Join this 4-hour of Tuscan cooking class in Siena. The school was the first school of international cuisine born in Siena, founded in 1996.
The lessons will be held by Lella, the owner of the cooking school, that has always been a passionate researcher into old texts on cookery, and her lessons combine a mixture of both ancient and family recipes, coupled with only the healthiest and most authentic local ingredients.
The menu is not always the same, but every time we prepare 5-6 recipes, for example:
Bruschetta (toasted bread with topping) or garlic bread
Pappa col pomodoro (a traditional soup)
Pici with Cinta Senese sauce (a typical fresh pasta with a meat sauce)
Tagliata di Chianina con tortino di verdure (meat cut 'Chianina' with vegetable pie)
Typical cakes from Siena (Panforte, Ricciarelli, etc.)
Of course we can choose between various starters, soups, fresh pastas with related condiments, ravioli, gnocchi and pici. For example, there can be a main course of meat or fish with side dishes made with fresh vegetables in season. Desserts can be typical from Tuscany, or typical of other Italian regions.
At the end of each lesson, the meal is served with the food prepared during the lesson and is accompanied by ¼ of excellent Chianti wine per person.
Lella teaches how to prepare a full Tuscan menù from starter to dessert including a fresh home-made pasta.
Small-group cooking class with a maximum of 15 people ensures a personalized experience.
