A Cooking Class in Lucca

Where better to learn about cooking than in Italy? That's what my sister and I did on our recent trip to Lucca, in Tuscany. Taught by Chef Giuseppe Mazzocchi, we started early where all good cooks start, at the market.

We followed our trip to the market with a jaunt to a panetteria. Look at that bread for our bruschetta.

Many of the people in our class were cooking class veterans, including my sister. But there is always more to learn.

The chef actually worked for many years here in Texas.

Risotta with Leeks and White Truffle Butter. Veal Saltimbocca. 

Bucchelatto and Lemon Custard.

Buon Appetito!

It was a wonderful day.

    1. The food was delicious, and the company was delightful.

  2. What better way to end a lesson, tast the food you cooked.
    ps it was a butterfly

    1. If all lessons ended like this one, we'd have many more happy students.

  3. That looks like so much fun!
    I hope that I get to experience that one day!

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. What fun! That bread is unbelievable! Thank you for sharing these excellent photos. I'd love to travel to Tuscany!

  7. What a fabulous class! The finished dishes look delicious. Although I'm not much of a cook (my husband actually cooks all our meals), I'd enjoy learning techniques from the masters like you did.
    My Saturday Snapshot post features magnificent views of Mount St. Helens.

  8. What a wonderful holiday. I love the idea of going somewhere interesting, and learning too.

  9. I love cooking classes so this would be awesome!
