Why a cooking class with me?
My name is Giulia, I am a 34 years old foodblogger, food writer and food photographer.
I work with my partner Tommaso to offer you the most authentic experiences in Tuscany: we shop at the local markets, we talk with the producers, we plan the menu together according to the season. Our cooking classes are hands-on, as I believe that we learn by doing – and after all it’s fun to knead your ball of pasta dough, isn’t it?
To get to know Tuscany better, we visit local farms where we have the chance to know the best local typical products such as pecorino cheese, cinta senese porks, chianina cows, wine and olive oil.
I’ve been living in the Tuscan countryside since I was born, in the same house where my father was born and my grandmother was born. Tuscany is my daily life and the landscape I see from my bedroom window each morning.
When I am abroad, I am often asked about my country, our typical wine and food, nature and small villages sitting at the top of the hills. I started seeing my home land through the eyes of foreign people and I discovered a new point of view, new colours, fresh emotions, genuine flavours and tantalizing scents. I deeply fell in love with the vision that foreigners have of Tuscany.
How does it work?
The class is held in Juls’ kitchen, located in a traditional country house in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, between Siena and Florence. By request, the class can be held in your rented villa or apartment (cooking class open to a maximum of 10 people, more people are welcome to have dinner). The course will be held in English.
A private driver can be arranged on request for pick-up and drop-off (price not included). A photographer can be hired to take photos of your class, giving you precious memories of the experience (price not included). Vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options are always available on request.
