“It's ready!“ Everyone remembers, as a child, the affectionate cry of a mother or a grandmother who invited all the family members to hurry and sit down at the table because, finally, it was time to eat. In the Tuscan countryside, the call was much more vigorous than normal as it had to reach everyone, from the youngest, busy playing in the backyard with the animals, to the oldest ones, working scattered throughout the fields. Lunch and dinner were certainly the most important moments of the day and those who prepared the meals had great responsibility: providing something hearty and good using the products of their own land, but also scraps from the most valuable harvest, the latter sold for a small profit. Thanks to our cooking classes, you will be the protagonist: inebriated by the smells of seasonal ingredients and with your hands dirty with flour, you will finally be able to shout “È pronto!“ (It’s ready) and savour what you have just cooked together with a good glass of Tuscan wine. Obviously, as in any other Tuscanist experience, our Masters will tell you the stories and anecdotes related to the dishes you will prepare and will reveal the secrets that will allow you to reproduce the same flavours back home, amazing your guests with a real Italian dinner. You can choose to attend cooking classes in Florence or in Siena without leaving the city you are spending your holyday in, or you can decide to escape from the metropolitan chaos to take a half-day or full-day course in a farm in Chianti, Val d’Orcia or Cortona. The most demanding can also take part in one or more lessons given by starred chefs, or book and entire weekend or a full immersion cooking week. And, if cooking is not enough, you will have the opportunity to combine the course with unique experiences such as truffle hunting, practical lessons on cheese production, a horseback ride, a simple walk or a visit to a cellar with wine tasting included.
