Italian Cooking and Cuisine

Checking out a few Italian cooking courses in Italy I came across
a few good ones.

Divina Cucina in Florence. They offer one to five day
cooking trips from $375 to $1300. The average day sounds really cool. You’ll head out to the Central Market and plan a
custom menu based on the season’s best ingredients. Then you’ll tour the market, sampling some of the best-tasting
olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cheeses, in the world. After shopping, you hit the wine shop and get a bottle hand-picked
by the local sommelier. Something to match the menu, of course. Then, everyone heads back to the kitchen to learn how
to whip up some delicious Italian fare.

Another place in Tuscanny is Casa Ombuto run by Paola Baccetti in
Casa Ombuto and Franco Palandra in Torre del Tartufo. The classes were mentioned on CNN and teach four of the most
popular cuisines in Europe and North Africa.

Bon gusto!
