The AEF’s cooking course in Florence is designed to immerse you in Florence’s culture and lifestyle and teach you how to make authentic Italian dishes with a completely hands-on approach which enables you to make delicious multi-course Italian meals covering all the basic Italian cooking techniques, from pasta to meats, from drinks to desserts. Our Italian Cuisine course is designed for professionals in this sector, as well as for all lovers of good food. The lessons are offered by one of the best chefs in the Tuscan region. Students will prepare a complete menu in every class with a first course, second course and desserts.
The Mediterranean Diet, considered to be one of the healthiest and most economical in the world, has, of course, its secrets. A professional chef will explain the alchemy behind the flavors that make up the most famous and traditional Italian dishes-everything from pizza and lasagna to Escalopes of Veal with Marsala to Tiramisu! Special attention will be given to the regional cuisine of Tuscany, as well as to choosing menus that are appropriate for each season and occasion.
The Academia Europea di Firenze has very competent chefs, who will teach you with pleasure and will help you cook your own dishes.
Aside from regular courses our school offers a rich program of optional language and cultural activities (concerts, seminars, films, visits to museums and farms) as well as extra-curricular and recreational activities (parties, dinners, food and wine tasting, sports, etc.) which are offered every week to ensure the enjoyment and cultural fulfillment of the students.
Our students can choose from among the following types of accommodations:
- Private apartment. This is the best option for those who want to be completely autonomous and free to host friends and family. All apartments are furnished and equipped with kitchen utensils.
- Student apartment. This option allows students to share an apartment with other students (foreign and Italian). Apartments are well equipped and furnished.
- Family-stay. Living with an Italian family is a good way to practice the language and experience the Italian way of life. All families are used to hosting foreign students and willing to share with you their daily routines and traditions.
- Other solutions. It is also possible to reserve accommodations in pensions, hotels, residence or religious institutions.
