The cuisine of Lucca has its roots in “cibo povero”, peasant food made of simple and nutritious ingredients such as bread, olive oil and seasonal produce.
In Tuscany the quality of the ingredients is more important than elaborate preparations. Learn the art to cooking Tuscan food, to mix simple ingredients in the best way to unlock their flavours.
‘Tortelli Lucchese’, ‘pappardelle’, ‘maccheroni tortellati’ are just a taste of this fascinating tradition.
Immerse yourself in a private cooking class at the Cesarina's home, learn the secrets of some typical dishes and taste the fruit of your labour accompanied by local wines.
Enjoy an Aperitivo with sparkling wine and nibbles followed by a cooking class. During the lesson the Cesarina will reveal the tricks of the trade of 3 authentic recipes (starter, pasta and dessert) and of the famous Bruschetta (/bruˈsketə/). Have fun putting your cooking skills to the test. Each participant will have a workstation equipped with utensils and all the ingredients to make the dishes.
