Everyone in our group of 14 (mix of adults and teens) enjoyed the market tour & cooking class.

We prepared 1 appetizer (bruschetta), 2 courses (gnocchi and pan fried chicken), and desert (panna cotta). There was another similar sized group that was running in parallel and they had their own chef/guide.

The facility was a professional chef school and was clean, spacious, and well equipped.

At the end, we ate what we cooked and they severed wine (red & white) and offered bottle water to accompany the meal.

My daughter (age 23) and I signed up for this and are so happy we did! We had an interesting and educational tour of the local market and then got to make our own authentic, Italian lunch. And we made pasta from scratch! Our guide/chef was Nicola, and not only was he an amazing cook and teacher but he also made it all really fun! Mama Mia! When our food was ready, we went downstairs and ate in a cute-looking wine cellar area. And to top it all off, you get to take home of copy of the recipes you made! One of the many highlights of our Florence trip! Grazie Nicola!

This is a great value for the price! We didn't just "walk" through the market...we received informative information (and tasting) of balsamic vinegars. Learned a lot about the market. Luca was a fantastic guide AND instructional chef! We learned four recipes with plenty of opportunity for everyone to practice and participate. Then enjoyed a wonderful meal of our labor, along with wine. Highly recommend!

The guides were kind and knowledgeable, but this was a group course - no individual cooking. Misleading wording in the listing. We cooked our meal with 6 strangers and had to share utensils and food items, taking turns and dividing up responsibilities instead of getting the full experience ourselves. We didn’t get to eat the food we actually made because there was no way to tell who did what. If you choose this course make sure you are ready for a group experience.

This was an amazing experience! The local market included taste testing of balsamics, olive oil, truffles and cheese. Everyone was so friendly. Chef Luca was awesome! Funny, friendly and very informative while we cooked. Made a 4 course meal and got the recipes at the end!!! Would highly recommend. If I had more time I would of done more classes!!

We had a great morning with Francesco! The experience in the morning with Emily at the market, learning about truffles and balsamic vinegar, was a treat!
At the school, we got to cook a simple but delicious meal, we met some new people, and came away with some easy-to-make dishes for home.
Thank you to CafTours and Francesco for a lovely experience!

We did the Market Tour with the Boss, Francesco. He is a funny guy with lot of experience. A real good cook and teacher. The tour trough the market was to fast over, the cooking very interesting and the Food and the wine real good. This tour is the best way to understand Florence.

This experience was very fun. We learned a lot about olive oil, balsamic vinegar and truffles during the market visit. We then prepared a meal consisting of bruschetta, homemade fettuccine with a truffle sauce and chicken with onions and bell peppers. The desert we prepared was pancetta. When the meal was done cooking, we sat down and ate lunch with a nice glass of wine. Our chef, Walter, was very knowledgeable and funny. All in all, this was a great experience.

What an amazing morning we had. A very informative market tour with chef Luca. Amazing tastings of truffle products and balsamic vinager.
From there a short walk to the cooking school. Here all were ready for us to begin. Very professional outlay of kitchen.
Soon the games begin with making of pasta,bruschetta, chicken dish and tiramisu. After that we were served our creations accompanied by lovely red wine. This were euros well spend.
I will recommend this to all that can and even those that cannot cook. We went home with lots of inspiration and recipe booklet in hand.

Francesco was so much fun and informative. He is very personable and made the entire class time fun for everyone. He was also extremely accommodating to people with food allergies. I would highly recommend his class.
