Cooking Class in Lucca, Tuscany Program
Chef Gianluca begins with an introduction to the basics of Italian cuisine, whereupon the hands-on portion of your cooking course begins. Participants will create a 4-course meal alongside your professional chef, including an appetizer, pasta, fish, or meat main dish and a scrumptious dessert. You will have fun particularly as you learn to prepare homemade pasta, including kneading the dough and using a pasta machine! Chef Gianluca makes the class interesting by pointing out tricks of the Tuscan kitchen and describing typical ingredients and methods of Tuscan cooking.
The lesson lasts approximately 3 hours, and upon completion guests can make themselves comfortable either on the beautiful outdoor terrace (weather permitting) or in the Tuscan-style dining room. Participants will be served the 4-course meal they have prepared, accompanied by wonderful local wine and water. If you're a lover of authentic Tuscan cuisine, you'll definitely want to include this cooking class during your vacation in Italy.
