Delvis privat Chianti-kokkekurs på en villa i Toscana med tur på markedet
Så er det bare å hoppe på minibussen og reise inn til den toskanske landsbygda som omringer byen. Snart er du midt inne i blant de mange vingårdene i Chianti-regionen – og får sett det landskapet som er erketypisk for vakre Toscana.
Etter at du har beundret omgivelsene, er neste stopp en vakker villa hvor du møter kjøkkensjefen Giovanni. Han er en anerkjent og innflytelsesrik florentinsk kokk som driver en av Firenzes beste mat- og vinskoler. Knyt på deg forkleet, og hjelp Giovanni med å lage et utsøkt toskansk måltid. Menyen endres i henhold til årstiden, men ta gjerne en titt på eksempelmenyen i reiseplanen for å se et utvalg av typiske retter.
Gled deg over et helt spesielt besøk i et vinlaboratorium. På denne morsomme og informative opplevelsen får du vite hvordan forskjellige varianter av rene viner (fra Sangiovese, Canaiolo-druer osv.) blandes for å skape komplekse viner, hver enkelt med sin egen bukett dufter og smaker.
Du lærer hvordan man lager pasta fra bunnen, og du får kunnskaper om lokale råvarer så vel som en mengde matoppskrifter mens dere forbereder måltidet. Når dere er ferdige, kan dere nyte maten og smake på lokale vin. Du kan prøve tre forskjellige varianter – vanligvis den anerkjente Chianti Classico-vinen, en Chianti Riserva og en toskansk dessertvin – og oppdage hvordan smakene utfyller måltidet.
Når du er ferdig med måltidet får du et diplom. Så kan du ta et vemodig farvel med kjøkkensjefen Giovanni før du reiser tilbake til utgangspunktet i Firenze sentrum, hvor opplevelsen avsluttes.

Alain made our day so enjoyable when we were in Florence, first meeting us downtown and walking us through the city, giving us food tips and history that was so fascinating! Then we visited the produce market, where he had some of his friends prepare superfresh disshes of fruit for us. We then went inside to sample cheese, meat and wine before being whisked to the countryside to a comfortable space to cook, sample and drink delicious wine. Alain was funny and adept, sharing secrets and stories with us as we all had ample hands-on time to make two kinds of sauces, two kinds of pasta and some tiramisu... all of which we ate before he took us to the winery on site to sample sweet wine and biscotti and get a tour of the winery. Fascinating and fun, all day long. My husband and I met some great people and really appreciated Alain's presence and style. You should ask fir him by name if you're interested in this tour. Have fun! :D
the cooking class was a lot of fun but the trip through the market felt a little disjointed. our tour host Marco was extremely patient with us as we attempted to make pasta and desert. The finished product was excellent! my wife and I enjoyed this tour very much and we look forward to trying the recipes provided.
Fun market tour and a great cooking class where we made delicious pastas and then gorged on them afterwards.
Amazing experience Our instructor Javier so knowledgeable Small group Highly recommended
What a great way to end our time in Florence. Loved the experience from our time at the market - with samples - through making and eating our own pasta and tiramisu. Everyone in the small group had a great day.
Tour was very nicely organized. Our personal chef was most knowledgeable and had all of us engaged with the meal preparation.
To begin with, this tour should really be 4 hours, not 7-8 hours. We wasted a whole day, with a lot of sitting around. The tour began with a visit to a local market. There was nothing special about the market, and we're not sure what the purpose of this was, since we did not personally shop for the ingredients. We tasted some fruit, meat and cheese, while our tour guide shopped for the ingredients separately. We spent 1.5 hours here, and this could have easily been 30 minutes or skipped entirely. The villa was located in the first town outside of Florence, a 30 min drive, so don't take this tour if you're expecting to see the Tuscan countryside. When we arrived, I was surprised to see the room was not equipped with sinks or stoves, there was simply one hot plate which the chef would use to cook everything. We were expecting for this to be a full cooking class, but it was more like a demonstration. The only part of the class we were involved in, was making the pasta. This was the most enjoyable part of the class. The chef/instructor did not pass out recipes for us to follow while he prepared and cooked, we really just watched and asked questions. We were supposed to be making a 3 or 4 course meal, but it turned out to only be pasta with meat sauce and tiramisu. For the bruschetta appetizer, he just opened jars of tapenade and put it onto bread! In terms of the instructor, Marco, he was not very enthusiastic or engaging. He did not introduce himself at the beginning, and did not engage the group or encourage any introductions. Additionally, the most disturbing part was that he did not practice safe handling of food. When we arrived, he did not ask the group to go and wash our hands, and in fact, he himself touched the meat with his hands, and right afterwards touched the vegetables, without washing his hands. This was extremely upsetting, since he was cooking the food for a large group of people. As a chef and instructor, he should have been practicing food safety, and ensuring the whole group was also being safe. Any cooking classes I have ever taken in the past, this was always of utmost importance. The food itself was very good. We spent about 45 minutes eating, and drinking wine. Afterwards we were taken to a nearby cellar where they make wine and olive oil. Again, we are not sure what the purpose of this was, since we didn't even get to taste any wine or olive oil. Some was available for purchase, but again this 30-45 mins was a complete waste of time. I think there are a lot of kinks that need to get worked out with this tour and I wouldn't recommend doing it unless you have a full day you don't mind wasting while in Florence. We only had 3 days in Florence and we were very disappointed we wasted one of them on this.
Best day of our Tuscan honeymoon! thank you Chef Marco!
