Cooking schools in Italy are the perfect way of learning to cook great food while at the same time discovering and enjoying the regional culture and cuisine. We run a Italian cooking schools from the "Cantina" of the beautiful Casa Ombuto, a recently restored large Tuscan villa set in a wonderfully tranquil location in the hills of the Casentino valley some 50km south of Florence. Our cooking school in Italy has recently been rated by The Observer newspaper as one of the ´Top ten cookery schools in Europe´
A week at one of our cooking schools in the luxurious Casa Ombuto will allow you to immerse yourself in the culture and lifestyle of Tuscany and learn to cook real Italian dishes in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Our cooking schools in Italy are taught by Paola Baccetti, a locally born chef who ran her own successful restuarant in nearby Bibbiena for 10 years.
Paola believe's that cooking schools should offer a real hands-on learning experience, and their comprehensive course is designed to teach you to make splendid 4 course Italian dinners covering all the basic Italian cooking techniques, from pasta to pastries and everything in between.
The ingredients you will use are bought each morning from local markets and so you will be working with fresh fruit and vegetables in season. Throughout your time at our cooking schools in Italy you will learn about the ingredients and the traditions around the dishes as well as food presentation and wine choice. You might also be interested in a Mediterranean Cookery Course that we teach at our cooking schools in Italy. This course focuses on cooking light dishes from around the Mediterranean with an emphasis on great taste and low calories.
The cooking school courses run from Saturday to Saturday and include 4 elaborate hands-on cooking sessions with enough time to relax and enjoy the surroundings. A one-day excursion will be organized to visit a vineyard for wine tasting, as well as to a local producer of olive oil and time for shopping. It is also possible to bring along a non-participating partner to our cooking schools, and they can spend their days sightseeing, playing golf, or enjoying the heated pool before rejoining the party for the evening meals.
