Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, but is packed with tourists most of the year. Escape the crowds and experience the quiet Tuscan countryside with this villa cooking class just outside the city. Prepare classic Florentine dishes with a local chef, and then relax over a four-course lunch with wine on the villa’s panoramic terrace. With transportation included, you skip the hassle of navigating in and out of Florence yourself.
  • Prepare four courses of Tuscan dishes from appetizer to dessert
  • The relaxed atmosphere of a private villa outside Florence
  • A meal on the villa’s scenic terrace after your small-group lesson
  • Avoid the hassle of driving with round-trip transportation from Florence

Delicious Respite from the City
, Oct 2019
Antonella and Paolo were wonderful hosts and we would 100% recommend it to anyone. Getting out of Florence into the stunning outskirts turned into one of our favourite days. We were collected from the central train station which made it an easy excursion. Greeted by two lovely pups at the property we immediately felt at ease as we had a glass of wine offered to us. We made four delicious courses on the day which we ate out on the shaded terrace with the most amazing views over Tuscan hills with Florence in the distance. We were returned to the city centre at a convenient location and were so relaxed we were like jelly. Antonella will be sending us the recipes from the day and we will be recreating them! Thank you. Grazie mille. :) Emma and Sam.

What a wonderful experience !! Class is held in a private villa, 20 minutes from the train station. The 200 year old villa is located in the hilly region with a spectacular view of the city. The hosts, Paulo and Antonella, are charming and accommodating. We were fortunate that only my wife and I were in attendance, however it would still be a lot of fun with more couples. The chef, Eduordo, was great ! He spoke excellent English, and his instruction was clear, concise, and entertaining. We made a four course meal from scratch, and were able to enjoy it on the terrace with a bottle of wine and a beautiful view of the vast landscape. Meal included, zucchini soufflé, fresh made pasta noodles, fresh tomato sauce, balsamic chicken over salad greens and fresh fruit, and tiramisu . Our favorite meal of our trip. We highly recommend this class - 10 STARS - also you keep the recipes so that you can impress your friends back home

Cooking with Antonella & Paolo
, May 2019
We were picked up at the train station in Florence and transported to a beautiful Italian villa 30 minutes away. It turns out, this is also a bed and breakfast in the countryside - LaPaggeria. Antonella and Paulo - the husband and wife owners of the B&B and cooking instructors, were both wonderful. The menu was selected by Antonella and was perfect - Bresaola and ricotta rolls over salad greens, ricotta & zucchini soufflé, homemade tagliatelle with fresh tomato and basil sauce, fillet of pork with plums, tiramisu and of course wine - we were in Italy after all. The view from the terrace where we ate our delicious lunch was spectacular. Planning to go back again, this time staying at the B&B, which also has a pool. I would definitely recommend this class to both experienced and novice cooks.

 Thank you for this wonderful review, I am very happy that you and your children have been good with us but above all with our kitchen, I hope in the future to be able to host you again in my B&B I wait for you! Antonella
Cocinando en la Toscana

Fue una linda experiencia, no solo aprender a cocinar platos típicos de la Toscana, sino también compartir una tarde con personas tan encantadoras como Antonella y Paolo. Aprendimos sus trucos, compartimos unos vinos, disfrutamos de la hermosa vista que tiene la villa y quedamos felices con la experiencia vivida. Recomiendo esta experiencia al 100% y, si hubiera sabido que tienen en su casa un B&B, nos hubiéramos hospedado allí mismo.

Gracias John y Adriana. por su agradable comentario, espero que cocinen nuestras recetas, también pasamos un buen día en su compañía y esperamos volver a verlos algún día ... ¡tal vez delante de un buen plato! Gracias por estar con nosotros. Antonella
