Tuscan Cooking with Giancarlo Caldesi for Two
Respected Italian chef Giancarlo Caldesi teaches the intricacies of Tuscan cuisine at La Cucina Caldesi - this experience is a great opportunity to learn how to create traditional Tuscan dishes, such as 'the hunter's catch' roast or his signature Tuscan lasagne with an array of seasonal 'contorni' (side dishes). Meet for coffee and biscotti, chat through the menu and then the class gets to work. This is cooking made easy, with all mod cons and ingredients already prepared in advance. Once the cooking is complete, the whole class can sit down together, Italian style, to enjoy the delicious meal created. A good glass of Italian wine helps wash the food down.
