Follow your Cesarina in a local market tour, challenge yourself with a hands-on cooking class and enjoy an authentic Italian meal with the recipes prepared during the class

Your menu
  • Bruschetta
  • Ravioli
  • Tiramisù (a chilled dessert made with coffee, lady fingers and mascarpone cheese)

Sant’Ambrogio market is the second food market in Florence and the one where locals still go shopping.

It’s an authentic and interesting market where King Charles spent a whole morning when he was still a Prince. Stuffed with local vegetables, meat, and also fish it’s a great place to start our class by buying some fresh ingredients and exploring the most interesting stalls.

After the market, we will walk to my home and start the cooking class. We will prepare a bruschetta with fresh seasonal ingredients, homemade ravioli, and a dessert.

Leisurely. Informative. Delicious creation!

One of our favorite Florence experiences for my 18 yr old daughter and me. Carlo was so kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. It was interesting hearing his stories and answers to my questions. He got my daughter involved and she loved every minute. I have a new appreciation of Italian cuisine and hope to take some of my new skills back to NC! I plan on booking him for my other daughter who is studying abroad here!

We spent a great time with Carlo . I'm sure we'll prepare this pasta, ravioli and tiramisu at home.

Carlo was AWESOME. Great job coordinating our arrival, even assisting with setting up local taxi app. Great job getting our "reluctant" teenagers involved, learned a ton about ravioli and tiramisu, and fabulous conversation, all while making an awesome memory! Definitely you should do this experience during your trip to Florence! Carlo was awesome!

"I love good food and I have been cooking for a lifetime! For years, I have also been dedicated to the search for cuisine that is not only delicious but also health-conscious: low-cholesterol and low-sugar desserts, and homemade pasta made with stone-ground flours from small mills... In many cases, it is possible to cook great dishes with local ingredients, without compromising on health." However, this should not be an excuse for creating mediocre dishes: if they are not good, it's pointless for them to be healthy!
