Fabrizio Merli

Chef Fabrizio grew up in a family with strong Italian culinary traditions, foundations of the traditional Tuscan cuisine, and the Mediterranean diet. After a long experience in the UK as a chef, then he moved to various countries and worked with important chefs, who have taught him new techniques and exotic touches. While favoring the traditional cuisine, using methods of the past and highest quality ingredients, Fabrizio can delight with aromas giving them a contemporary twist.

"Great Tuscan Cooking Experience "

If you're looking to experience a cooking school in the Tuscany countryside, then MangiarDivino is the one for you. The course was well worth the money as it included three meals daily, cooking lessons each day as well as side trips.

Chef Fabrizio was an excellent instructor and graciously went out of his way to accommodate our requests for what we wanted to learn to cook and what foods we didn't eat.

We were taught true Tuscan cooking and how to use herbs and secrets to preparing fabulous meals. He also gave us pointers for coordinating food preparation to have everything finished on time.

We all marveled at how professional our meals looked.

I had the opportunity to spend four days in a villa in Arezzo, about ½ hour from Florence, to enjoy daily Tuscany cooking classes. I am used to cooking lessons for several years since I am fond of gastronomy but that one is really the best I have ever tested. Everything was perfect: the place (a quiet villa with a swimming-pool in a wonderful Tuscany landscape), the food (Italian food is so tasty! I ate truffles for the first time and it was just marvelous), the lessons (I learnt to prepare fresh pasta. It was really easy and I succeeded to make it again back home, with no pasta machine, only a rolling pin. Thanks to the chef for sharing his cooking secrets.), and above all the chef, Fabrizzio who is very professional and so kind. We had the impression to cook with a friend and had good times sharing a glass (or more !) of wine after the lessons. Thanks to Fabrizzio for these beautiful holidays, in the villa’s kitchen and also in tours (visit of a winery and the Arezzo old city with the chef). I will never forget these holidays and really hope to have other stays in Tuscany and cooking lessons with Fabrizzio.
