Italy Cooking Tours: Authentic Italian Food & Wine
Our Italy cooking tours delve into the sunny and abundant region of Tuscany, where mouthwatering wines and savory truffles are matched only by the beauty of the surrounding landscapes. We’ll spend five days exploring the region’s cuisine with an immersive ragu cooking class, delightful wine and cheese tastings, and more.
Dating back to ancient times, Italy’s cuisine draws on traditional flavors and local availability, and is deliciously simple in its character. Italian food is famous for its hearty flavors, sumptuous pastas, and dedication to quality by using the freshest of ingredients. Regional diversity is also a hallmark of Italian cuisine, with each area offering a variety of flavors and preparation.
During your Italian cooking class you’ll prepare a four-course meal with antipasto, local pici pasta with ragu, a traditional Tuscan main course and a delicious desert. Don’t feel like cooking? Pour yourself a glass of wine and keep the chefs company. Your other class is delicious in a different way. Working with a local bartender, you’ll learn to make Italian cocktails with the local gelato and sortbets of the day. Such a fun way to end the day!
Our Italy cooking tours include daily breakfasts, three lunches, many tastings along the way, and a sumptuous farewell dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
