ITALIAN HOME COOKING
Home Cooking: the Essence of Italian Gastronomy
“As we say in Italian cooking, every ingredient is a gift from nature, and we cherish each one’s unique flavor,” emphasizes Ms. Gaia, one of our Italian Home Cooking instructors.
In Italy, a deep-rooted love and reverence for nature form the foundation of all handcrafted products, whether in the realm of culinary or visual arts.
Home-cooked meals exude a delicious warmth and represent the embodiment of family tradition, passed down through generations, capturing the essence of familial tastes. This is something that can never be replicated in the sterile environment of a culinary school.
Our dishes are swiftly prepared using fresh, natural ingredients, seasoned by the keen eye, resulting in flavors that are truly exceptional and unrivaled by any restaurant.
Italian Home Cooking is more than just about learning recipes; it embodies the spirit of sharing and savoring delightful moments. In a typical Italian home, there is always an abundance of food, ensuring that even unexpected guests can join in, creating joyful moments together.
This program offers a unique opportunity to directly experience this Italian spirit, allowing you to rediscover the authentic fragrance of fresh ingredients and the preciousness of shared time and the joy of life itself.
Some reasons on why FCAS Italian Home Cooking is different from other cooking courses.
1. Lessons are held 4 days/week 3-4 hours each day. In just a month, students can learn and practice up to around 65 recipes.
2. Lessons are held in a small group of max 6 participants, followed by a lunch (or dinner) together. Participants will also visit the Central Market of Florence guided by their interpreter to get familiar with the Italian fresh ingredients.
