What to expect
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet your host Alessio at his simple and sunlit apartment and join him at his dining table to enjoy a typical Fiorentino meal in a casual environment. Join your host Alessio in the kitchen of his apartment where he spends most of his time. You will learn to cook a regional Florentine meal from recipes that he has perfected over the years. Your hands-on cooking class will last about two hours. You will learn to cook three dishes from scratch such as an antipasto, main of meat or a pasta, and a dessert. As you cook together, enjoy learning about the skills and techniques that Alessio has honed over the years before you sit down at the table to share the meal you helped prepare with him. If there is a specific Fiorentino dish you'd like to learn, please let Alessio know when making your booking and he'd be happy to teach you how to prepare it.

Delicious evening!
Jul 2021
Our cooking class with Alessio was a wonderful evening filled with good food, lovely conversation and a lot of learning! Alessio was very informative and made learning all about Italian cuisine so much fun! We are so excited to share our Italian cooking skills with our friends and family! This is a must do experience if you are traveling to Florence!

Private cooking session
May 2019 • Couples
We recently traveled to Florence and my wife - an Italian and a great cook- wanted to take a private cooking session, my thoughts not for me, as it turned out I did most of the prep and pasta making with a terrific host Alessio in his apartment. It was what we hoped for and expected a hands on lesson with a homey relaxing atmosphere. The closest I come to cooking is a grill and I would do this again in a heartbeat in fact my new role at home is pasta making even though I am Italian a first for me. If your expecting Giada Dilaurentis and don’t want to participate save your money otherwise (there is no point!

Patrizia is AMAZING!! Great food, conversation, authentic experience!
Mar 2018 • Friends
Patrizia is amazing. We are in love! She was so charming, smart, well spoken, opinionated (in a good way!), well educated on food / Italian culture / everything, and an absolute joy to be with. The meal was amazing and we really had a wonderful time. Also, her apartment is perfectly located in Florence.
