Private Pasta Making Class & Traditional Tuscan Dishes with a Local in Florence
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Join Patrizia at her family’s apartment located in the center of Florence in a traditional building of the area built in 1759. In your hands-on lesson, Patrizia will teach you traditional Italian dishes from Florence and Italy’s Emilia Romagna Region. You will prepare an appetizer, a first course, typically a fresh pasta like tagliatelle, ravioli, or gnocchi, a second course of meat, and dessert. Patrizia specializes in seasonal dishes that bring out the flavors of the region – in the summer you might enjoy sauces with fresh tomatoes, or in winter months you might enjoy seasonal winter vegetables like artichokes. Your cooking lesson will last about 2 ½ hours; after you finish cooking, sit down together to enjoy your meal and some delicious Italian wine in a local home. Patrizia’s 18-year old daughter may join you for your meal, when she is available.
