‘Tis the season for delicious food. And where better to enjoy it than in the heart of Tuscany with a stay at Hotel Savoy in Florence? Come and celebrate the season with us and learn how to create a delicious festive Italian meal that the whole family will love.

The land of pecorino and truffles, gelato and bistecca alla Fiorentina, Florence is the perfect city for a family-friendly foodie adventure. After all, Christmas celebrations in Italy centre around the family spending time together and preparing favourite recipes, from slow-cooked ragu and almond-studded cantuccini, to freshly-made ravioli.

For families looking to experience a traditional Italian Christmas, VIK’s exclusive Festive Cooking class is a fun, hands-on activity. Begin your delicious day in Florence with a trip to the Mercato Centrale. Home to artisans of all types and stripes, you’ll explore this foodie utopia with a chef and a friend from VIK and pick up all the seasonal ingredients you’ll need to get cooking.

Next, it’s time to put on your aprons. You’ll head off to the chic Da Pinocchio restaurant to learn how to make mouth-watering Italian cuisine as a family, having a go at tasks like rolling out dough for tortellini and learning about Italy through its food, from its culture to its table traditions.

After a busy morning in the kitchen, spent tasting, stirring and learning how to make authentic Italian dishes, you’ll sit down in the restaurant to enjoy the delicious dishes you crafted as a family. Buon appetito!

For a Christmas holiday your family will never forget, book our Family Suite Package at Hotel Savoy and receive a complimentary interconnecting or adjacent room. To book, call us on +39 06 32 888 930 or email reservations.savoy@roccofortehotels.com.
