Private Cooking Lesson & Dinner in Florence
The cooking lesson with Barbara was one of the highlights of our trip. It was much, much more than I had imagined. She spent time explaining Tuscan cooking methods to us, the importance of ingredient selection and let us do most of the work. Barbara was funny and engaging, a joy to interact with. The set up was perfect, not sterile like a commercial kitchen but more intimate like a setting in a home. She explained to us how she had selected the ingredients for our meal from the Central Market that morning so it was an especially memorable moment when we ran into her two days later, on Saturday morning, shopping with her own family at the Central Market.
I highly recommend this experience for anyone who is interested in cooking even in a casual way.
