Full description
Discover the art of Tuscan cuisine at a cooking class in Montepulciano. You'll begin by meeting Giacomo, your chef and Sommelier, together with your other classmates on the school terrace. Upon the school terrace you will be able to admire gorgeous views of the Tuscan countryside. Listen to Giacomo as he introduces the schedule for the lesson, talking about his organic farm and sustainable production systems. You will also learn how the quality and genuineness of ingredients are the bases of Giacomo's kitchen philosophy. One of your goals will be acquiring the ability to choose the best ingredients before treating them to prepare your Tuscan dishes in your home. The lesson is dynamic and includes different experiences, such as active cooking, a cooking show, a food tasting, and a wine tasting. Following roughly 3 hours of preparations, you'll sit around the large table to taste your 5-courses lunch. Each dish will be expertly paired with a delicious, selected local wine, and if the weather permits it, you will taste the dessert sitting relaxed on the terrace whilst enjoying the amazing views.

Sure, everyone can cook noodles, but learning how to do italian pasta was completely different. The classes took about half a day to get everyone the experiences very well coached how to do a perfect pappardelle, gnocchi, antipaste, meat and dessert. In the end all that work was released by the enjoyment of this gourmet dishes and also a tasting how to combine with the right flavor of wine each course. After all, Giacomo sent us the recipies and now we can feel italian flair each time we like to at home. Our suggestion, just do it! :-)
