The Tuscookany - Cooking vacations at Casa Ombuto and Torre del Tartufo offer a unique opportunity to experience at first hand authentic regional cooking techniques and recipes that have been developed and handed down over generations. Our culinary schools have been rated by The Observer newspaper as one of the "Top 10 Cookery Schools in Europe". Tuscany cooking classes are held at Casa Ombuto and Torre del Tartufo, both recently restored large Tuscan villas set in a beautiful and tranquil location in Tuscany, Italy.
A week or three days in one of our Tuscany cooking classes 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. You will learn the passion of the Italian kitchen and, importantly, have a lot of fun and enjoyment doing it and later dine on your own creations complimented with fine Italian wines.
Our experienced Italian chefs offer complete hands on Tuscany cooking classes designed to teach you to make authentic 4 course Italian dinners covering all the basic Italian cooking techniques, from pasta to pastries and everything in between. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get to work, as we believe the only way to learn is to do it yourself.
Throughout your time at Casa Ombuto or Torre del Tartufo you will learn about the ingredients and the traditions around the dishes as well as food presentation and wine choice. We also offer a Mediterranean Cookery Course at our Tuscany cooking classes and this focuses is not only the Italian cuisine but also the French, Spanish and North African cuisine. This course offers a lot more variety and is more intensive than the Italian cooking classes.
We offer one week and three day Tuscany cooking classes, the one-week includes 4 elaborate hands-on cooking sessions and the 3 day includes 2 cooking lessons, both 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 a visit to a wonderful goat cheese farm run by a passionate cheese producer. It is also possible to bring along a non-participating partner to our Tuscany cooking classes who can spend the days sightseeing or relaxing at the villa while you are slaving over a hot stove and then rejoin the party for the evening meals! The groups are generally a mix of couples, singles, and friends traveling together. Everyone is there to enjoy the experience of cooking and eating together and meeting new people so never a problem for people traveling alone on a singles vacation.
