Scuola di cucina Lorenzo De' Medici

With the Cucina Lorenzo de’ Medici, the new cooking school at the Central Market in Florence, LdM has decided to offer a new experience to all those who love food and its preparation. Through Cucina Lorenzo de’ Medici food lovers will have the rare opportunity to participate in cooking courses held the unique backdrop of the Central Market – the beating heart of the San Lorenzo area – and in direct contact with the market’s food producers and vendors, the so-called “Artisans of Taste.”

The market producers and the ingredients they sell are the central figures of the courses offered at CUCINA Lorenzo de’ Medici: participants will become part of the hustle and bustle of market life at the Central Market, discovering food quality standards and how to understand the healthiest, most authentic and highest quality products. In addition to the practical aspect of cooking and food preparation, during the courses teacher-chefs will transmit their passion for food, the absolute importance of top-quality ingredients and their nutritional values and how the recipes prepared ultimately influence both physical and mental wellbeing.

Entering the Cucina Lorenzo de ‘ Medici is not just about learning how to “create” a recipe, but mostly about acquiring the “knowledge” of that recipe and learning more about the Mediterranean culture to which Italian cuisine belongs, and the wealth of culinary knowledge and preparation styles that have been handed down from generation to generation.
