Cooking Classes at Casa Howard Florence

Cooking Classes at Casa Howard Florence

Cooking a typical 3 or 4 course Italian lunch or dinner in Casa Howard’s premises (if you stay 3 nights or longer), or at our Partner’s professional kitchen - at walking distance - when you are more than 4 – in a utterly relaxed atmosphere

How to Book
To book contact the Booking Office via email info@casahoward.it or through the On Request Booking Form.
(2) our cooking classes apply to Florence only; they cannot be booked online; please add in the special requirements box on the form or in the email what package you would like to book: A, B, C or D):

  • Includes wines (Frescobaldi, or D’Amico if white wine is preferred) with lunch and dinner
  • You will enjoy coffee at the end of the meal, plus an ‘amaro’ or vinsanto (upstairs at CH first floor if course has been held here)
  • All courses include the making of fresh pasta with sauce
  • Courses to last around 3-4 hours of tuition, then eating the meal at the end so about 5 hours in total. Morning courses usually include a guided walking trip to the veg and meat Market (in every weather condition) so it may be 1 hour or more longer (back with taxi if tired)
  • Courses are in English (if a different language is requested, an added fee for a professional translator would be charged, unless the class is in French in our premises); 2 persons minimum must attend (alternatively a double fee will be charged)
  • Max 8 people when courses are held out-of-Casa Howard’s premises to ensure personal attention from the Chef!

Consider that in January, February, March, July, August, November and December our packages (staying + class) are at their lowest.

We also offer a special cooking course just for pasta and bread making (you are kindly asked to specify if you require this!). We have lots of requests for pasta making courses where our wonderful Guests just want to focus on pasta making with different sauces and different types of pasta and also making Italian bread.

Of course we can be flexible, should you have particular requests, but this gives you a guideline of what our Guests like mostly... Vegeterian cooking classes can also be catered for, please specify when booking (please also specify allergies in advance).

Some uncommon pasta, brioche cake (salted), meat, venison or game, and cake recipes, which have been Family secrets for a long long time, could be taught at Casa Howard’s premises (on the second day lesson, in the cold months only).

We might hold the courses outside Casa Howard, not far from the guesthouse, when groups are larger than 4 or when particular conditions occur, at the same rates. The months of January, February, March, July, August, November and December are considered Low Season and our packages (staying and class) are at their lowest…

(* classes at Casa Howard’s premises may be held in the courtyard - outside! - when convenient : no waste of time and maximization of your investment!)

Room rates to be considered in 'double occupancy' even for a single student
