An internationally renowned cuisine
The wine-and-food tourism has recently increased in Tuscany: people coming from all over the world are interested in visiting its most popular places and attractions, as well as in tasting some of the most famous wines in the world - DOC and DOCG Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montepulciano, Bianco di Pitigliano and all white wines of the Maremma area - together with some delicacies thanks to which the Italian cuisine has gained international claim.
It may sound strange that all those things are focused in such a small region, but this is Tuscany: seeing is believing!
Cooking courses for learning a bit of Tuscany
That’s why some accommodation organize cooking courses for their guests: tasting the typical essence of Tuscany may be dangerous: once you’ve tried it, you won’t be able to come back home again!
Cooking courses are aimed to teach guests some of the most traditional recipes of Tuscany. Renowned for being a poor cuisine, our food tradition uses mainly simple ingredients coming from local productions, like bread, vegetables, meat, so even the most delicious dishes won’t be difficult to be prepared.
Homemade fresh pasta with typical meat sauces, desserts and meat dishes are usually the most popular recipes you’re going to learn, as well as the realization of typical Tuscan antipasto with crostini and cold cuts, first and second courses and, finally, the dessert.
You’ll be able, then, to bring home with you a touch of real Tuscany.
