Discover the gastronomy of Florence by shopping at the local markets for the best produce. Meet the local vendors, cook with your own hands and taste all that you have prepared while enjoying a glass of wine.
We start the day at 9.30am with a food market visit followed by a leisurely walk through the old town, back to the cooking school, where we will make pasta , ravioli and various sauces.
When the cooking is done, we will enjoy our meal which will include an aperitif and tasting the dishes we prepared accompanied with wine, and we will end the day at around 3pm.
Our well-equipped cooking space is located in the old part of Florence known for its charm and beauty. We are a few steps away from Palazzo Pitti with its vast Boboli gardens and very close to Porta Romana.
This was a high point of our stay I think everyone will fall for the love of cooking that Anna has, we did .My daughter and I had a great day with Anna and Celine, the day started with a coffee and cake then to the market after Anna drove back with the produce while we walked the short route though the Historic centre with Celine. We were very impressed with the smart school kitchen and started to learn the right way to make pasta. I think I am a good cook and was very impressed with the skill and speed of Anna and her tips for cooking. After being told my daughters pasta dough was better than mine I really welcomed the Prosecco and anti pasta before we ate our 2 pasta dishes with wine Anna then produced a pork dish and spinach and pine nuts then a semi freddo.then biscuits and cofffe ..The next day I sort out Bartolini `s shop and got a cutter and pasta mill So you can teach an old Dad like me some new tricks I have maked several batches of the semi freddo and pasta now We loved our lesson and recommend it as a great to do in Florence.
I spent a great day together with this very passionate chef. The day started with an interesting food shopping at the market (Sant'Ambrogio market); although I'm an italian girl I've enjoyed it very much. Anna will guide you to buy the perfect ingredients for the success of your recipe! With stops in Florence historical center, then the chef have guided us to the cooking school, where we've learned how to cook traditional pasta and different italian sauces! It was amazing to discover all the secrets.
