Compliment your visit to Cortona and Tuscany with an educational and cultural cooking, food and wine experience that will last a lifetime!
Join Toscana Americana Workshops Producing Director Patrick Mahoney for a full or half-day of cooking in historic Cortona. We will go beyond the common notions of Italian cooking as spaghetti & meatballs and pizza and explore Tuscany’s rich culinary traditions from the wonderful flavors of the “poor kitchen” to modern and contemporary dishes…all using the finest local ingredients available such as meats and game, cheeses, olive oils, breads, wines and seasonal vegetables. Sessions are conducted with English translation.
Half-Day cooking events include hands-on cooking in the kitchen and enjoying the dishes as we go! The session will start with shopping locally in Cortona for fresh ingredients. You will learn about selecting and preparing the foods used to create the dishes. Appetizers, homemade pastas & sauce, a main dish, and dessert will be covered. Accompanying the event will be tastings of local wines from Cortona. Menus will vary depending upon what is seasonal and available. Day sessions begin at 8:30am and end approximately 1:00pm. Approximately four and one half hours.
Price: €160,00 per person, minimum two people / maximum 4 people.
Price does not include transportation to or from the session location.
