Tuscan cooking classes in Chianti at Agriturismo Le Cetinelle near Greve and Panzano in Chianti, Tuscany

Here at “Le Cetinelle”, we are happy to provide Tuscan cooking classes and traditional Tuscan dinners for our guests.

If you enjoy Italian food and are interested in learning the art of Tuscan cooking or in eating a true Tuscan dinner at your accommodations, this is the right opportunity for you!

Our cooking classes are hands-on. When participating in a cooking lesson, you prepare and cook yourself under the expert guidance of Simonetta, proprietress of “Le Cetinelle”, in a very friendly and informal atmosphere. Whenever possible, we use the fresh products of our garden, including fruit, vegetables, wine and olive oil.

Cooking classes can be arranged over 1, 2, 3 or more days.

We usually start at 10 am for a lunch cooking lesson and 4 pm for a dinner lesson.

At the completion of the lesson, you will sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labours!

More about our Tuscan cooking classes

Italy is famous throughout the world for its culinary traditions, and Tuscan cooking is without doubt, one of the most important and well-known.

Tuscany is a land rich in flavours and, as well as the celebrated Chianti wine and the extra virgin olive oil , its tasty dishes are part of the Italian enogastronomic patrimony.

At “Le Cetinelle” Simonetta and her friend Kalinka, who is from the area, organise cookery lessons for those who would like to learn some of the secrets of Tuscan cooking. This is a pleasurable experience where they happily share their culinary expertise enabling you to reproduce some of these marvellous dishes in your own homes.

Every lesson is personalised according to your particular requests, for example, if you have a particular theme or menus that you would like to prepare.

During our Tuscan cooking lessons you learn to prepare fresh pasta or potato gnocchi with various sauces, second courses of meat or vegetables, side dishes and wonderful Tuscan and Italian desserts.

Only the best quality ingredients for the cookery lessons are used, including fruit and vegetables from Simonetta’s own kitchen garden, potatoes cultivated by Luca and olive oil from the farm.

After the lesson the dishes are brought to the table, accompanied by Luca’s organic wine, to be enjoyed by everyone who wishes to participate in a merry evening.

The cookery lessons are held for a minimum of 2 people and the cost is 120 euro per person. This includes the final lunch or dinner and the book “The Alphabet of Tuscan Taste” with recipes in Italian and English, written by Kalinka Tondini.

For guests who would just like to participate in the meal, the cost is 40 euro per person (20 euros for children under 10).

We are also happy to organise Tuscan dinners upon request at a cost of 40 euro per person (20 euros for children under 10).

We look forward to welcoming you!!
