CUCINA CON VISTA COOKING SCHOOL WAS CREATED FROM THE CULINARY EXPERIENCE OF ELENA MATTEI: CHEF SINCE 1987 AND MANAGER OF HER OWN FLORENTINE TRATTORIA 'LA BARAONDA'.

After launching her very successful and popular restaurant, many of Elena’s customers wanted more than to just taste the delicious dishes offered every night, they also wanted to experience the ancient art of Tuscan cuisine in their own homes.

And just like that Cucina con Vista was born: inspired initially by the demands of La Baraonda’s customers and grown today to accommodate the passion and curiosity of food lovers around the world.

Elena’s mission is not only to teach traditional Tuscan cuisine but also to give to those who participate in her courses the opportunity to feel Tuscan. To this end, she combines cooking lessons with other activities related to typical Tuscan life and culture.

Cucina con Vista is run by chef Elena Mattei and her son Chef Lapo Magni.
