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.

    Barbara is the kindest sweetest soul. She was so patient with us and we all had a TON of fun. She welcomed us into her BEAUTIFUL home that has been in the family for generations. They cooking class was SOOO fun and we now know how to make each dish from scratch! She even sent us the recipe just in case we wouldn't remember.

    We absolutely loved cooking with Barbara, she is an expert in cooking, but also very friendly and speaks perfect English. It felt like cooking with friends rather than some class, but at the same time we learned a lot of new things and had an amazing dinner that we made ourselves. If you have a chance don't miss this opportunity!

    Barbara was exceptional! She warmly welcomed us into her home and kindly shared her recipes and skills with us as we asked question after question. We truly appreciated her patience and warmth. The food we created and shared was beyond delicious. Simple recipes created with love that filled our tummies and hearts. An experience we will never forget. Grazie mille!

    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.
