We planned this class as a family quality time, something fun for all of us, including our 17-year old son. And it worked! We took the 3-course "Easy dinner" class that included GNUDI di ricotta e spinaci, baked vegeterian CANNELONI and BISCOTTI di prato. There were seven of us between the two stations and Alessandro, our chef/instructor, an unforgettable character, was busy running between these stations giving instructions. A bit disorganized, it was still very enjoyable. After we were done cooking, we went downstairs to the wine cellar where tables were set for us and ate what we made enjoying a stimulating conversation with other participants. In accordance with Tuscan tradition, we ate our biscotti after the meal soaking them in a fortified wine called vin santo. Nice touch!
If you are looking for a professional, dry, academic learning cookery class - this may not be it. To us, though, it was ajust what we needed: an off-beaten track, fun activity that included great food we made ourselves (well, kind of) paired with a nice wine after a busy day filled with a "serious" Florentine art and culture exploring.
