Work on your Italian baby food belly with this fun cooking course set in a Tuscany farmhouse

Spend a RELAXING DAY in the heart of the Tuscan countryside learning everything this land has to offer and get a baby food from the amount of delicious plates you are going to prepare.

The cooking course will take place at a RURAL VILLA not too far from San Gimignano, one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Tuscany surrounded by olive trees and vines in the Chianti region. This is where the cooking course will take place and where you will learn and prepare yourself how to create AUTHENTIC TUSCAN DISHES from a funny and knowledgeable local chef: Antipasti, HOMEMADE PASTA with two different sauces, second courses, dessert and lots more.

During the meal you will also taste 3 different types of WINE TO TASTE produced in the region by a local winery that you will be able to buy at a very low cost before returning back to Florence.
