Whether you are staying in Florence or the countryside, cooking classes in Tuscany for families are the only way to truly appreciate local food and dig into Tuscan cuisine. Visiting a winery doesn’t mean just wine. Most wineries actually offer food experiences, too. Prepare pici pasta combined with a sauce based on seasonal vegetables and eat what you have prepared.
