Help! Affordable cooking class/workshop in Florence or Venice?

Hi! My husband and I would absolutely love to take a cooking class/workshop while in Italy in late November, but I can't find any affordable options. Any suggestions in Florence or Venice? It's my first trip to Italy and thought it would be incredible to experience the food and preparation first hand but since that can get really pricey we're just looking for something brief... anything from a one hour olive oil tasting to a half-day session. Ditto if you know of any reasonable wine tastings. Maybe what I'm looking for doesn't exist?! I hoping you can help! Thanks so much in advance for your replies and insight.

Anyone interested in Flavor Palm Beach

Forte's excellent. There's nothing like it in PBC... 100 percent worth checking out for Flavor Palm Beach! The Post recently wrote an article about the must-try items (which Forte was included), if you're interested in reading. Cabana and Solu are also great choices, and I'm excited to try III Forks.... already made a rez.

West Palm Beach choices

A few great options in Downtown WPB... Forte di Asprinio (recently opened, modern Italian; owned by Stephen Asprinio from Bravo's Top Chef), Leila (fantastic middle eastern food; very warm atmosphere) and slightly further south Cafe Sapori is great for fresh, homemade Italian.
