Lino, owner and chef of the restaurant, was also President of the Florentine Chefs Association. The Italian cuisine is known all over the world: pizza and pasta have become commun dishes in many places. But the Italian cuisine is much more than this and varies from region to region. The cooking course "Da Lino" gives you the opportunity of getting to know the Tuscan and Florentine food, studying under a very experienced chef who during the course will share some of his culinary secrets with you.
The restaurant "Da Lino" is one of the best known among the traditional restaurants of Florence. Lino, the owner and chef of the restaurant, was also the president of the Florentine Chefs Association. The course program "Da Lino" covers traditional Italian as well as Tuscan dishes, which have been revisited and renovated with the great knowledge and professional approach of a very fine chef. Within a wide menu that includes all the main dishes of Italian cuisine, you will find some popular specialties of Tuscan cuisine such as:
- Pasta e fagioli
- Minestra di farro
- Acqua cotta
- Pappa al pomodoro.
- Trippa alla fiorentina
- Spezzatino di manzo
- Baccalà alla livornese
- Torta della nonna
The course is completed with lessons of how to make home made pasta such as tagliatelle, ravioli di ricotta e spinaci, tortelli di patate, tortellini, gnocchi and pici. Each lesson ends up with the participants dining on the dishes they have prepared accompanied by a suitable wine. The menu constantly evolves and changes, taking into consideration students' differing interests and requests. The program revolves around the seasons, as Lino prefers to always work with fresh ingredients rather than with frozen ones.
