An Afternoon Encounter

Groups seeking a unique and entertaining culinary experience may join Benedetta for a private afternoon of tastings, demonstrations, and culinary lore to intrigue and amuse. During this intimate exploration of Tuscan cuisine, participants will observe the intricate workings of the kitchen under the direction of a master chef. Experience the secrets and camaraderie gained from sharing one of the most personal pleasures – cooking and eating together.


Whatever the occasion, or the nature of the group, the Afternoon Encounter is a perfect way to celebrate, get acquainted and even close a business deal. Your culinary conductor

will lead your tour of the evening's menu, helping you to understand and appreciate how superb meals come together. You will taste all of the courses along the way, while enjoying wines specially paired to compliment your meal. Before sitting down to enjoy the dinner you've watched expertly prepared, your group will also enjoy a special aperitivo.


The Encounter starts at 3:00 pm. Maximum group size: 15 people. Includes lessons, tastings, wine, aperitivo, dinner, and recipes. Transportation can be arranged. Upon request, the Afternoon Encounter can be held in an alternate location, including outside of Italy. Dates and prices for outside events should be discussed with Benedetta or with her U.S. representative.

To schedule a class or to attend an existing one, please contact Benedetta directly. Fees may be arranged with her U.S. representative.
