What you'll do

Welcoming you to the Locanda we'll go inside the kitchen and talk about what we're going to make. We'll prepare the mixture for the Italian sweet biscuits 'Cantucci' with almonds and get them ready for the oven.
Then we'll set to work on the home-made pasta or gnocchi. Each day we may do a slightly different dish making Italian recipes such as Carbonara or Ragù (bolognese sauce) using plant-based ingredients and a traditional pasta machine!
Once we've prepared the meal we're ready to eat it! If it's nice weather we'll go outside under the pergola looking at at Florence with a glass of organic vegan wine!

Hello! We're Rose and Lara and we're passionate about finding the best Italy has to offer for everybody! For this vegan experience we work with Cinzia, a specialist in vegan, plant-based, raw and gluten free cooking! She's opened and managed 2 vegan restaurants in Florence before moving to the peaceful olive groves of her country house where she holds cooking classes. She likes to work with traditional Italian cuisine and let the nature inspire our food. While you eat you can look out at the spectacular views of Florence! She even provides catering and food and wine tours in Tuscany.

Where you'll be

We will be in my house just a few kilometres from the Duomo of Florence and we will eat in the garden if it's warm enough. There are traffic restrictions for cars in the city centre of Florence but there is an easy bus to get here. Otherwise a 10-15 minute taxi I can help you with.

My fiance and I can't express how much we loved this experience! As vegans, finding a vegan cooking class in the Tuscan hills just outside of Florence was incredible, and we jumped at the chance not knowing what it would be like. We took a taxi from the centre of Florence, costing us around 15 euros. When we arrived, it was a walk up the private driveway to the house. Our host offered to pick us up, however, we decided to walk. When we reached the house we were welcomed by a breathtaking view of Florence and her Duomo in the distance, something we hadn't expected! We were welcomed by our host and her two four-legged companions, and led inside to the kitchens. We were given aprons, and after a brief introduction we jumped straight in with the cooking! Two hours later we had finished making fresh Tagliatelle with a carbonara sauce, as well as homemade mayonnaise and chocolate cupcakes for dessert. We ate our meal in the living room with an incredible view over Florence, and were served a glass of vegan wine each. Afterwards, we wandered outside to enjoy our wine whilst admiring the view. Overall, it was an incredible experience and one of our highlights of our two-week trip throughout Italy. I would recommend this to everyone, especially vegans!

Despite I’m italian I never had the chance to learn how to make homemade/handmade pasta. I think it is amazing that experiences like these can be found so that people can not only directly learn about culinary traditions but also approach plant based cuisine in a fun and positive way. I felt like home and eating our homemade food afterwards all together was the highlight of the experience. The location is absolutely breathtaking too and being so close to the centre of Florence makes it even better Nonostante io sia italiana non ho mai avuto l’opportunità di imparare a fare la pasta fatta in casa. Trovo fantastico che vengano organizzate esperienze di questo genere anche per dare la possibilità alle persone non solo di imparare qualcosa di genuino e tradizionale, ma anche di avvicinarsi alla meravigliosa cucina vegetale. Mi sono sentita come a casa e pranzare poi tutti insieme alla fine è stato davvero un momento che ricorderò piacevolmente. Anche la location è davvero unica e la vicinanza al centro di Firenze rende il tutto ancor più piacevole.

The cooking class was fantastic and we had a lot of fun! We made delicious Italian biscuits with toasted nuts and all natural fresh ingredients which made the whole kitchen smell with a baking smell while we rolled out our pasta dough and made tagliatelle! We learnt so much I wouldn't ever be able to try on my own and it felt such a great Italian experience with an expert Italian cook. The kitchen is also super cosy and the house is in a beautiful green part of Florence where you can see the Duomo and the rooftops of the city.
