The living kitchen

An Educational Journey Through Traditional Tuscan Recipes

WHY

“Always remember that a great chef does not exist without a farmer, who deeply knows and respects the land” Carlo Petrini, founder of the International Slow Food Movement

You will begin your culinary experience at the sources, having the unique opportunity to learn directly from experienced producers about the origin and the value of raw ingredients. You will then move into the kitchen, where local chefs will teach you how to best use and combine them in order to create fabulous “farm to table” recipes. Are you ready to create “hands-on” your perfect Tuscan dinner? Join us on this experience!

WHO & WHERE

During the week you will be guided by our wonderful team and friends here in Chianti, who will introduce you to the most magical aspects of Tuscan culture. During the week you will be introduced to passionate and talented local chefs, who will share with you the main Tuscan recipes. From homemade bread and pizza to the best ravioli, from learning how to shop at the market to how to cook the best Bistecca alla Fiorentina, not missing walks in the main Tuscan villages and towns and once in a lifetime culinary and cultural experiences.
Look forward to having you at home with us!
