I'm Barbara and I'm here to offer you an unforgettable cooking class in my beautiful Tuscany. As a Cesarina, I'm very attentive to the choice of products, preferring organic and local ones. The vegetables we will use for our dishes will be picked from my garden.

During our cooking lesson, we will learn how to prepare two traditional Tuscan pasta dishes and the classic tiramisù. We will learn how to make Pici with the classic aglione sauce and tortelli filled with pumpkin or potatoes, served with pecorino cheese fondue or tomato sauce. Finally, we will sit down to taste our freshly prepared dishes, accompanied by a glass of good Tuscan wine and a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills.
I look forward to welcoming you to this authentic and unforgettable culinary experience!

Barbara was excellent! We had such a great time. She went out of her way to make my son feel special as we were celebrating his birthday that day. She put out b-day lights on the table, a candle in his tiramisu (delicious), and gave him a thoughtful little gift as well. I can't say enough about our time with her. Great chef and teacher. Book her!!

We had such an amazing time learning from Barbara! She had such kindness and attention to detail as she taught us how to make tiramisu and pizza. My husband and I loved how easy and enjoyable it was to follow along. Barbara has a real passion for great food and it shows threw the way she taught us. Her location is unbeatable, on the rolling Tuscan hills. This was an unforgettable experience for us! We definitely recommend to any one considering this class!

Cesarina from 2018Location: Siena    Languages: French, English, Italian

Barbara welcomes us in a corner of paradise near Siena, immersed in the nature of wonderful Tuscany, one of the most beautiful cities of the region. A perfect location surrounded by the Sienese hills, where she loves to welcome her guests and serve typical dishes from her region. Our Cesarina is very careful about the choice of ingredients, she prefers organic products sourced locally. The vegetables are harvested from her vegetable garden, the flours are ground from ancient grains that come from a small stone mill near her house.
