You magically will be able to turn flours into a beautiful , healthy , digestible sourdough bread and pizza made with selected ancient grain organic flours locally produced and an old starter that I have been using since 2010. You will learn the difference between a wild starter and commercial yeasts, you will know about nutritional properties of flours, how to choose them, you will learn kneading and bread folding techniques. For special pizza toppings, we shall go directly in the vegetable garden of the farm to pick your favourites! While the bread will be baking in the oven, we'll be eating a delicious pizza altogether al fresco. It will be fun & flour for one day! Escape the summer hot air of Florence for one night and enjoy the fresh air and beauty of Tuscan hills. You will go back home with your bread, our wild yeast and recipe and much more awareness on food. Ready for a healthy slow bread and pizza?
I have been welcoming Airbnb guests since 2013 and a super host since then. I make bread for all of my guests and many times I made it with them. As an active member of Slow Food movement, I keep myself updated with everything related to gastronomy. I have been running the farm since 2009, I grow my vegetables and olive trees. I’m passionate about healthy farm to table food, I think that our health depends on what we eat and that food can be our medicine. I would like to share with you my experience and knowledge. Come and visit me!
