His passion and knowledge of Tuscan and international haute cuisine make him the perfect Chef At Home. Francesco uses all local ingredients and works throughout Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio.
“We will cook the traditional dishes of Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio together. Vegetarians or vegans can be accommodated. Our courses will be rich in flavour and taste and are very genuine, mostly using produce and herbs harvested from the garden. Lessons will be based on authentic cuisine taught to us by our moms and grandmothers. The recipes will be seasonal, because this area offers excellent culinary products. To start, I’ll present the raw ingredients that we will use. We will start with a nice welcome snack or breakfast Rosso Montepulciano house wine, coffee, water included in the price. Then I’ll show you different techniques for hand-making noodles, pies, dumplings, stuffed pasta, and pizza. You’ll learn techniques for sauces, roasting, and different types of cooking. Then we’ll all sit together at a table and celebrate our preparations with a wonderful five-course dinner immersed in nature.” Francesco
