Make traditional Tuscan Ribollita, a joinable cooking lesson!

Duration: 60m

Complexity: Beginner


The famous and ancient recipe for Tuscan bread and vegetables soup.

Zoom in to your live cooking class and meet new friends. Interact and ask while you learn how to make the best traditional Tuscan Ribollita.

Stale bread and vegetables can make you shout ‘Mamma Mia!’, and if you don’t believe me, come join us in making this amazing Tuscan dish.

As most of our favourite traditional Italian dishes, ribollita was first created by poor families who cold not afford to cook something new each day. This beautiful soup, instead, lasted all week! The secret was just to make it ri-bollire (boil again), in the following days.

And ri-bollire your zuppa, will make it taste better and better each time, bringing out each vegetable’s unique taste.

It’s heart-warmingly rich of flavour, the different textures will make your mouth water, and it is also one of the healthiest dishes you can make. Do I really need to say much more? Buon appetito!

Michele Berlendis

Chef Michele Berlendis is the hands and heart of MaMa Florence, since he joined the team in 2016. A native-born Tuscan, he attended a technical school specializing in hospitality and during weekends, worked in a local restaurant where his passion for the kitchen was born. His most significant formative restaurant experience was working alongside chef Filippo Saporito, who he defines as his culinary guru, at La Leggenda dei Frati. After honing his skills, Michele moved to Berlin where he worked at the premier Italian restaurant Boccadibacco and helped run Caffe Pfoertner. Michele’s approach to cooking is dynamic and he loves experimenting with simple flavors so the taste of the genuine ingredients he uses can really come through. He reinterprets classic recipes to give them his personal touch. You can find him coordinating the order from the butcher, finding the freshest seasonal produce at the local vegetable market, or in his chef’s whites in front of the stovetop at MaMa sharing his knowledge with smiling participants.
