It is a two hour course, during which you can learn to cook - and then will have the pleasure to eat - a total of four traditional Tuscan dishes. Naturally accompanied by a good glass of Chianti. It is all happening in the lovely pavilion where even the breakfast is served in the morning with a buffet of homemade cakes, cold cuts and hot dishes (at an extra price, to order).

If you prefer to stay in, you can always ask Lorenzo if he can throw a light meal together for you, which is never a problem, time allowing. So if you already know the previous day, let him know that you will be either having lunch or dinner "at home", and the restaurant will be open for you, serving antipiasti, pasta dishes and dessert.
