“Desinare”: food, art, and love

There is an interesting range of theories about the origin of the Italian word ‘desinare’, which is both a noun, meaning “meal”, and a verb, meaning “to eat”. Now “Desinare” is also the name of a place in Florence where food is explored in all of its many aspects, offering always-new interpretations of the delicious subject of fine cuisine.

The French philosopher François de La Rochefoucauld is noted for saying, “To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art” – and “Desinare” is where you’ll see his aphorism come to life.

How? First and foremost, through the communication of a true passion for great food.

The courses organized by “Desinare” at the event space inside the Riccardo Barthel showroom are an open testimony of love for every detail that comes into a wonderful meal – from cooking to tasting wine, and from food photography to table design. There are morning and evening, individual and group classes.

After all, this is Florence: everything here is love, art… and food!
