After spending a full day exploring Florence’s treasures, make your way to the private home of a local chef in the early evening. Settle into the authentic and well-equipped kitchen with a welcome glass of wine, and then roll up your sleeves for a 1-hour pasta-making lesson. Class size is limited to 10 to ensure an intimate environment and personalized attention from the chef.

Using fresh, seasonal ingredients, learn to prepare pasta dough from scratch and then shape it into classic varieties like ravioli, tagliatelle, pappardelle, and gnocchi. According to the day’s recipes, you might make filled pasta like ravioli with ricotta and parmesan, long pappardelle with tomato basil sauce, colored tagliatelle with pesto, or rich dishes like mushroom risotto or truffle butter gnocchi.

When the cooking’s done, join your new friends around a communal dining table overlooking the Boboli Gardens behind Pitti Palace. Dig into your fresh pasta creations, along with other dishes prepared by the chef such as succulent meats, vegetarian sides, and local cheeses paired with savory homemade jams. As with any proper Italian meal, plenty of wine will be served as well. Buon appetito!

Wonderful Pasta Making Experience!

Chef Vary and Eduardo are the quintessential European hosts. Attentive, interested, informative, and engaging. This class was among the most memorable experiences for us in Europe; we not only learned how to different types of pasta but learned so much about the Italian culture through these professionals. An amazing time. I've been home three weeks now and make my own pasta every week thanks to Chef Vary!
