Florence has a great culinary tradition.

Right after a brief introduction on Florentine food and what you will be preparing, it is time to get your hands deliciously dirty. This cooking class was designed for families traveling with children, so every dish prepared is something both you and your children will enjoy, such as gnocchi with pesto sauce (starter), veal with zucchini soufflé (main) and tiramisu (desert).
Every member of your family will participate in the preparation of this child-friendly meal.
And once everything is ready, why not sit down, relax and enjoy what you prepared! Nothing tastes better than homemade cuisine, especially when you have help from an expert chef!

Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones in the cooking school, along with your private chef (and assistant).

Do the parents participate?

Of course! Everyone will get their hands deliciously dirty. Teamwork makes a great meal. Depending on the age of the children, parents might be the only ones allowed to use knives or get close to the stove or oven.

How big is the meal?

The quantity of food prepared and served is equivalent to a healthy portion for adults. It is a 3-course meal, so you won’t feel hungry at the end.

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

Children under the age of 6 will not be able to participate in this cooking class for safety reasons.

Can you make gluten free meals / can you cope with food allergies or other intolerances?

We can adapt to any food allergy or intolerance as long as this information has been given to us prior to the day of the activity. If information is given during the cooking class, your chef will do their best to adapt to your needs and tastes.

Can you make kosher meals (or any other special meals)?

Yes we can. Here too, please give this information ahead of time so the adapted ingredients can be purchased.

Do we need to bring special material or ingredients?

No. All you need to bring is a big smile and the will to prepare a delicious meal. We’ll take care of the rest. Should the parents want to bring their own wine, please feel free to do so.

Do we get the recipes of what we prepared?

Of course, we will send you the recipes by email once the cooking class is over (this might take a few days, especially if we need to translate recipes)

Will my teenage kids like the activity?

Preparing a good meal is a quality that everyone should have. If they don’t like cooking, this might be a great way to get them to start liking it, as it is always a useful skill to have.
