Enjoy an hour in the kitchen with our good friend Stefania Balducci, a native of Assisi in Umbria, who has hosted cooking classes for our Chianti Experience groups since 2011. Her passion for cooking is rooted in the Italian tradition of cooking together with family in the home, helping her mother and grandmothers in the kitchen and learning their simple techniques for preparing fine and tasty meals.
You’ll be inspired by the joy and passion Stefania brings to her kitchen. She always emphasizes the importance of using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients.
In this session she’ll prepare three traditional dishes typical in the regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio at this time of year. Our menu will include panzanella (a salad made with stale bread); homemade ravioli filled with seasonal vegetables; and a moist cake made with fresh fruit. Recipes will be provided after the session.
