Restaurants/One Day Cooking Classes near Siena

  • 3

Renting a villa in Castelnuovo Berardenga next September for a week. Would like recommendations for dinners but also for one day cooking classes nearby. Particularly would like an excellent pizza making and/or gnocchi making class. Took a 1 day pizza making class in NYC last year but always looking to get better.

  1. Pamela Sheldon Johns is about 45 minutes from you. She does one day cooking classes at her farm.

    And Judy Francini (divinacucina) does market tours and cooking classes in Colle Val d'Elsa, about 45 minutes from you.

    Both could easily do a gnocchi or pizza class I think.

    1. Also check out Ecco La Cucina (www.eccolacucina.com). I took a class with Gina here in the U.S. and really enjoyed it.

      1. Thank you both, I will check these out!
