As a SPECIAL SERVICE to our guests staying at one of our Tuscan Villas, we have been encouraging our villa owners to hire someone who comes in the villa and give a cookery course specially to your group. The chef will come into the Villa and stay with you for the whole day showing and teaching you the secrets of some tasty Italian dishes. In many cases, the chef is the owner her/himself fo the villa, as long as almost anyone who was born and grown up in Tuscany is naturally an excellent cook!!!
>>Our greatest example of that is certainly Elisabetta, owner of Casale Pippo.
Other examples of HIGH CLASS COOKING SCOOLS are PODERE POMAIA:
The classes take place in the large kitchen at the top floor of this amazing winery. The prices might slightly change according to the subject of the lessons, usually for 3 main courses it varies from 60.- to 80.- EUR por person depending on the number of students (6 to 12).
and also the amazing Borgo in central Chianti Area with several types of accomodations:
The "Borgo" offers full and intensive cooking classes. Enjoy a day of trying your hand at making pasta, fresh tomato sauce, and many other traditional and special Tuscan recipes.
An ideal location for cooking classes (in English - Spanish - Italian) is also VILLA NOBILE in Arezzo.
The owners organize not only cooking classes, but also
· Catering for Events and Wedding Ceremonies
· Breakfast / Dinners (also vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dinners) prepared in the villa
· Wine Tastings (in English - Spanish - Italian)
· Wine- and Food - Tours (in English - Spanish - Italian)
So why don’t you spice up your holiday in Tuscany with a firsthand authentic Italian one or two-day cookery course? Ever dreamed of making your own pasta, or creating a splendid full-course Italian dinner and remember these irresistible desserts?
In most of our villas you can book a cooking class directly with the villa owners.
