Full description
Your tour will begin when you’re welcomed to a genuine trattoria in the center of Florence, where the restaurateur will take you behind the scenes to the kitchen to meet the head chef. Then, as you sip on fine red wine, you'll hear all about the origins of the Bistecca Fiorentina, the Chianina cow, how to source the best ingredients, and what makes the Florentine Steak so special.

Next, you’ll choose your steak and prepare it for the grill. As you do so, you’ll also be shown how to make a Tuscan antipasto fettunta and prepare the classic Italian sides for the steak. The Florentine steak is typically very thick and weighs around 2.5 pounds. It’s traditionally served in the middle of the table with the side dishes to be shared between 2 or 3 people.

Once your steak is ready, you'll sit down with the other guests in the cosy trattoria, raise a glass to toast your culinary efforts, and dig in to your delicious dinner. Finally, you’ll finish up with a delicious dessert.

Important information
Know before you go
• The Florentine Steak is an extremely large steak made to share between 2 or 3 people, depending on its size. There's always plenty, but if you want your own steak you can request this in during booking.
• Please note that the Florentine steak is top quality meat and traditionally served rare. Authentic trattorias will not ask you how you like it, nor offer to cook a well-done steak. If you're not accustomed to rare meat, it's encouraged that you try the steak in true Florentine style and then if you still prefer so it can be grilled further for you.
