Tuscan & Italian Cookery School - Florence
This cookery course, consisting of few hours, does not claim to turn the student into a skilled cook, but it will supply him with the basic techniques, enabling him to prepare excellent dishes, chosen among those of traditional Italian cuisine, and particularly of Tuscan and Florentine one.
Under the teachers’ expert guidance, the student will learn the secrets to make up several dishes, following every stage step by step. So, starting from the single ingredients, he will learn to blend them into a harmonious whole. The resulting dish will stimulate all the senses one by one: sight (the way in which the food is presented), smell (its scents), touch (cold-hot, crisp-tender contrast) and finally taste (flavours’ harmony and balance).
Particular attention will be paid both to cooking times and temperatures, and to traditions and historical origins of each recipe.
The way in which the food is presented is very important too. In fact an accurate presentation favours the success of a dish, as it appetize for a better tasting.
