Overview

i offer real hands-on cookery course - also vegetarian - of mostly typical Tuscan farmer's dishes using vegetables and herbs from my garden, eggs from my chicken, meat from my lambs or wild game from surrounding woods. dishes are selected depending on availability of ingredients and are easily reproduced at home for your family or friends. we do from a minimum of 4 to 7 or 8 dishes- depending on number of "cooks" - we do not make home-made pasta because timer-wise this would not allow us to make many other dishes and would reduce our "students" to an on-lookers status. we also do courses for children, provided they can reach over the counter top and are secure in handling knives. our rates (as of Euro 70 depending on type of course and number of participants) incl. 3 hrs. of cooking and dining as well as standard beverages . times: either 1100 to 1400 hrs or 1700 to 2000 hrs. monday through friday or on special request. a special highlight is the extended half day course - 10.00 to 1500 hrs.- which includes a visit to a local street market or other shopping facilities, eventually with a tastings of cheese and cold cuts , balsamico vinegar, local wine etc. - always on Tuesdays or Fridays - Euro 140 per person - We could also go "looking" for the ingredients - meaning a walk in the surrounding meadows and brush in search of wild green asparagus, field salads as well as herbs (in the spring, autumn and winter time) or a "hunt" for wild mushrooms (in autumn). Or simply come and cook - the choice is up to you.

A place that feels at home. Great food, great instruction, great music, great conversation. What an incredible treat. We have been to other cooking classes but nothing remotely close to this. I give it the highest recommendation possible. I cannot wait to go back.
