Cooking Class: Indulge in Tuscan Cooking

Enjoy the nutty, delicate, and rich flavors of Tuscan food all while learning to cook it in this hands-on cooking class hosted by Chef Marc. Chef Marc will take you on a journey to the Tuscan countryside where you will learn all about its culture through a carefully curated menu that begins with a creamy mushroom risotto.
