Cooking lesson: learn how to cook Italian recipes with a local Cesarina

Your menu

    Join me, Barbara, a local Cesarina from Montepulciano, for a special cooking class where we'll create a three-course menu of authentic Tuscan dishes. We'll start by making the famous handmade pasta called pici all'aglione, a savory tomato and garlic sauce that will leave your taste buds craving for more. For our main course, we'll prepare tender meat slow-cooked in a rich red wine ragu, served with crispy roasted vegetables. Finally, we'll end our meal with traditional Tuscan cookies paired with a glass of Vin Santo. As we cook and eat together, I'll share with you the stories and history behind each dish, giving you a true taste of Tuscan life. Come and join me for an unforgettable culinary experience in the heart of Tuscany.

    Cesarina from 2018Location: Montepulciano    Languages: Italian and English

    Barbara welcomes us in Montepulciano Station, a historic village nestled on the hills in the province of Siena, near the characteristic medieval village is surrounded by three circular walls and is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the area. If you see it for yourself, you'll soon understand why: the old town sprawls over a steep hill, adorned with stunning towers and steeples, while its square opens onto the breathtaking panorama of the Tuscan countryside. Our Cesarina’s country house encapsulates this charming atmosphere. Her beautiful wine cellar is home to dozens of aging bottles of local wine, and the rest of the apartment is warm and welcoming. It is here that Barbara serves us her local specialties; simple, but with sterling character and unforgettable taste.
