Max 4 guests

Spoken languages:  Italian, French, English

Cooking class: learn how to cook Italian recipes and taste the dishes prepared during the class

Your menu
  • Chickpea flatbread
  • Homemade Gnocchi
  • cantucci

In my house cooking is also feeling part of a tradition and a place, and the dishes of my land are the ones that make me feel Tuscan. Let's prepare together some simple recipes, but typical of my country and tasty.

After an aperitif that takes into account the seasonality, we prepare together:

  • the cecina, or chickpea porridge, a very low salted cake
  • gnocchi, made from potatoes and flour
  • cantucci, cut and crispy cookies.

Let's taste together the dishes we have prepared, sipping wine from local wineries. The cecina will be accompanied by "spuma", a soft drink very common in Tuscany.

Tamara was our host and she was delightful. We made several easy, common Italian appetizers and then shared a lovely meal on her patio. She had also prepared ahead of time homemade chianti and limoncello. She didn't speak English so we used Google translator and it was very easy. Tamara is patient, knowledgeable and gracious to open her home to us. We would do it again! It was a great way to wind down our Italian vacation! Ciao and Grazie!!

Tamara was amazing! She offered to pick us up from the train station and drop us off and was very flexible on timing. We made ravioli, macaroni, and the best tiramisu. She also served us home made limoncello which was incredible, an appetizer (delicious) and espresso. She doesn't speak English but it wasn't an issue with Google translate. I highly recommend her class! Beautiful outdoor patio to eat at as well.
Wonderful cooking class! - July 2023
We had a great time with Tamara! She was very patient, easy to get along with, and very good at teaching how to make pasta. I don’t think I could eat the pre-made pasta ever again. We made ravioli, macaroni (the real deal), and tiramisu. Her recipes and technique were easy to understand, and the results were superb! I was so happy to learn how to make tiramisu as well because it’s one of my favorites. Next time we come back to Lucca, we will make sure to take another class with her. She was a great host, very welcoming, and easy to learn from. Lots of insight and fun! Highly recommend!

Tout était fabuleux. Tamara est une hôte plus qu'accueillante, on se sent comme à la maison ! Elle explique très bien les étapes et le cours est super divertissant. Nous nous sommes régalés et avons passé un très bon moment. Nous avons hâte de refaire les recettes a la maison. On recommande chaleureusement l'expérience.

Cesarina from 2021Location: Massarosa    Languages: Italian, French, English
"My mother never had a passion for cooking and then I went to spy on the grandmothers and aunts. My home has always been a meeting place for family and friends for dinners. I always like to change menus with an eye to genuine food. I like to make bread and pasta at home on weekends, I go to buy flour at the mill, oil at the mill, fruits and vegetables from farmers. I live near the countryside, where there are still small producers and ancient crops."
