At the “Al Gelso Bianco” there are cooking courses for adults and childrens.

There are three basic courses: Tuscan Cuisine Cooking Course, Fresh Homemade Pasta Making Course and the Pizza and Biscuit Making Course.

The first two last about 3 hours after which there is a lunch where the participants, together with their teacher, eat the dishes they prepared and can taste the wines and extra virgin olive oil produced at our farm. The lunch is a convivial moment of tastings, learning and above all joy and fun. Children and adults that don’t take part in the cooking lesson are still invited to the lunch as well.

The needs of adults and children with food allergies and intolerances are taken into account. We also organise Vegetarian and Vegan Cooking Courses.

Fresh Homemade Pasta Making Course
The course is aimed at families and is held by the Stefania, the owner. “Ever since I was young, I saw my mother prepare tagliatelle, ravioli with vegetable and potato gnocchi for us 5 children… when my daughter Irene proposed this lovely activity to me back to my childhood memories made of smells, genuine tastes, sweetness and time to dedicate to cooking”.

During the course Stefania teaches how to prepare tagliatelle, ravioli, gnocchi, but also oven baked vegetables and an excellent apple cake!

Everyone loves this course and it is really an unmissable and unforgettable experience!!!
