Fresh Homemade Pasta and Gnocchi Lesson in Florence

 Join us in the Italian tradition of making fresh pasta 100% from scratch. This complete culinary lesson in Florence takes place in a home-setting with a local Florentine pasta expert. During this hands-on cooking class in Florence, we'll make 3 types of pasta: gnocchi, ravioli and tagliatelle and homemade dessert like Tuscan biscotti, Tiramisu' or seasonal fruit based desserts- like panna cotta with strawberry compote or cherry crostata! You'll learn to make pasta sauces from scratch (tomato, artichoke and pancetta, sage and butter, Tuscan meat sauce, etc) with easy-to-follow recipes to take home. We'll get our aprons on, get messy, sip prosecco and have fun while cooking.  The lesson will end with a leisurely meal over wine, friends, our freshly made pasta creations and dessert.
