What you'll do

Get prepared for a total immersion into the Tuscan way of life. Join me in my kitchen for a fun cooking class, combining fresh handmade stuffed pasta and great company. I would like to make you live a multi sensory experience, far away from mass tourism. Let's start making the dough : I'll guide you step by step to get a perfect pasta dough. We will used it to prepare 2 kinds of pasta : stuffed pasta (tortelli or ravioli) and long pasta (tagliatelle or tagliolini). Before rolling (and stuffing) the pasta we will cook the filling : potatoes, parmesan, nutmeg, garlic and parsley are the ingredients for the traditional Tortelli (I could propose you instead to prepare some Ravioli with fresh seasonal products). Of course we will cook 2 delicious sauces, one for each kind of pasta. On demand it is possible to prepare the dessert together (tiramisù, cheesecake, cantuccini...). After cooking, we will share a simple meal as old friends. I have selected a natural local red wine to accompagny the pasta. At the end I will offer you an italian dessert and a moka coffee. PS : the duration of the experience can vary from 3 to 4 hours.

Laurence

Native from Paris, I've been living in Tuscany for 18 years. Before settling in Florence, I lived in Mugello, a beautiful area of Tuscan Emilian Apennines, where I used to make Tortelli, little pillows stuffed with potatoes. I have a great interest for all that is handmade. I'm working as a seamstress and tailoring teacher. And I'm in love with Tuscan traditional cuisine, combination of seasonal products into simple recipes. I would be so happy to welcome you home, sharing my passion and teaching the secrets of handmade pasta! Let yourself be inspired, enjoyment is contagious !

You will be welcomed in my flat, situed in a residential and quiet area in the west part of Florence, with a nice view of the Florentine countryside. It is easily connected with public transports (Tramway or bus / €1,50 for a ticket). It is also possible to come walking though a beautiful alternative itinerary through the hills. If you come by car, I will show you where to park for free.
