Your menu

    An evening to learn the secrets of pizza dough and its baking.

    The evening will take place in the garden where Alvaro has built his corner Wood-fired oven and barbecue. The breathtaking view of Siena and a craft beer from the nearby La Stecciaia company will do the rest. The menu will include as appetizer a tasting of ciaccini with pecorino, sausage, pachino or simply rock salt and rosemary. Next will be a margherita pizza tasting where each guest will provide their own pizza spread. To finish sweet pizza with sugar and hazelnut cream. The experience is only possible on serene summer evenings.

    We were fortunate enough to spend the evening cooking with Alvaro and his family in their home in Rapolano Terme ( This was a truly special experience and one that we will never forget. The location being their family home made the experience truly special, we were greeted and welcome with home made cheese and local antipasti’s. The experience involved making a tiramisu and two pasta varieties, Alvaro and his family were very good teachers, very friendly and very funny throughout. Once all the food had been prepared we ate at their dinner table and enjoyed some very good food, great stories, good wine and great home made desert wine. It was an experience that I can’t recommend enough and I am so glad we got to do it! Thank you Alvaro and Family!

    Cesarina from 2020Location: Rapolano Terme    Languages: English and Italian
    Our Cesarino Alvaro has a special and original culinary history: at the age of 14 he moved to Siena to work as a cook, at the age of 18 he opened his restaurant and at the age of 22, life chose a different path for him. He became Mayor of Rapolano T., then he opened a company and, now that he is retired, he can return to his first love, cooking. “I like to talk about the history of my country and my cuisine, everyone is incredulous about the hidden treasures of this territory, both from a historical and culinary point of view.”
