Tuscan Cooking Courses

Discover the secrets of Tuscan cooking

Set in the rolling hills of Volterra, among the breathtaking views of untouched nature, our cooking classes teach you to prepare traditional Tuscan dishes. Be surprised by the skill of our chefs who will share their secrets with you to understand the recipes of Tuscan cuisine with products from our farm.

Our courses are designed for everyone, beginners and more experienced, with a space also dedicated to the little ones. In your station you will find all the tools and ingredients to complete the dish, with an apron signed by Diacceroni, which you can keep as a souvenir of this wonderful experience. Test yourself in our kitchens and don’t miss the opportunity to learn how to cook fresh pasta, lasagna, Tuscan soup, pizza and meat sauce.

Savoring the work of your own hands will be well worth it!

Thanks to our network of collaborators in the territory, we can offer you a transport service to reach our structure comfortably from your hotel/villa, from the major art cities of Tuscany and from the ports of Livorno and La Spezia.

Elia is an excellent guide whose passion and knowledge made this tour an unforgettable experience. Together with his sweet dog Noura, they were the perfect team. We liked that it felt very personal and engaging, with opportunities to help out if you wanted. Afterwards, we had the tasting option we had booked: Prosecco & a nice platter of light bites with truffles. Lovely setting to relax with sweeping views of the countryside. The full lunch looked wonderful. Thank you for a special day!Brad S.Brad S. ★★★★★ The truffle hunt was so much fun for kids and adults. The guide was/is so passionate and he really made the experience. He’s been hunting truffles with dogs for literally 30 years and his love for the hunt shined thru. Thank you so much.Justyna L.Justyna L. ★★★★★ Moritz CMoritz C ★★★★★ Wir haben einen Pasta-Kurs gebucht. Der Kurs war großartig! Die Lage ist unglaublich schön und das Erlebnis jeden Cent wert. Wir haben eine Menge nützlicher Hintergrundinformationen bekommen. Die Anleitungen und Erklärungen waren super. Das non plus ultra war natürlich, die selbstgemachte Pasta im Anschluss noch verspeisen zu können.Auf jeden Fall eine klare Empfehlung!francescaperhat F.francescaperhat F. ★★★★★ Bellissima esperienza che ti introduce in un mondo del quale non conoscevo neanche l'esistenza. La caccia al tartufo si basa come spiegato in maniera molto dettagliata da Elia, la conoscenza del territorio, dell'animale che ti accompagna e fa coppia con te ed infine nel prodotto finale che ricerchiamo "il tartufo"!!Elia spiega con passione ogni singolo passaggio e non può lasciarti indifferente. Esperienza assolutamente da non perdere.Francesca e JonathanRyan L.Ryan L. ★★★★★ Wow wow wow! What an experience! Lucia was absolutely incredible teaching us about how pasta is made and about all of the ingredients! This is a must do and way more affordable than other options!Becky M.Becky M. ★★★★★ Fantastic gnocchi experience lead by the lovely Lucia. She was super friendly, patient and encouraging throughout the session making us feel very relaxed. She was very informative and gave us a great insight into the local Tuscan produce. I thoroughly recommend for a morning and lunch activity. Thank you Lucia!Martina B.Martina B. ★★★★★ Great truffle-hunting experience! We joined with our dog who even got a chance to participate too (although he didn’t quite understand what to look for lol). The truffle hunter was extremely knowledgeable, and we learned so much not only about truffles but also the relationship between the hunter/owner and the dog. The only downside was that there were a lot of kids in our group, they did all the digging and following up on the dog’s leads which would have been nice to experience too.Angela P.Angela P. ★★★★★ Gerald bravissimo.Off road top, da fare !Jallil K.Jallil K. ★★★★★ Offroad fantastico,grande Gerald!Sara G.Sara G. ★★★★★ Abbiamo partecipato alla caccia al tartufo con una bambina di 7 anni.

Our kids also loved the experience. Highly recommendAmanda V.Amanda V. ★★★★★ Een prachtige rit gemaakt bij Diacceroni Experiences! Erg goed ontvangen door de attente medewerkers, het is een prachtige locatie en de paarden zien er op en top uit. Ik heb mogen genieten van een staprit met zonsondergang en kan zeggen dat met 18 jaar paardenervaring dit een van de mooiste ritten was. Aanrader!SimonSimon ★★★★★ Unique experience. The guide has a wealth of knowledge, the dogs were super nice and skilled. Topped with a small delicious meal at the end. My wife and I will enjoy truffles in a new way in light of this adventure.Ulrike H.Ulrike H. ★★★★★ Nach einer herzlichen Begrüßung sind wir mit dem Guide und 2 Hunden in den Wald auf Trüffelsuche gegangen, es war toll! Viele interessante Informationen über Trüffel und die Hunde wurden uns voller Leidenschaft übermittelt. Besonders das gemeinsame Graben mit dem Hund nach Trüffeln war ein emotionales Erlebnis.

Eine absolute Empfehlung!Ali Ç.Ali Ç. ★★★★★ First black truffle hunted 👍antoine T.antoine T. ★★★★★ Amazing place.
