Tuscan Chef Little Kitchen

Tuscan Chef Little Kitchen is a small cosy place where you can spend a few hours cooking and enjoying the company of other people. You will learn some of the secrets of Tuscan/Italian cuisine and can then taste the food which has been prepared together.

The cooking school is located in via Umberto I, 140, in Montisi, a very pretty medieval hill top village near Siena, which is well worth a visit. The lessons are open to a maximum of 8-10 students and are totally hands-on. All the students will be involved in the preparation of each course. During the lesson, we will provide recipes to follow and drinks. There will be local wines paired with the meal. Students are welcome to bring their own wine.

We offer 3 types of lessons:

Tuesday (Sinalunga) and Thursday (Montepulciano) - A cooking lesson with a market visit.

This will be a fish and vegetable course. At the market there is no fresh meat available.

For example:
Simple appetizer
Risotto with sea food and shellfish or mushrooms or other seasonal vegetables
Fish course depending upon availability – fillet in potato crust with olives and marjoram or stuffed calamari

We will meet at the market at 8,30 am, spend 1 hour shopping and then go back to Montisi to cook. The lesson will end with an enjoyable lunch around 1 pm.

Full meal class - afternoon (morning on request)

4 courses including home-made pasta starting at 4 pm.

The menu will be set according to the season and we will take account of clients’ requests as much as possible.
