Meet your host Patrizia near the Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio. She will guide you through the market, pointing out some of her favorite vendors and products. You will select fresh products to bring home and use for your cooking. After about one hour, you will walk back to Patrizia’s home to begin your hands-on cooking experience.

Once you get to her apartment, Patrizia will teach you authentic Italian dishes from Florence and Italy’s Emilia Romagna Region. You will prepare an appetizer, a first course, typically a fresh pasta like tagliatelle, ravioli, or gnocchi, a second course of meat and dessert! 

Patrizia specializes in seasonal dishes that bring out the flavors of the region – in the summer you might make sauces with fresh tomatoes, while in the winter months you might enjoy seasonal vegetables like artichokes. Your cooking class will last about 2 ½ hours before you sit down to enjoy your meal and some delicious Italian wine.
