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.
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.
