Roll up your sleeves and dig into a bowl of fresh pasta dough with this hands-on cooking class in Florence. Learn to make different kinds of pasta shells, and stuff them with savory fillings like mushroom, spinach, shrimp and pumpkin. Whip up authentic sauces and taste Italian wines for the perfect pairings, and indulge in your homemade dishes fresh from the oven. Class size is limited to eight for personalized attention from the instructor.
What to Expect
In this class, you’ll learn how to prepare the two main types of dough best suited for filled pastas: egg (all’uovo) and flour-and-water (all’acqua) or may be also another one, as colored pasta with vegetables or squid ink. Each pasta is paired with its own delectable sauce. The chef will welcome you in her cozy kitchen on the second floor of a historic building.

Ingredients used in each dish are organic, seasonal and locally-sourced. Upon request, this class can be vegetarian. The intimate classes are a great way to meet fellow, food-minded travelers in Florence. Come for the food and leave with a full belly and new friends.

Please note: menu options are subject to change, based on what is seasonally and locally available. Additionally, due to the nature of this tour, this class does not provide a gluten-free option and lactose free
