Join this 4-hour of Tuscan cooking class in Siena. The school was the first school of international cuisine born in Siena, founded in 1996.

The lessons will be held by Lella, the owner of the cooking school, that has always been a passionate researcher into old texts on cookery, and her lessons combine a mixture of both ancient and family recipes, coupled with only the healthiest and most authentic local ingredients.

The menu is not always the same, but every time we prepare 5-6 recipes, find an example below.

Of course we can choose between various starters, soups, fresh pastas with related condiments, ravioli, gnocchi and pici. For example, there can be a main course of meat or fish with side dishes made with fresh vegetables in season. Desserts can be typical from Tuscany, or typical of other Italian regions. 

At the end of each lesson, the meal is served with the food prepared during the lesson and is accompanied by ¼ of excellent Chianti wine per person.

Lella teaches how to prepare a full Tuscan menù from starter to dessert including a fresh home-made pasta.

Small-group cooking class with a maximum of 15 people ensures a personalized experience.

Francesco did an excellent job explaining not only how to prepare the meal but with general cooking. The food was delicious. We can’t wait to try to cook it at home.

My wife and I took the tuscan cooking class with Lella and absolutely loved it! It was one of the highlights of our vacation to Italy. Highly recommend making this part of the itinerary. Truly memorable experience.

Overall the class was okay and the setting was beautiful. Main problem was that the written recipes we were given did not match what the chef prepared in several cases. (For example we had a recipe for a white cheese sauce over the fresh pasta but the chef prepared a tomato sauce.) We met some great people and had a good time but as far as taking away recipes we'd make again that was kind of lacking.

This was our first cooking class ever and to have it right in Siena it self, WOW!! The food was great and I know that a couple in our party of 6 have already cooked these same recipes at home with much success! My only negative was the delay in translation. English was not a strong option for our instructor. Other wise all was great and we will certainly consider having this type of experience again!

My boyfriend and I attended this cooking school last week - 4pm-8pm with four course meal. We were a little late to start the class because of a large family who were on the fence about joining. This was a bit annoying but our teacher decided to start anyway... so we ended up a private lesson for two and had the recipes altered / technicality increased! We made a traditional Italian soup for starter, which was less to my taste, then pasta - a must-do in Italy, followed by steak and deep fried courgette flowers, delicious almond based biscuits for desert. Added extras such as bruschetta were given to us likely because we were just two, and all was served with a bottle of Tuscan wine. Excellent evening and great memories.
