Full description
After enjoying a cup of espresso and getting to know each other, dinner preparations will begin. You'll get settled into the kitchen, get your aprons on and then get cooking! Your local cook Simonetta will teach you everything you need to know to make some delicious Tuscan cuisine and will assist you the whole time. From the beginning to the end, all steps in the process will be followed including cutting all the vegetables, preparing and cooking the meat, making fresh pasta starting with the flour and eggs and then preparing the noodles or ravioli. You'll also prepare the dessert. After all the dishes are prepared and cooking, you will be able to enjoy a rest by walking in the garden. From the garden you will enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view of the Valdichiana valley. The garden is beautiful, and full of a wide variety of roses that you'll be able to enjoy as you stroll around the gardens. When the weather is nice, dinner can be served on the terrace so you can admire the sunset over the Tuscan hills, accompanied by the chirping of birds. Of course, you will also be able to enjoy a good glass of wine from the wine list of over 85 local Tuscan wines.

We had such a wonderful time with Simonetta, her husband, dog and the great people we had the pleasure to cook with. The food was delicious, she had a very nice selection of wine to choose from and the views during dinner were stunning. We’d love to come back and visit her again!
