Theme : Gourmet Experiences Groups : No

The space is perfect for a cooking school, with heating in the winter and air-conditioning in the summer to ensure a comfortable environment for diving into this culinary adventure.

After arriving at the MaMa Florence cooking and wine school, you'll meet the other adventurous folks who will be joining this convivial class. Before the join-in class begins, your English-speaking instructor will tell you some history of Italian cooking and about the seasonal menu you will be preparing that day. Roll up your sleeves as the interactive, hands-on part of the class begins, which includes chef-guided preparation of a 4-course meal including appetizer, pasta dish, meat or fish dish and dessert.

There is a break halfway through the cooking class in the late morning for a small refreshment and time to enjoy the private courtyard before returning to your joinable cooking lesson. At the close of your culinary adventure, you'll relax around the table as you are served the delicious dishes you have just learned to prepare, along with wonderful local Italian wine, water and of course, a coffee to finish.

MaMa Florence also offers you themed join-in courses such as Vegetarian, Pasta, Pizza and Baked Goods, Fish, Meat and many other options, so please inquire if you are looking for a specific menu. Please note that private and evening classes are also available for an additional fee.
