Does anyone recommend a good cooking class either in Florence or Tuscany?

I enjoyed the class and wine tasting from Accidental Tourist. They pick you up in Florence and drive out to a nice villa and then a private home for the cooking lesson. Lunch is what you cooked.

Are you after a one-day class, three-day or what? My wife and I both attended a wonderful one-day class at Scoula de Arte Cucina in Florence. We really enjoyed the class and the instructors. 468 Euro for two people. Their website can be viewed at There is also Judy Witts Francini is known as "Diva" on another travel site. Her one-day class is a bit more expensive but both schools seem to be very good.

Hi Des,
My Mom and I attended a cooking class at Badia A Coltibouno. This is about a 1-hour drive from Florence. They have 1, 3 or 5 day courses. I can't rave enough about this place. The cost is 155 Euro, but it was a great memory that we will have forever. You go home with the recipes for the 5-6 dishes that you make. We went in October, and we decided to relive our Italian holiday and cook the same recipes for Christmas Eve Dinner! Check it out:
