A new cooking school/catering business/event venue has opened a few doors from my apartment. I met the owners and had a little sample of their yummy aperitivo. They can take you on market tours followed by cooking classes designed for you in groups of two to forty in their beautiful kitchens. If you would rather not cook, meals can be prepared and served at the tables in front of the kitchen. This is a great location for business dinners, anniversary parties, or any type of gathering.So many great restaurants here in Florence! Everything from modern cuisine to tradional, and pizza, of course. Chia and I are trying various pizza places to determine our favorite. Happily all the walking we do keeps the pizza pounds off!
