Cooking Class - Traditional Fare From Tuscany

Explore both the flavors and history behind classic Tuscan dishes in this interactive class.

Long recognized as one of Italy's premier dining regions, Tuscany developed its unique culinary traditions based on the idea of cucina provera — poor cooking. This ideology allows for preparing large amounts of food using straightforward, locally sourced ingredients. In this class, Chef Donal shows you how to dress up Tuscan cuisine into a stunning four-course meal.

You'll begin by preparing antipasti with salami and crostini, then start crafting a multilayered Florentine zuccotto for the dessert course. While the zuccotto sets, you'll try out hand-rolling pici pasta and prepare a traditional panzanella, or bread salad.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
