Florence is a city full of history and charm, every street in its historic center displays wonderful works of art, and walking around you can enjoy its quiet and welcoming atmosphere. Florence also offers excellent cuisine, made up of simple but flavorful recipes. To enjoy it at its best, the ideal is to book a lunch or dinner or a cooking class at my home, I will teach you the secrets of my family, together we will prepare a complete menu from appetizer to dessert, or you can simply enjoy my dishes in my living room with a unique view of Florence, looking at Brunelleschi's dome and sipping a good glass of Chianti, ending with a "wow" tiramisu!

Outstanding experience! Cecilia was an amazing hostess and walked us through each step of preparing our meal. The two college men we brought with us had plenty to eat and gained confidence that they too could prepare a meal fit for royalty. Would highly recommend Cecilia and Cesarine!

My family and I had a fabulous time with Cecilia! Her home was beautiful and welcoming. The recipes and food were delicious and fun. She taught us her secret recipe, best on the planet, tiramisu!! We could not recommend Cecelia more!!! Book with her…you will not regret it!

Our cooking lesson with Cecilia will be one of our fondest memories of our trip to Florence. We learned new techniques, had an amazing meal and truly enjoyed Cecilia’s warm hospitality. A wonderful experience!

Cecilia was a wonderful host to me and my wife. We felt right at home with her! We made tiramisu, ravioli, and fettuccini noodles all from scratch. We had a great meal with a great bottle of wine in Cecilia’s home. We would highly recommend!

This was my second class with Cecelia -- the first was three years ago and it was so wonderful that, when I knew I would be returning to Florence this week with 2 friends, I had to book another class with Cecilia! She has a wonderful home overlooking Florence and a very functional and well-designed kitchen. Her recipes are genuinely Tuscan, as she is a native, and are wonderful -- and not too complicated to prepare on one's own at home. She is as charming as her food is delicious and she was very flexible with our needs and easy to work with. If you are going to have a cooking class experience in Florence, there is no one better to do it with than Cecilia. Even experienced cooks will learn a lot from her!

Cesarina from 2018Location: Florence    Languages: Italian and English

At the top end of a road just outside the historic center of Florence, across from the park of the Stibbert Museum, our Cesarina opens the doors to her home from with a splendid view of the city.  “Cooking amuses me and always puts me in a good mood. I’m constantly on the lookout for the perfect recipe, and when I find it I guard it as though it was a treasure chest!”. Cecilia’s is a simple, but unquestionably tasty cuisine: “I like inviting friends home, without any formalities, offering them the best I can”.
