What you'll do

We will cook the traditional dishes of Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio together. Vegetarians or vegans can be accommodated. Our courses will be rich in flavor and taste and are very genuine, mostly using produce and herbs harvested from the garden. Lessons will be based on authentic cuisine taught to us by our moms and grandmothers. The recipes will be seasonal, because this area offers excellent culinary products. To start, I'll present the raw ingredients that we will use. Then I'll show you different techniques for hand-making noodles, pies, dumplings, stuffed pasta, and pizza. You'll learn techniques for sauces, roasting, and different types of cooking. Then we'll all sit together at a table and celebrate our preparations with a wonderful five-course dinner immersed in nature.

Your hosts

I graduated as a chef at Artusi and interned at restaurants in Rome, where important chefs taught me techniques and the passion for authentic tastes. My passion and my profession for cooking pushed me to move to Tuscany, one of the realms of excellence in Italian cuisine. After years of dining I decided to begin teaching cooking classes to all the techniques I learned.

Where you'll be

We will be at il Gran Villino, in the San Casciano dei Bagni province of Siena. It is in the Val d'Orcia UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Villa Vetrichina complex, surrounded by nature and the woods next to Mount Amiata, between Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio. The place is lovely and magical, where you can find a moment of pleasure.
