Cooking & Other Activities

Learn to cook Italian style…

Cooking and fine food are an integral part of Italian culture and our cuisine is world renowned for its use of simple but delicious ingredients. For many students, one of the highlights of their stay here is the opportunity to take a cooking class with trained chef, Signora Lalla who will teach you how to make tasty, traditional Tuscan dishes in her cucina. After the class, you get to try your dishes over a glass of wine and take the recipe with you to impress friends and family when you get home!

Tuscan wine and olive oil tastings

Join us on a trip to the beautiful Podere di Pomaio, a local winery that produces delicious organic wines, for a tour of the vineyard and cellar before enjoying a special wine tasting with owners, brothers Jacopo and Marco Rossi. If you are tempted to buy some wine to enjoy later, you can take advantage of a special discount. We also organise olive oil tastings at Podere di Pomaiao (www.pomaio.it)

                                       

Initially I came to Cultura Italiana Arezzo for 4 weeks. Finally i stayed six. This in itself is evident enough about my time at the school and Arezzo. Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful professors, and a town that in many ways is symbolic for Tuscany. I hope I will return soon, and I look forward to it.
