Farm-to-KITCHEN Cooking Class: Flavors of Florence and Tuscany

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

When it comes to food, Italians know best. Join us in The KITCHEN at The Boston Public Market for a seasonal & local twist on the traditional flavors of Florintine and Tuscan Flavors at our Farm-to-KITCHEN hands-on cooking class! Lieza Dagher, Director of The KITCHEN, will lead this cooking class emphasizing the rustic recipes she learned while living right outside Florence in Tuscany, Italy for several years. She spent her time abroad exploring Italian markets, cooking with locals, and mastering traditional cooking techniques. Lieza's recipes will awaken your senses and introduce you to new options for flavorful meals at home.

The majority of ingredients for the class will be straight from The Boston Public Market, proving you can buy local, eat local and still achieve international flavors.

Each course will be paired with a tasting of local wines from The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

In this combination demo and hands-on cooking class, Lieza will demonstrate the tools and techniques of classic Italian recipes celebrating local spring ingredients. She will then lead the class through making a three course seasonal meal.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:

  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.
  • During each class, you’ll learn 2 or 3 recipes, you’ll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and you’ll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.
  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.

Cost is $52 for Trustees member and $65 for Non-Trustees Members. Members must bring their current member card and number. Join The Trustees and save! Members save between 20-40% off all classes in The KITCHEN.
