Eating in Florence

Bobo runs one of my favorite Florence restaurants, Antica Trattoria da Tito, with attitude. And sometimes that attitude puts off my readers. But once you embrace Bobo’s devil-may-care flair for fun and dining, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable meal.

With so many travelers into food these days, food tours and cooking classes have become a big deal all over Europe. And a cooking class is a perfect example of how we, as part of our bus tours, encourage our travelers to roll up their sleeves and dig into the local culture through real experiences. I love to bump into our tours while in Europe doing my research. And just the other day I met one of our Venice/Florence/Rome tour groups and joined them for lunch. But first, we had to cook the meal. Fun and enthusiastic Fabrizio (of the In Tavola cooking school) had five mini-kitchens set up for our group where he and his staff led us through a marvelous 90 minutes of cooking fun.

  1. Magnifico!

    I see Trish enjoyed her meal that night. I’m hoping to have this experience in October when I’m on the V/F/R tour.

    Happy Birthday Rick!

  2. Sorry, no cooking class for me! When in Italy I want to eat food made by the masters!

  3. I took a cooking class at Tavola in Florence last April. What an experience! And the food! When I came home I made the exact meal for my family, and they were very impressed.
