  • intensive Food and Wine courses
An intensive 2 day course where guests are introduced to some of the most authentic traditional Tuscan dishes by chef Benedetta Vitali. The course develops over 2 days of morning and afternoon cooking classes.
From the typical “schiacciata”, a kind of flat bread flavoured with extra virgin olive oil and salt to the dessert, passing through the “pasta” world, without forgetting meat and vegetables, our guests will make a journey through the excellences of the Tuscan products. They will follow our chef’s teaching actively contributing to the preparation of the different dishes.
The informal and intimate atmosphere of the abbey’s private dining room, where lunches and dinners are served after the cooking classes, is the perfect frame for a unique experience where fun and professionalism are wisely mixed. The final touch is the selection of the Badia a Coltibuono wines well paired with the prepared menu which brings out flavours and aromas of the food.
