"Alle Murate" is one of the top Florentine restaurants in all gourmet guides of Italy. The restaurant is located inside the historical “Palace of the Judges and Notaries Corporation", one of the most beautiful art discoveries in Florence of the last decades. The precious frescoes decorating the walls and the ceiling create a unique atmosphere.
The cooking course at "Alle Murate" is very practical and open only to one student at a time. A rare opportunity is provided of getting to know the life of a professional kitchen by participating with the team of cooks in the daily preparation of the restaurant's menu, from preparing the ingredients to completing the presentation of the dishes. This program covers all the dishes of the menu: starters, first courses of homemade pasta and soups, second courses of meat and fish, and desserts.
The cooking course is taught under the supervision of the restaurant director, a well-known chef and sommelier. The course has been designed to satisfy both the simple curiosity which some people have for Italian food, as well as the high motivation of those who want to learn the secrets of Italy's best traditional plates.
The instruction can be taken for one or two weeks to allow for either an introduction to each dish (starters, first and second courses, and desserts) or to give a more in-depth knowledge and skills to those who wish to stay the whole two weeks. The lessons take place from Tuesday through Saturday starting at 16.00 and continue with a dinner. There is some flexibility in the day of the week that a course can be started.
This Italian cooking course can be taken by anyone, amateur or professional. Enrollment in our Italian language courses is not required to follow this course. There is no minimum Italian language proficiency necessary to attend this program. Any knowledge of Italian is helpful, but the course has been taken successfully by individuals who speak no Italian.
