Taking a course at Scuola di Cucina Lorenzo de’ Medici is a unique experience both for the professionalism of the didactic offering and the prestigious venue in which courses take place: in the Central Market in Florence, putting course participants in direct contact with the market’s top-quality culinary ingredients and food producers, true “artisans of taste” and an endless source of culinary inspiration.


All courses at Scuola di Cucina are taught by professional chefs in state-of-the-art, air conditioned kitchens designed by Arclinea.
Eight workstations (for two people each) are equipped with innovative appliances by Franke, including magnetic induction cooktops, a complete roster of kitchen utensils and appliances.


Each course begins with a focus to quality products, learning the production and their nutritional aspects. Culinary culture and the high professionalism of our chefs ensure a complete learning experience behind the burner.


Participants can follow every step of the preparation of a recipe, from the food design on the plate to the final tasting, which takes place at the chef’s table in a relaxed atmosphere with other participants of the course, with each person discussing and commenting on the final results.
