What you'll do

Better than taking a trip to Florence!

All students will receive a recipe pack of the dishes we will be preparing.

We will briefly review the recipes before cooking.

We will begin our experience by preparing and enjoying a traditional, simple Tuscan appetizer. Next, we will start cooking our primo piatto (the first course), secondo piatto (the meat dish [we can accommodate vegetarians upon request]), contorno (side dish), and dolce (something sweet, but not necessarily your typical dessert).

We set the table Italian Family style and once everything is ready, we will sit down to dinner. We will then enjoy our dolce, and espresso if desired.

After our meal is complete, we will end the night with a short walk to the nearby private beach to watch the sunset or the stars come out, depending on when we complete dinner.

Your experience will be unforgettable, and especially since you take your recipe pack home, along with some very fond memories.

Meet your host, Carol

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
Ciao! Florentine and Tuscan cooking are what I do best. Why? Because I lived in Italy for ten years, married a Florentine, and owned and operated a restaurant in Florence. I'm home now, on the beach, a short ride from NYC. I would LOVE to teach you what I know about Italian cooking! In addition to being a chef and cooking instructor, I am also the author of "Caroleena's Tuscan Kitchen." My cookbook offers authentic, traditional, delicious Tuscan recipes. I am fluent in English, Italian, and Spanish, and can't wait to break bread with you!

Where you'll be

I live in a beach cottage. My kitchen is cozy and well designed for preparing both elaborate and simple meals. My home is a short walk to the Atlantic ocean on one of the cleanest private beaches in the country. After we finish dining, we will take a walk on the beach! It's salubrious!
