Tuscan cooking lessons
Joining the cooking lessons means taking home the wholesome taste of Tuscany. When you prepare traditional recipes, you share the passion for cooking and the value of the conviviality that comes with a good meal. Sharing family recipes goes beyond teaching how to prepare a dish; it is a way to socialise and spread the value of Tuscan bonhomie. The recipes change according to the availability of the ingredients that the area offers with the changing of the seasons.
