What is included:

DE GUSTIBUS

Se mentre mangi con gusto non hai allato a tia (accanto a te) una pirsona (persona) che mangia con pari gusto, allora il piaciri (piacere) del mangiare è come offuscato, diminuito.
If while you are eating you are not joined by someone eating with similar gusto, then the pleasure of eating is tarnished
If you agree with what affirmed by Andrea Camilleri in his book “Montalbano’s First Case” (la prima Indagine di Montalbano) as we do and you believe that eating in company is one of the greatest joys of life, this package is right one for you. Designed for lovers of Italian cuisine, this package will offer you the chance to taste, experience and cook. Over two weeks, in addition to the complete Italian language and culture course and the weekly activities, you will have the chance to attend:

2  PRACTICE COOKING CLASSES

Together with the experienced cook of our school, preparing and tasting some extraordinary taste of the Italian cuisine  homemade pasta, some “Schiacciata”, the Florentine crispy flat breads to be served, Bruschetta or Tiramisù.

2 LESSONS ON “ITALIAN FOR COOKING”:

The goal is to learn to read a recipe, to learn the names of the ingredients ( “un pizzico di sale” (a pinch of salt), “una spruzzata di limone” (a squeeze of lemon), the kitchen tools (pan, ladle, grater …) and activities (fry, strain pasta, etc).

1 FLORENTINE LUNCH “DAL TRIPPAIO”, the lampredotto tripe sandwich street food experience:

No one can come to Florence without trying the experience of ordering a Florentine tripe dish or a lampredotto tripe sandwich at one of the street stands in the city. Better if  accompanied by a glass of red wine or a “spuma bionda”.

GOODBYE DINNER

At the end of the course we meet in one of the excellent local restaurants to chat in front of a good plate of spaghetti or a delicious tiramisù! Taste the Italian Cuisine!
