COOKING WITH CHEF ENZA
In the beginning there was . . . the cook, whose creativity sufficed to satisfy diners’ palates. But today, as diners’ expectations change and multiply, kitchen organization has had to change radically to keep pace. With five years at the Ristoro under her apron, Enza is today’s coordinator of the work of the kitchen brigade.
Enza, how did you get started in this sector?
“My passion for good things was transmitted to me by my parents: thirty years ago, when I was just a child, I began working at my father’s café: I loved meeting people and making them feel at home, listening to them, serving coffee and smiles.
Certainly, at the start my motivation was to make a living, but as I worked at various restaurants cooking became a calling.
The urge to learn more about different cuisines and cooking methods was irresistible and I tried my hand at many. Now I‘m at the Ristoro – and I intend to stay.”
What sets the cuisine at the Ristoro apart from that of other restaurants?
“Maybe there’s no need to say it, but here, we care deeply about what we do and our work is a source of pride for everyone who works here, so I believe it’s worth stressing: what sets the Ristoro apart is the quality of the ingredients.
The foundation of every item on our menu is meticulous selection of raw materials and continuing research into the excellences of our territory. And ongoing training. There’s no need to watch the cooking shows on today’s television to know that if you don’t evolve and change with the times, you cannot survive.
This means that the traditions and flavors of Tuscany are fundamental for us – but also that we reprise them with a touch of exclusivity and creativity that makes our dishes unique. “

WHAT DOES FRESH PASTA REMIND YOU OF?
For us, beyond the tastes and the smells, it reminds us of loved ones, of laughter and of happy hours spent with those we care about.
That is why we have organised this course with Chef Guenda for everyone who is passionate about this fundamental element of Italian cooking. Join us in the pasta "workshop" of Ristoro L’Antica Scuderia: you'll learn all the tricks for making the best fresh pasta, from selecting the ingredients, to working the dough to cooking and serving the final dish.
ROLLING PINS AT THE READY
Tagliolini, pici, ravioli. For each type of pasta, the rolling out stage is different. We'll teach you how to use the most traditional of kitchen tools, the rolling pin, to achieve the perfect thickness and consistency for different types of pasta.
NOT YOUR USUAL PIZZA!
Sifting, measuring, kneading, shaping: these gestures are repeated every time a pizza is prepared.
Plus you need the very best ingredients and the experience of our master pizza-chef, Giovanni, who will teach you to prepare the perfect pizza dough,
to knead it to attain the ideal smooth texture, to select toppings to transform a traditional Italian dish into a gourmet creation.
But pizza isn’t pizza unless it’s baked in a wood-fired oven.
And the temperature must be just right: 300 °C
