Together with your hosts you will prepare a 4-course dinner including typical regional dishes and locally sourced produce. You may start by toasting fresh bread for an Italian classic, bruschetta, followed by tagliatelle, ravioli or gnocchi using eggs from the farm. Or, roll out your own pizza base and add your favourite toppings
This is a leisurely experience so take a break to taste your foods and sample regional Chianti before cracking on with the main course of roast pork and tiramisu for dessert.
After dining you'll be driven back to Central Florence, you'll get to keep your apron as a souvenir of the Tuscan cooking class.
