Cooking with Carlotta

Giving you an authentic spoonful of Italy.

Enjoy the genuine taste of Tuscany

Why come here?

A small stone house in the hillside above Florence is the ideal place to learn what Italians really eat at home. We invite you to enjoy the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of my cooking classes as we prepare the meal together and enjoy it. One of the joys I love sharing in a class is when people see how easy it is to make fresh pasta at home. The menu is customized according to your taste, with generous servings of food and wine, with the pièce de résistance of your homemade pasta. For private classes, English-speaking babysitting, and transportation to our class, do not hesitate to contact us. I work with each of our clients to create individual menus that can be completed during your visit, also considering any special occasions, and your budget. I am happy to arrange a visit to a local winery for a tour and tasting. Or organizing a stay in a local holiday farm within walking distance of my kitchen.
