The Chianti cooking school, which is run and operated by us and our professional cooking staff, offers cooking classes in different forms, and with content spanning from traditional and rustic – such as Cucina Povera – to contemporary and sophisticated, fruit of our long experience in Tuscan and Italian cuisine through our restaurants in Chianti and in Florence.
Our in-house cooking class at Villa Bordoni is held in the hotel’s open kitchen, centred around our beautiful, custom built Molténi range. This class is open to both residents and non-residents. The setting is an historic Villa dating back to the renaissance, nestled amongst its own Vineyards and Olive groves in the high valley of the Greve river, close to the medieval village of Montefioralle.
These experiences culminate in dinner based entirely on what was prepared during the lesson.
All of our lessons can be personalized on request, and we are used to catering for very specific needs – be they dietary restrictions or preferences, requests for lessons appropriate for children, or closed groups and different levels of expertise.
Our cooking classes can be booked directly online, on our official Chianti Cooking School website:
