Organic Tuscany Cooking School:
Located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Organic Tuscany Cooking School provides one-week, hands on cooking courses to participants from around the world. Our cooking classes are taught in English, but you will acquire a smattering of culinary Italian. Local chefs will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious dishes (from Tuscany and from other Italian regions) and reveal some of their culinary secrets.
We are in the Chianti area of Tuscany, Italy, conveniently placed between Florence and Siena. The school is located a magnificent 19th century Tuscan villa on a farm which has 340 acres of vineyards and olive groves. The cooking classes will take place on site, in a spacious ground floor kitchen. The villa is three miles outside the medieval town of Certaldo. Certaldo is a little off the usual tour routes, so its charming historic center is refreshingly free of tourists.
The19th century Tuscan villa where the school is located. The cooking classes will take place in a spacious ground floor kitchen, and the second floor. Accommodation is on the second floor.
In the villa there are several sitting rooms and dining rooms where you can relax.
The villa had a beautiful garden with a vista on the Tuscan hills.
The double bedrooms in the villa are spacious and have their own keys and private bathrooms.
Our cooking courses are very hands-on. They are taught in English, but you will acquire a smattering of culinary Italian. Local chefs will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious dishes (from Tuscany and from other Italian regions) and reveal some of their culinary secrets.
Groups are small (maximum 8 people), so that everyone gets a chance to try their hand at every technique, from making fresh egg pasta dough to lovingly stirring an artichoke risotto to perfection. Rather than cooking a "usual" meal of first course, second course and dessert we teach you several dishes on each day, so that you go home with quite an extensive repertoire!
