What you'll do

What We’ll Do:

We’ll start by visiting the local market, Sant’Ambrogio, to select seasonal produce directly from local farmers that we will use in our culinary experience together.

Once we arrive to the cooking terrace with a breathtaking view of Florence, we will have some “fettunta”, which is a toasted Tuscan bread, with some typical olive oil that highlights the 3 main Tuscan olive varietals. After we have fueled up with the fettunta snack we will get our hands dirty and I’ll teach you how to make fresh pasta by hand. We will make two fresh pastas, two sauces and tiramisu for dessert. To finish we’ll enjoy the fruits of our labor and of course TASTE!

Sample menu below, sauces and pasta shape may change based on in season fresh produce:

Antipasto:
Fettunta
*can be bruschetta with fresh tomatoes during tomato season

Primi:
Gnocchi al pomodoro
and
Tagliatelle with zucchini and cherry tomatoes

Dolci:
Tiramisu
Other things to note
Culinary experience can be personalized to accommodate vegetarian or gluten free options or food allergies, please communicate when booking
Sundays the market is closed and we visit a local butcher.

This was the perfect way to spend a day in Florence. Beyond stunning views and delicious food - with a great wine in hand, what more could you ask for in Italy?!

Simone, thank you so much for a wonderful experience. From start to finish we enjoyed every minute. Having you share your community and home with us, gave us the sense we were finally experiencing the real Italy. The food was amazing, and the view truly is the best in Firenze. I’ll always remember, more olive oil, and more salt!!!! All the best Jason and Lara
