  • Tour Code : TUR-01486
  • Type : Small Group
  • Duration : 6.0 Hours
  • Meeting Place : Florencetown Tours & News Stand - Piazza della Repubblica (next to the APPLE STORE under the loggias, corner with Via Pellicceria)
  • Tour Start Time

    Morning Departure: 09:00 AM


Your experience will start with a shopping trip through the old bottegas of the old town with our resident chef*.  Here you'll learn about typical Tuscan ingredients, have a taste of some of the local products and buy everything you'll need for your cooking lesson.

This is a hands-on class, so after a few instructions, you'll get straight down to work, chopping, mixing and kneading, to prepare  the delicious dishes Florentine housewives have been making for centuries.

Sample menu (the actual menu may vary slightly depending on the season and the availability of ingredients):

  • typical home-made pasta from scratch like Potato Gnocchi, with a hand-made Pesto sauce
  • delicious eggplant Parmigiana
  • Cantuccini (typical Tuscan dry biscuits to dip into Tuscan dessert wine Vinsanto).

Finally, sit down to a lunch of your delicious creations, with some of the finest Tuscan wines.

All participants receive a recipe booklet, which includes everything you have made, so you can amaze your friends and families with your new-found cooking skills when you return home.

*Please note that when the Bottegas are closed, there will be a special introduction and extra tastings at the cooking school instead.

Client Testimonials

There are no words to describe the fabulous time we had in Italy. Everything went as you promised. Absolutely no problems! The venues were fabulous. The guides were punctual and helpful. It couldn't have worked out better. You and your staff deserve high praise for the quality and efficiency of your work. BTW, Guiseppe was an absolute delight. We enjoyed his informative and effervescent personality he was a hit with our group. The serenading was an added bonus! Our stay in Calabria went well too. Thank you for all your work and coordination for making this dream come true for us! If any of us travel there again, you will surely be hearing from us. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as well. Ciao for now,
