    A guided tour with a walk through the historic park of Pratolino, a short distance from my home where on the way back, we will enjoy a final aperitif with some tasty crostini, a dessert and good wine.

    Our itinerary will start from a beautiful avenue of horse chestnuts leading to the oldest garden: here we will tell you about the history of the most important buildings in the park. We will get to know, along the way, the characters who pulled the strings of this very complex machine, and we will admire the beautiful fountains that adorn the park, rich in mythological and alchemical references. It is said that the Medici gardens at Pratolino were among the most incredible ever created, second only to those of Boboli in Florence.

    Cristina welcomed us into her wonderful country home and gave us a great Tuscan cooking experience. All of us, from 21 to 62 years of age, thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and of course the dinner too.

    We had a wonderful time with Cristina. She took us on a market tour of where locals get the fresh food and ingredients. We then went to her beautiful home, a short drive to the country side. It was quiet with amazing views, like something out of a movie. The cooking and food were outstanding. We shared stories and had a great time. She truly opened her home to us. One of the highlights of our trip. Highly recommend. If we come back to Italy we will be sure to visit Cristina again.

    It was truly a magical time, and getting to learn and cook was amazing.

    Cristina was a wonderful host and she went out of her way to pick my daughter & I up from downtown Florence, which was totally unexpected but most appreciated. We loved our morning with her in her beautiful home, chatting away and learning about pasta making. We both thoroughly enjoyed her company.

    I have always loved cooking. I learned from my mother that she was a perfect cook and taught me to recognize the good taste of food, its genuineness and the tradition of typical dishes that are handed down from mother to daughter. Hospitality in mine. land and in my family has always been a strong point: a place at the table is always added with great joy in offering good food to guests. I live in Florence because I moved to study, so I integrated Tuscan cuisine with that of my land and I must say that it was a beautiful enrichment of flavors and recipes .
