La Cucina Kasher in Toscana is the ultimate combination of a kosher
cooking program in Tuscany, shopping, sightseeing and experiencing the
true feeling of being a guest in Italy, not a tourist. You will meet
with leaders of the Jewish community of Florence. Both the novice and
experienced cook will feel comfortable in an informal, fun environment.
A non-cooking spouse or friend may accompany you, and will participate
in all activities and meals.
THE COOKING CLASSES
There are five days of
cooking, hands-on, three hours each, specializing in Tuscan and regional
cooking. Classes are in English and printed recipes are provided. Emphasis
will be on preparation, presentation and the historical aspects of cooking.
Following each class, you will partake of the meal that has been prepared,
accompanied by the appropriate wines. A visit to the open air markets
will allow you to learn about and select ingredients to be used in class.
At the completion of the program, you will be presented with a certificate.
Kosher supervision is provided by the mashgiach on the cooking school premises. While away from Florence we will enjoy meals which have been prepared for us, by the instructors, under the supervision of the mashgiach.
