Your Tuscany Cooking School Looks Forward to Welcoming You!

We also offer daily workshops. Daily workshops are 4 hours in length from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Offered year-round, the cost of the daily workshop is $250 per person, per class. to coordinate the best available dates for you.

Menus for each workshop are chosen seasonally with availability of fresh food products being of prime importance. Here are some of the typical menus available for our daily workshops.
