Tuscan Cooking Class -Traditional Pasta Menu
Kitchen has always been the fulcrum of this home, where my family is living since more than 7 generations.
I have always been fascinated by my grandmother's ability to prepare awesome dishes from Tuscan tradition, always with few, simple but precious ingredients.
That cultural heritage was in danger of disappearing: I spent a lot of time cooking with her, trying to learn her recipes and secrets.
In the end, I realized that she had given me a bigger gift: I had assimilated her cooking philosophy!
Then, I realized that tradition is not a dusty book but a living thing able also to adapt to new conditions, and even improve.
I studied ingredient's seasonality, their sustainable production systems, new cooking techniques, techniques of tasting: almost without realizing it, in the meantime, I became Chef and finally, also Sommelier.
Since a lot of years, I decided to share this path: a long path that is not yet finished...
Have fun while learning how to cook in an engaging, familiar, and friendly atmosphere.
Learn Nonna's Secrets and Tricks to prepare 2 different Traditional Fresh Pasta and le Caggiole's famous Tiramisù.
Taste quality local wines, expertly paired by Giacomo (Chef and Sommelier), who will accompany you on a genuine food and wine journey
You'll begin by meeting Giacomo and the other classmates on the panoramic terrace where the course program will be presented: talking about his Family's 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 Pasta at home.
At the end of the class, you'll sit around the large table to taste a 4 course menù:
--Typical Tuscan Appetizer,
--Pappardelle (with Tuscan meat Ragù)
--Pici (with a seasonal, traditional sauce)
A glass of selected local wine, paired to each dish, to transform "a lunch" in a real "Sensorial Path"!
Finally you will taste the Tiramisù, sitting relaxed on the terrace whilst enjoying the amazing views.Stop At:
