 Cooking with the Family 


Did you ever want to have your children get first hand knowledge of the basics of Tuscan cuisine?  Cooking together as a family is an enriching experience for every member of the family and your children may be learning culinary traditions that will stay with them forever.


It's well understood that children who are involved in preparing food for the family are generally not picky eaters; they are adventuresome and appreciative of the process, developing a lifelong love of the rituals of the table. 


The acclaimed chef and restaurateur, Signora Anna Bini, will hold the class for the family in her kitchen with the ingredients you will buy at the Mercato Centrale. 


Your child will be introduced to the idea of Slow Food in Italy and why it has become a world-wide movement.



Proposed Activities:


Market to table cooking class with the well-known Anna Bini of


Market to table cooking class for an early spring menu with Gilda


Walking Tour of Florence with an Art History faculty member of the University of Florence


Foodie walk for the sweet tooth to judge the best gelatos, chocolates and pastries


Guided tour of Siena, with visits to other medieval walled towns near Florence


On site art instruction for your child with professional art teachers who will take him or her around the city, building over several days their knowledge of the wealth of art in Florence
