The Sant'Ambrogio market is the oldest food market in Florence and the one where locals continue to shop.

It is an authentic and interesting market where King Charles spent an entire morning when he was still a prince. Filled with local vegetables, meat and fish, it is 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 house and start our cooking class. We will prepare, depending on the season, fried flowers or a bruschetta with seasonal ingredients, homemade ravioli and a dessert.

We adored this cooking class! Carlo is just wonderful. He took us to a local market and then went back to his home to make tiramisu, ravioli, fried sage and cacio e pepe. We also got to meet his dog Neera, who is just the sweetest and friendliest dog there is!

We really enjoyed our cooking class with Carlo

Loved this class! It’s a must if you visit Florence! You will not be disappointed. Carlo was an absolute professional in teaching my wife and I along with being able to answer all of our questions. His knowledge and approach to teaching clearly shows the passion to cook and share the knowledge.

Our experience (party of 5) with Chef Carlo was excellent! He was very informative and taught us how to make the most delicious pasta and the BEST Tiramisu! I highly recommend this experience.

What a great experience for my family. Carlo was more than gracious to answer all of our questions and to go above and beyond just our recipes.

"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!
