Learn to cook on one of our authentic Italian cooking courses at beautiful Casa Ombuto, an old recently restored large Tuscan villa set in a stunning and tranquil location in the hills of the Casentino valley some 50km south of Florence.
You will learn to cook Italian food with Paola Baccetti, a locally born chef who ran her own successful restuarant in nearby Bibbiena for 10 years.
Paola will help you learn to cook splendid Italian 4 course dinners, and will teach you all the basic Italian cooking techniques, from pasta to pastries and everything in between. The cooking lessons are given in the "Cantina" of Casa Ombuto. All of the ingredients you will use are bought each morning from local markets and so you will learn to cook with fresh fruit and vegetables in season.
Throughout your time at culinary school you will learn about the ingredients and the traditions around the dishes as well as food presentation and wine choice. We also make it possible to learn to cook light and healthy cuisine with our new Mediterranean Cookery Course that focuses on preparing tasty low calorie meals.
Our learn to cook courses are 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 who can spend the days sightseeing or playing golf while you learn to cook, and then rejoin the party for the evening meals.
If you would like to learn to cook authentic Italian cuisine in a beautiful and tranquil setting then our cookery courses are an ideal choice for you. Click here for more information on how to learn to cook at beautiful Casa Ombuto.
