A belated thank you for the care with which you planned the winter tour. We had expected to gamble on the weather and to lose. Your alternative indoor activities, however, were most enjoyable and instructive, and the special winter-time cooking lessons got us away forever from Ye Olde England's burnt chop and two soggy veggies.

Your private Tuscan cooking class with an English-speaking professional chef begins when the chef arrives at your accommodations with grocery bags overflowing with the freshest, tastiest local ingredients Tuscany has to offer. Once you all settle into the kitchen, you will be taken step-by-step through the creation of an entire Tuscan 4-course menu.
You can choose ahead of time to focus on traditional Tuscan, revised Tuscan, vegetarian or all-organic cuisine. Once your meal is prepared, you will all sit down to feast on your creations together. Your chef will have also brought along some wonderful local Tuscan wine to compliment the dishes you have prepared.

As your private chef comes to your accommodations in Tuscany, you must supply the kitchen where the cooking class is to take place. A country villa or large apartment in the Florence, Siena or Chianti areas will work perfectly (the apartment must be within a 1-hour driving time of Florence's city center or you can pay an additional supplement per km). Your chef will need a clear, precise address and other contact information to be able to arrive at the location.
