What you'll do

We will prepare together the Tiramisu and the famous "Cantucci" biscotti of Prato. For the Tiramisu, in addition to the traditional recipe, I will teach you to prepare the typically Prato version, which uses a particular wetting based on Alchermes, a typical Tuscan liqueur much loved by the Medici family of Florence. The biscuits of Prato, the pride of the Tuscan cuisine, are dry almond biscuits obtained by cutting the loaf, after baking in the oven, into slices. Every Prato family has their own recipe, I will teach you our own. I will guide you in the preparation of the dough, the loaf and the typical hot cut, not least the tasting of the biscuits soaked in Vin Santo, a sweet Tuscan wine produced from grapes left to dry after harvesting. At the end of the experience you will have prepared your Tiramisu and your Biscuits, which you will bring home well packed: Tiramisu 500g / 1.1lb Biscuits 300g / 0.66lb

Learn more about Sara

Sara

My name is Sara, I was born and grew up in Tuscany in the city of Prato, the city of “Castello del Imperatore”, a few kilometers from Florence. I inherited my passion for cooking from my grandparents, restaurant owners in Firenze, with whom I lived together with my parents until teens. The excellent knowledge of the Tuscan culinary traditions and the passion for cooking of my grandparents and my mother then, allowed me to become a good cook. I have been a wife for 20 years and mothers for 10, this new part of my life has allowed me to put my skills to good use, with particular attention to cakes.

Where you'll be

We will cook at my house, a typical and cozy city apartment. Together we will taste the desserts prepared in a typically Italian moment "la merenda". I live in an area well served by public transport, taxis, and car sharing services, just a few kilometers from the train stations of Prato and Florence and from the Florence airport.
