Intensive Cooking Course at an Ancient Abbey in Chianti - CODE: WFCHIA06
4 days 3 nights
Join an intensive traditional Tuscan cooking course! The course develops over 2 days of morning and afternoon sessions comprising 4 half day cooking classes. From the typical “schiacciata”, a kind of flat bread flavoured with extra virgin olive oil and salt to the dessert, passing through the “pasta” world, without forgetting meat and vegetables,you will make a journey through the excellences of the Tuscan products. The course is held at a beautiful abbey in the heart of Chianti Classico. The informal and intimate atmosphere of the abbey’s private dining room, where lunches and dinners are served after the cooking classes, is the perfect frame for a unique experience where fun and professionalism are wisely mixed. The final touch is the selection of the wines well paired with the prepared menu which brings out flavours and aromas of the food.
