Tuscany Cooking Class


Imagine yourself sitting on a 12th century wall of a medieval village overlooking the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside enjoying a meal of unmatched culinary delight. This unparalleled feast of fresh local delicacies has been prepared by you with the help of one of this region’s premier chefs, Giuseppina and her family. The fresh fare, accompanied by Tuscan wine, will be the culinary experience of a lifetime.

Learning should always be fun

Giuseppina, with over twenty years of cooking class experience is the best teacher. After hosting in our farm for years, in 2009 we opened the cooking studio of our dreams, an intimate romantic setting in the medieval village of Certaldo overlooking the valley and San Gimignano, another jewel of our area.

Tuscany cooking is simple but not easy

We believe good food does not need to be complicated. In fact, the best food is often the simplest. Our recipes and our cooking style reflect this fact. Fresh ingredients, treated simply and with respect, are the foundation of memorable meals.

We believe food should be delicious, and every meal should be a celebration. So when you come to our kitchen, you will not only learn how to execute a menu; you will also learn how it should taste.

Whether you’re a casual cook or a dedicated enthusiast, once you spend time with Giuseppina, you’ll understand it takes more than a recipe to prepare an authentic Italian meal (and why it’s worth it).
