Cooking Classes

With the help of OUR HOUSEWIVES, you will discover the unique flavours of the local cuisine, gaining a complete insight into our way of life, which is fully expressed in the traditional dishes that you will learn to make with your own hands.

You can’t say you really know an area until you have tasted its culinary specialities. And more than others, Tuscan gastronomic heritage is rooted in the rurality of a land of ancient traditions. Everything is based on simple dishes, made with produce from local farms and the neighbouring countryside. What better way to learn directly about typical Tuscan flavours than to take a cooking class at our Agriturismo, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards? After the practical lesson, in which some traditional recipes are prepared, the cooking class continues with a delicious convivial meal in which the dishes made by the participants are brought to the table. The menu? To begin with, the king of Tuscan antipasti: crostini spread with traditional sauce. This is followed by Pici, thick handmade spaghetti made with a very special technique. It is no coincidence that pici and the art of “appiciare” (making pici) have entered the National Inventory of the Italian Agrifood Heritage. Course participants will learn how to make Aglione della Val di Chiana sauce to serve with the pici. “Aglione” looks like a special kind of giant garlic but it actually belongs to the leek family and is grown mainly in this area. And for dessert, nothing could be better than classic Cantucci to be dipped in Vin Santo, a special and highly prized Tuscan sweet wine.
What more is there to add? Ah, yes: buon appetito!
