Professional Cooking Courses

The new Certificate Masters in Italian Cuisine
offered by our professional Cooking School in Florence

The beauty of Italian food is in its gastronomic diversity: each region has specialties, ingredients, and recipes that are unique. But no one wants to sit and just admire good food: you want to taste it and learn how to prepare and cook it!

The Master Certificate Programs allow you to experience Italian Cuisine in the cooking courses we designed at the Good Tastes of Tuscany culinary school. Our cooking training makes you discover how the traditional Italian recipes – you know only by name – change from the mountains to the coast, from north to south and from mainlands to the islands.

This means hands-on instructions and proper cooking training: the traditional way authentic dishes are cooked, the genuine ingredients that come from our countryside, the chemistry behind the preparation of recipes such as Ligurian pesto, Tuscan ravioli, Napoli’s pizza and Sicilian Cannoli.

Home for our Masters are the original kitchens of the 14th century Villa Pandolfini and the 13th century Tower Pandolfini. But there you will have the opportunity to taste our extra virgin olive oil and our wine along with the world renown Chianti red wine.

Not to mention the dishes of Tuscan tradition such as ribollita, pappa al pomodoro and Florence’s famous bistecca alla fiorentina, along with Italan traditions such as Rome’s spaghetti alla carbonara, Emilian Lasagna, the eggplant parmigiana, granita and Limoncello based on lemons.

Our Master Certificate Programs, have been designed to combine the traditional way of Italian cooking, the authentic recipes of the Italian millenary tradition, the diversity of regional cuisines, each with its strengths and, above all, the qualities that every passionate chef must necessarily possess.
