Cooking Classes: Agriturismo near Siena in Toscana, Buonconvento
Hi, my name is Marcello and after studying culinary arts, along with my working experience as a chef, I decided to cultivate my passion for amazing food with my family at the farm house, where we locally produce organic extra Virgin olive oil, honey and saffron. Because of my passion for only the best cuisine and home grown ingredients I have the desire to share with our guests, who come from all over the world, my culinary knowledge. With my cooking lessons you can easily learn to make and relish some of the most delicious traditional dishes of Italy. You will learn how to prepare them with ease at your own home and surprise your family and friends with your recipes that will impress even the most discerning palates. We will always use fresh products, chosen with care, to give you only the best. With my suggestions you will learn the history of each ingredient that we are going to use so you understand the origins and flavors. You will especially experience the great satisfaction of creating a fantastic dish!
We offer you a choice of 4 menus + a vegetarian menu option If you want a personalized menu` we can accommodate but this will require prior arrangements. Included with the lesson is a cookbook of the recipes we prepare to take home, and an italian wine tasting that includes some local wines from our region. At your preference, the lesson will be in the morning (for lunch) or in the afternoon (for dinner). The duration of the lesson will be of 3 - 4 hour (excluding the time for eating). You have also the possibility to choose to eat in your appartment or in the manor hall with my family.
