Florence Kosher Cooking Classes

Chef Gabri welcomes you to her state of the art kitchen for your Kosher cooking classes (vegetarian option also). Chef Gabri is an expert Kosher chef who has been leading cooking classes for over ten years.  She uses only high end products and produce sourced from local Tuscan farmers and Kosher artisans.  All of the meat products are from the official Kosher butcher in Florence, and all cheeses are made under strict Kosher guidelines by Florentine cheesemakers. Menus change seasonally, with a selection of vegetarian, meat and fish recipes too.  All cooking classes follow the Kosher guidelines by certified kosher producers.

Under Chef Gabri’s expert guidance, you’ll be slicing and dicing, rolling and kneading, as you prepare full-course Kosher menus of antipasto, pastas with sauce, a main course and dessert.  Her Kosher menus include antipasti, such as fave e cicorie, fava bean purée with vegetables, and anchovies with curly endive; pastas cover orecchiette with broccoli rape sauce along with ravioli from Mugello with potato filling and a savory rosemary sauce, and tagliatelle with slow cooked ragù.  Main dishes could include fresh tuna with peas, chicken roasted with oranges or sardines in a sweet and sour sauce. Or then again, you might learn how to prepare pizza di scarola, a savory pie with cheese, escarole and olives and a score of vegetarian sides such as Florentine spinach and melanzane scapece.  You’ll also create Kosher Tuscan desserts including crostata di zucca e amaretti, Kosher pumpkin pie and torta di mele, to name a few.

Following the cooking class, lunch or dinner is served and everyone dines on the foods prepared in class with a toast of Kosher wine included.  Additional wines, beverages and after-dinner liqueur are available at a surcharge.

Note:  The kitchen is Kosher and there is self- supervision from Chef Gabi.  If you require a formal certification there is an extra fee for the Rabi and Kosher certification.  Chef Gabri can arrange for official certification for Kosher foods used during the class, and also organize for a mashiach to be present to oversee the cooking class. Our chef states a certified Kosherut is not requested as a thorough cleaning and the use of stainless steel utensils, pots and pans (with disposable dishes and kosher ingredients and rules) meets the Kosher standard.  A Kosherut from the Rabi of Florence is available and the supplement is $300.
