Join us on a week-long organic
cooking class in Tuscany
We'll visit local organic farms, learn to cook flavoursome, healthy food using the freshest local seasonal ingredients, and savour the results together, washed down with delicious biodynamic wine. Buon appetito!
At Organic Tuscany we take you to see the farms where we buy many of our ingredients.
You eat at one of the farm restaurants. At another, you can buy wonderful artisanal cheeses, pasta and olive oil to take home.
In our hands-on cooking classes, we transform
this fresh, local produce into traditional Tuscan and Italian
: fresh pastas
hearty salads, the perfect risotto
delectable Italian desserts
Some of the cooking
courses are fully vegetarian
and all the others can easily be made vegetarian
A cooking school and much more
The cooking school is located between Florence and Siena: one of the most beautiful landscapes in Italy.
As well as seeing stunning countryside, we explore the medieval cities in the area, and investigate the regional culinary traditions of great food and wine through meals and tastings.
On your free evenings, you can choose whether to investigate the great
local trattorie, or stay at home on the farm and relax with a good
Chianti, fabulous local tomatoes and delicious local organic cheeses.
Cooking courses which
explore local traditions
You will stay in a charming, lovingly restored farmhouse villa which is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The view from the pool and garden is of the towers of San Gimignano, twenty minutes away.
The cooking classes
will take place on site, in a spacious, sunny ground floor kitchen.
The villa is between Certaldo and Barberino Val d'Elsa, two stunning medieval towns which have not really made it onto the tourist trail.
It used to belong to a noble family and housed the farmers who worked the neighbouring fields.
Our visitors agree that our corner of Tuscany is unrivalled as a place to relax, soak up Italian culture and learn
to cook some authentically delicious dishes.
