My name is Matteo i'm a Chef and i'm the co- founder of "IL MATTARELLO", a workshop with a shop selling fresh handmade pasta.
I obtained the qualification of Chef at the "Accademy of Taste". Cooking is a passion that was handed down to me by my grandmother first and then by my mother. I love to teach the art of Tuscan cuisine, in all its facets. For some years now, I have been practicing cooking lessons for both Italians and foreigners.

The experience with Matteo was fantastic. It started with him giving close consideration to my wife and my dietary restrictions and then creating a menu designed just for us. Upon arrival he greeted us with a glass of wine, showed us how to cook an amazing Tuscan meal and then allowed for us to eat with some privacy. We enjoyed is stories on the region, background on ingredients and many tips on how to prepare expert Italian meals. We recommend without hesitation and will surely return to Matteo's cafe for more good food and drink.

We had a wonderful afternoon with Matteo cooking and then enjoying a traditional 4 course Tuscan meal. Matteo was very flexible - we changed the time and then later added 2 people - and he was able to accommodate us without issue. It was a great activity for all of us to do together and one of the highlights of our trip. And the food was amazing - we're hoping we can recreate the magic once we get home!
