We'll meet in Sant'Ambrogio, a district in the center of Florence, which will give you a taste for local lifestyle and culture. Not only is it a hub for Florentine life, but it is foodie central. I'll take you to the market and show you the most AMAZING, vibrant, seasonal produce, and introduce you to my friends at the market. They only let me get the freshest of zucchini, tomatoes, stone fruits, citrus, aromatic herbs, cheeses and salumis. Then I will show you the inside of the market with the local butchers, cheese and salumi guy. You'll get to try some local artisanal salumi & cheese before we move on to the bakery which makes biscotti you'll be dreaming about even after you return home, as well as the very best Tuscan bread you'll ever have. After we will return to my typical Florentine apartment in Sant'Ambrogio to cook our lunch while hearing the local hustle and bustle of the neighborhood while we cook for the most authentic experience. I'll help you get a genuine taste that is off the beaten path and not the typical fresh pasta experience. Once we are ready to cook we'll enjoy our fresh pasta with some of the best wine selected by me to showcase local Florentine wine I've experienced through my quotidian life here, and my wine studies.
I'm originally from New York and worked in advertising, packed up my life and moved with my dog to Florence. I left a successful career to pursue my passions and love of Italian cuisine and wine, specifically fresh pasta! My culinary and wine training have taken place all in Florence, and through that time the Sant'Ambrogio neighborhood has become my new home. Every day I'm lucky enough to wake up and have my cappuccino in this bustling local neighborhood, visit my friends in the local Sant'Ambrogio market for the freshest vegetables, fruits, cheeses, biscotti, Tuscan bread and more. I'm literally living the dolce vita and I want to share my passion for the food, lifestyle and Italian cuisine with you
