Come and cook with me in Tuscany !

Hello ! My name is Chicca Maione and my passion is teaching people how to cook, sharing my secrets of authentic Italian cooking. For over 15 years, I have welcomed friends and guests from all over the world into my home; they have chopped vegetables, kneaded fresh pasta dough, prepared tiramisu and enjoyed their prepared meal with a world-class Bolgheri wine. My cooking school operates through my culinary association, Cooking in Tuscany.  Join me in my kitchen at La Casa Toscana for a memorable, authentic Italian meal in the heart of beautiful Tuscany. Because food brings people together!

We offer a variety of cooking classes, all hands-on; you will be involved in every stage and make everything from scratch. We will prepare a complete menu from antipasti to dessert using traditional recipes passed down in my family for generations. We’ll pair fresh, seasonal ingredients with world-class Tuscan wines. You will never be hungry !
Classes are fun and easy going, yet informative where you will learn lots of great tips and tricks to take home. Perfetto !

Cooking classes after Covid 19
Over the past month, as we are missing people cooking together in our kitchen, we started a new online adventure. We offered several virtual cooking classes
LIVE from Tuscany, to bring delicious food experiences and the flavors of Tuscany right to your home.
They’ve been very popular and we enjoyed it very much as we were able to connect with friends across the ocean and make new virtual friends. We loved it and we’ll keep doing it for the next months with a lot of upcoming virtual classes!

Together with our expert team, we’re  planning next seasons! We’ll cook together, and through a membership you’ll get 6 online cooking classes per season (2 per month) and exclusive content/special updates from Chicca through a members website and facebook group. We’ve set a new booking system to our website, to make reserving your online classes easier!

We hope that when it will be possible and safe, y’all come back to Tuscany for a big hug!
For now, let’s keep cooking together, which is for me always  the best way to show your love to others and yourself in good and hard times.
