Tuscany’s Top Cooking Schools

1
Cucina Con Vista

Cucina Con Vista

Under the tutelage of chefs Elena Mattei and Lapo Magni—a mother-and-son team— you’ll learn to cook the sorts of dishes that Tuscan grandmas have been perfecting for decades. Each class covers a five-course meal, including wine pairings. Courses are usually customized and limited to three to four people, although larger groups can be accommodated.

Belmond Villa San Michele

Belmond Villa San Michele

The cooking school at the elegant Belmond Villa San Michele Hotel offers two kinds of culinary instruction: group cooking classes using local and seasonal ingredients; and personal seminars with chef Attilio Di Fabrizio, focusing on traditional Tuscan main dishes—pastas, risottos, and soups. Each class includes lunch at La Loggia, the property’s acclaimed restaurant.

Toscana Mia

Toscana Mia

Classes are intimate, home-style affairs at the Toscana Mia farmhouse. You can choose from several single, half-day classes or packages that include daily classes from between two and five days. Each session includes a five-course meal and wine pairings. For parents with kids in tow, there are special family classes, too.

Ecco La Cucina

Ecco La Cucina

You’ll amaze your friends at your next dinner party if you’ve spent a session with the chefs at Ecco La Cucina. The classes offered are either single-day or weeklong sessions; for a full-immersion experience, choose the latter for tours of wineries and villages, and accommodations in 18th-century estates or farmhouses.

Tuscan Culinary

Tuscan Culinary

At this small cooking school in Cortona, a one-day class will teach you everything you need to know about creating a typical Tuscan meal—including menu planning, shopping for ingredients at local markets, and cooking. If you have more time, weeklong “culinary vacations” focusing on traditional Tuscan home cooking and wine are offered, too.
