cooking lessons in tuscany

stefania’s lessons are imbued with joy, passion, & improvisation

My cooking lessons are imbued with the joy and passion that I bring to food, cooking, and the rest of my life. I believe food reveals much about the land from whence it comes, and vice versa. That is why, when possible, I like to start my classes with a visit to local food markets, cheese makers, and private green gardens; followed by a hands-on cooking lesson that guides you through the preparation of an entire meal from antipasto to dolce, and ends around an elegantly decorated table, enjoying the lovely meal you just created.

Personal attention, spontaneity, and improvisation are important ingredients in my kitchen. These are the basic elements bringing pleasure to cooking together, and is why I keep the classes small. Menus are inspired by the season, what’s available in the markets, and what you’d like to prepare. I offer one-day courses as well as two- and three-day courses, tailored to your wishes.

Although I’m no longer in Montefioralle/Tuscany—and am now based in Umbria—I am happy to travel to Tuscany and offer you a cooking class in the kitchen of your Tuscan accommodation if it’s suitable. Contact Stefania for more information.
