  • Cold cream of courgette with mozzarella, origano and anchovy
  • Homemade egg traditional pasta similar to maccheroni with season vegetables

Here is a Summer proposal of the Tuscan rural tradition. The experience will take place in the large kitchen with the possibility of accessing the garden and surrounding nurseries. You will taste an original appetizer served with slices of homemade bread and you will be surprised by the homemade garganelli with seasonal vegetable sauce: a unique egg pasta, portions of puff pastry formed with a wooden frame comb. The meal will end with homemade ice cream and fresh seasonal fruit.

Grazie Mille Luisa! We’ve had a great and very authentic experience making pasta with you. Thank you for the warm welcome, the beautiful stories you told us and the delicious pasta (we made ourselves)!

What a lovely evening - a very personal cooking experience with Luisa in her home. Some great cooking tips and conversation as well!

If we could give her 10 stars we would! She was gracious fun and amazing to work with. We never felt rushed with our class and made tiramisu and 2 types of pasta. We sat to lunch and had an excellent conversation Would recommend making time for this class!

Thank you for the best meal we had in Tuscany! So much more than a meal. We learned to make our own pasta from the family traditions. Incredible meats, wine, and cheeses and an evening full of personal conversations. We learned so much and felt like members of the family. Thanks for sharing the old ways of cooking and opening your home to us. It was our most memorable experience!

"I was born in Romagna, but now after more than 35 years in Pistoia my home is Tuscany. In the green, but a few kilometers from the station and the Piazza del Duomo. I have a creative and curious soul and in the kitchen, through the dishes of the Romagna and Tuscan tradition, I express at best my spirit of welcome. I love to make homemade pasta, bake bread, cook the classic desserts of the tradition."
