Food Shops & Hands on Cooking Class



Simonetta & Paola, passionate for food and wine, we’ll guide you in the land of “Chianti “. We will take you to discover typical small Italian food shops to get a true cultural experience. We shop at the single purpose shop: Alimentari, Macelleria or Fruttivendolo.
Then we drive back to our villa for the cooking class. The hands-on class covers traditional, home-style Tuscan and Italian recipes. We cook and eat dishes prepared using fresh, natural ingredients. A complete meal (3 recipes) such as a pasta dish, a vegetable or meat dish and then a dessert is prepared and accompanied by the wine which best complements it.
