Cooking School

Would you like to learn how to cook pasta, Florentine sweets or fish as they should be cooked?  Thanks to the collaboration between Hotel River Florence and the Florentine cooking school, Giglio Cooking, a few meters from the hotel, you can participate in practical courses followed and guided by an authentic Italian chef.

Marcella Ansaldo, born and raised on the island of Giglio, is a longtime Florentine chef and professional in the sector of catering.  He is also a lover of nature and the freshest foods found on our territory.

The cooking school courses, all in a variety of languages, have been conceived to “dirty your hands” and attempt to really cook each recipe.  Our chef will advise you how to select food products, explain the cooking times, and give each plate the just right presentation on the table.
