This has been the most intense and rewarding cooking class season so far. In this episode, I want to bring you with me during a cooking class. I’ve been teaching Tuscan cooking classes for 8 years now, since I left my 9-to-5 job at the end of 2011. Now it is 5 years that I’ve been working with Tommaso – and one year ago I married him, too! – in this big life project that we call Juls’ Kitchen.
Cooking classes are just a part of it, along with recipe development and food photography for magazines and food brands, writing cookbooks, writing a 10-year-old blog and a newsletter, hosting a podcast and so forth. I’ll talk more about these aspects of our job in one of the next episodes, if you are interested, but for the moment I’d love to tell you something more about the cooking classes, or, as we define them, the edible experiences that you can have with us here in Tuscany.
Discover the three experience we offer, join us for a market tour or a farm tour, and meet new friends around a kitchen table.

So, if you love Italian language as much as you love Italian cooking, these are a few words that can be useful for you.
Today’s word is mercato, M – E – R – C – A – T – O
Market vs farmers’ market
Weekly market – unless you’re so lucky to live close to one of the big covered market like Sant’Ambrogio, or San Lorenzo market in Florence…
