Your experience
  • Variety of Tuscan croutons
  • Pici (homemade noodles) in a garlic sauce
  • Rustic apple Tart

I am waiting for you in a corner of paradise, immersed in the nature of the wonderful Tuscany a stone's throw from Siena, one of the most beautiful cities of this territory. A perfect location surrounded by the hills of Siena, where I love to welcome my guests and propose typical dishes of my land. During this cooking class, I will teach you how to prepare three classic Tuscan recipes, following family recipes. We will learn how to make Tuscan bread and stuff crostini with organic products; we will discover how to make pici, a long fresh pasta format, often shaped like a large spaghetto, with a sauce made with aglione, a particularly aromatic type of garlic grown in Tuscany; and we will complete our menu with rustic apple pie.

I look forward to seeing you three the hills of Siena!

Learning to prepare pasta and tiramisu alongside Barbara was an absolute delight. We were warmly embraced into her home, instantly feeling at ease. Barbara's knowledge and guidance transformed the entire process into an enriching and enjoyable experience. I will recommend this experience to everyone I know. Thank you Barbara!!

This experience was a dream come true! Barbara welcomed us into her gorgeous, historic home for a wonderful night where we were lucky enough to learn about Italian cooking traditions and to enjoy a beautiful, delicious dinner with the best of friends. I can’t imagine a better way to experience the local charm and culture of the Siena region. This was the highlight of our visit and Barbara was the perfect host!

We had such a good time learning to cook classic Tuscan dishes with Barbara in her beautiful home! We learned a lot, ate delicious food and drank wonderful Chianti! She took photos for us and sent us the recipes! Had a blast!

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.
