Know More about this tourMeet your host in central Siena and stroll to a private kitchen in the center of town to start your 4-hour Tuscan cooking class. All utensils and equipment are provided for your session, and under the careful eye of your host you’ll learn all about the culinary secrets of Tuscany.
‘Eat local’ is a theme that Tuscans don’t really consider; it’s a concept that’s ingrained in their heritage thanks to the region’s rich abundance of quality ingredients. The countryside around Siena teems with produce: lush olive groves, fragrant sage and rosemary bushes, and hills blanketed with heaving grape vines.
Using these key ingredients, help your host prepare an antipasto feast of breads, cheeses and cured meats – a staple dish in Tuscan restaurants and cafés. Prepare toppings for bruschetta (grilled bread, topped with tomatoes, basil and olive oil) and put together plates of crostini (crispy thin slices of white bread drizzled with extra virgin olive oil).
Learn about Tuscan pici -- a doughy and flavorsome type of egg pasta -- and then make some for yourself. Mix the ingredients and knead the dough before rolling and cutting it into distinctive thick spaghetti strands, and cooking it with a sauce.
Toward the end of your session, sit down with your host and group to eat your creations! The dishes are paired with quality Tuscan wine – carefully selected by your host to complement and accentuate the flavors of the food. Before leaving, your host will give you a recipe card so that you can re-create the food yourself at home to impress friends and family!
