Cooking School Tuscany

What better place to brush up on your culinary skills than Tuscany? Tuscany is known for its spectacular fresh food and simple, hearty local dishes made from locally grown ingredients.
What we think of real Italian food back home is nowhere near what the chefs produce in Tuscany, here things are made differently. Whilst on holiday, learn how to cook Tuscan food like the locals do at a cooking school in Tuscany.

Do something different on your holiday and come home with cooking skills you can use in your own kitchen. Bring the taste of Tuscany back with you by learning how to make some of the most popular local dishes. Discover which ingredients to use and how to add a touch of Tuscan flavour.

There are plenty of Tuscan cooking schools which offer excellent courses. We have selected a few different cooking schools below for you to choose from.
