Description

With its wooded rolling green hills, perfect Renaissance cities and some of the greatest art in the world, Tuscany has been attracting hordes of tourists since the days of the Grand Tour. The cooking of Tuscany has as much interest as its famed tourist attractions.

Known as the “mangiafaglioli” (bean eaters) the Tuscans have as much variety in their cuisine as they have in their artistic heritage.

This is what we will explore in our Tuscan classes.

What are my classes about?

  • Classes are interactive demonstrations, held at my home in Richmond.
  • I cater for a minimum of 4 people to a maximum of 8 people.
  • You will be welcomed into my home to enjoy a three course meal with a complimentary glass of wine, plus finger food before the meal.
  • Informal and highly entertaining, you will see each course prepared, cooked and then served at the dining table.
  • A full set of recipes for all the dishes prepared will be provided on the night and also emailed to you after the class.
  • The guests are expected to arrive at 6.30pm and classes will be over between 10 and 10.30pm.
  • If you would like more information please contact Sandra by emailing lacucina.disandra@ozemail.com.au.

Email us to take advantage of our SPECIAL OFFERS if you attend more than one class and for booking a class for 6 to 8 people, a real bargain!

FEEDBACK ON MY CLASSES:

As much as I loved the food and watching it being prepared in front of me, I think the part that I liked most was the lady herself. Sandra is clearly a lover of creativity and style and she shares a special intimacy with her participants that makes her lessons very real and honest. Attending a La Cucina Di Sandra cooking class is but a small invitation into Sandra’s world. Go visit the Italian lady in her beautiful Richmond home and get a taste of what REAL Italian cooking is all about. Thanks Sandra! Bree (www.imageffect.com.au) 

Before attending her class we had never met Sandra, but already we’re talking about how we can swing another trip to Melbourne. Sandra’s passion for Italy and generosity with her knowledge make this an experience worth travelling for. We drove eight hours from Adelaide to get to La Cucina di Sandra and it was indeed ‘vale la pena’ – worth the effort! Here’s all you need to know to book your own evening or buy a class for a friend. So go ahead – take a trip to Italy, if only for an evening. [Mary Louise (www.heartinabruzzo.me)]

We had a lovely time at Sandra's. The consistently delicious food and wealth of interesting info made it a very memorable experience. A seat at her table makes a perfect gift or an intimate alternative next time you feel like dining out!

What a fabulous & unique experience it was to be part of La Cucina Di Sandra! A birthday gift from my family. Sandra is not only a wonderful teacher, she is entertaining, knowledgeable, a magnificent cook, friendly and so welcoming into her eclectic home. To sit in her kitchen, watch her cook,listen to her stories, learn such helpful tips for cooking and shopping was only the start of what was an evening of joy. The best part was to eat the fruits of her labour at the dining table with other enthusiastic people. Delicious!! We experienced the Tuscan flavours on this occasion. Rich,simple,complex but definitely something you could replicate at home. Sandra’s recipes are practical and not complex which makes the whole experience so much better. Everyone enjoyed themselves

Thank you to the delightful and very real Sandra for welcoming us into her amazingly beautiful home and treating us to the most accessible, wonderful 4 course meal! Sandra’s conversation is so engaging as she steps us through the creation of each course, interrupted by us retiring to the magnificent dining table to eat (read inhale!) each one! With everything from where to shop hints to little morsels of simple hints, this course and this lady is a must! We’ll be back!!!
