Cooking in Florence with renowned Chef Giovanni

Our half day cooking course in Florence with our very talented and engaging chef, Chef Giovanni, is the highlight of many visitor's trips to Florence.  Our half day classes are small and intimate and offer a hands-on experience with the preparation and cooking of typical Tuscan cuisine.

During each lesson, Chef Giovanni uses fresh, seasonal products from Tuscany- extra virgin olive oil, fresh herbs and produce, and meat, poultry and fish (from the Tuscan coast).

Every student will participate in all aspects of the meal including, if you want to join the Chef, a trip to Florence's famed Marcato Centrale to buy the ingredients.

The full menu includes antipasto, pasta, a main dish and side dish, and, of course, dessert.   Naturally, the epitome of the day's labors comes when you sit down with your fellow students to enjoy the meal, which will be accompanied by a selection of delicious Tuscany wines.

We can accommodate vegetarians on this tour, as there is plenty of Tuscan cuisine made exclusively with vegetables.

This tour is a true Florentine highlight and is one of our top picks in Florence for five years straight.

To join our tour with chef Giovanni, write us at: or call one of our toll free numbers in Italy or abroad. We look forward to seeing you in Florence soon!
