Florence cooking school: the list of cooking classes in Florence Italy

Cuisine in Italy is equal to art. To get a real grasp of Italian culture, you must understand the Italian style of preparing and serving food and drinks. The Florence Cooking schools we'll introduce you to are the best places to learn.

Most dishes you can find on the menus at good Italian restaurants are nothing but real masterpieces. Have you ever tasted the world-famous tagliatelle al tartufo, ragù alla bolognese, melanzane alla parmigiana, or bistecca alla fiorentina? 

You can't leave Florence without sampling all the best Italian flavors...and you (definitely!) can't go back home without learning how to prepare the great classics of Italian cuisine like: spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino, lasagna, pasta al pomodoro, insalata caprese, tiramisù, a good espresso or the real limoncello.

And don't get us started on fabulous Italian wines like Chianti, Barbera, and Lambrusco; or about Italian cocktails made with Martini, Campari, Cinzano, or Amaretto di Saronno.

Enjoy the best Florence cooking class studies and...buon appetito ( discover all the cooking classes in Italy in English).
