Cooking Classes

Fat Tuscan Gainesville Florida White Paint Stroke.
Our Cooking Classes at the Fat Tuscan focus on building students’ confidence in the kitchen while encouraging each person’s passion and creativity. We start this process with our setting inside The Fat Tuscan Cafe, a warm, fully restored, historic 100-year-old home located in the heart of downtown Gainesville’s Historic District at 725 NE 1st Street, Gainesville, Florida 32601. The warm ambiance of our surroundings instantly creates a relaxed atmosphere where people can laugh, cook, and come together.
Each cooking class we offer has a theme and subject matter taught in person by our chefs. We offer both “Hands-On” classes and “Observation” type classes here at the Fat Tuscan. All classes will include the use of any equipment needed to produce the subject recipes, all supplies, ingredients, groceries, take-home containers, utensils, and personal instruction unless otherwise stated in the Class Description. Additionally, printed detailed instructions to take home and any other materials needed to accomplish the recipes are provided.
We offer a variety of day, evening, weekday, and weekend classes. Check our calendar for dates and subjects. We offer single-subject class workshops and Subject Series Classes that center on a theme, with each subsequent class in the series building on the next with different recipes taught at each class. Some classes are repeated throughout the year and can include either repeated or different recipes, so attending the same subject class may mean you will go over new material and learn something different each time.
Classes are limited to no more than 12 students, with individual workstations set up for each student. Some classes may include a meal prepared in front of you by the instructor or samples and tastings of prepared recipes during the class. For the more ‘hands-on’ classes, such as pasta making and baking, students may be eating their end projects or taking them home to bake; see course descriptions for details. Due to the small size of classes, availability is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please read our Cancellation Policy & Liability Release before purchasing and attending the class.
