    Cooking Up a Perfect Sienese Meal

Cooking Up a Perfect Sienese Meal

  • City: Siena
  • Duration: Approximately 4 hours.

Get an authentic taste of Italy in this 4-hour cooking class in Siena. Led by Chef Lella Cesari Ciampoli, you will learn how to craft an ample spread of Tuscan favorites.


If you dream of spending your morning learning how to cook a traditional Tuscan meal, this hands-on experience can help you fulfill that dream and come away with beautiful memories. Chef Lella's cooking class takes place in her culinary school located in the heart of Siena, just a short walk from Piazza del Campo. Siena's cuisine is known to be simple yet flavorful, and is distinguished by the excellence of the ingredients.

During this half-day private cooking class, Chef Lella and her assistant, Jackie, will teach you how to prepare a typical Sienese menu from antipasti to dessert, including a dish of fresh, handmade pasta in a sauce that varies with the season.

At the conclusion of this hands-on lesson, you will get to sit down and enjoy the delicious meal you have personally prepared, accompanied by a glass of excellent Tuscan wine. Participants will receive a booklet with the recipes in English so you can repeat this wonderful experience in your own home kitchen.
