A week at our Italian cooking school in Tuscany will inspire you with the passion of the Italian kitchen. Rated by The Observer newspaper as one of the "Top 10 Cookery Schools in Europe" our Italy cooking schools are located in the "Cantina" of beautiful Casa Ombuto, a large recently restored large Tuscan villa set in a stunning and tranquil location in the hills of the Casentino valley some 50km south of Florence, Italy.
Our Italian cooking school at the luxurious Casa Ombuto is designed to immerse you in the culture and lifestyle of Tuscany and teach you to cook authentic Italian dishes in an informal and friendly environment.
Your host at the Italian cooking school is Paola Baccetti, a locally born chef who ran her own successful restuarant in nearby Bibbiena for 10 years.
Paola's Italy cooking schools offers a comprehensive hands on course 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.
All of the ingredients you will use at our Italy cooking schools 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 Italian cooking school you will learn about the ingredients and the traditions around the dishes as well as food presentation and wine choice. For those of you interested in learning to cook light and healthy cuisine we know run a Mediterranean Cookery Course at our Italy cooking schools that focuses on great taste and low calories.
Our Italy cooking schools week run from Saturday to Saturday and includes 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 Italian cooking school, and they can spend the days sightseeing, or playing golf before re-rejoining the party for the evening meals.
