Travel Tip: Organic Cooking Class in Tuscany

by UNIGLOBE Donaldson Travel - Tuscany, Italy -

It's hard to pinpoint a top destination in Italy. Rome, for the history? Venice, for the romance? The Amalfi Coast for sheer beauty?

One of our favorite places to visit is Tuscany. This incredible region is known for its gorgeous landscapes, its rich artistic legacy and its influence on high culuture. Regarded as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Tuscany has been home to many influential people in the history of arts and science, now evidenced by the many museums you can visit. Six Tuscan localities are designated World Heritage Sites, and there are 120 protected nature reserves. 

Most especially, Tuscany is known for its unique culinary tradition and famous wines. Earthy flavors and sophisticated dishes make this a foodie heaven.

Now, we're all about eating while on vacation. But why not take it a step further?

There are many, many cooking classes available in the region. One of our favorites is Organic Tuscany. Much more than a cooking school, a week of these hands-on cooking classes in the middle of the Tuscan countryside is not an experience easily forgotten. 

From the website:

"The accommodation will be on a gorgeous, lovingly restored farm which has 6 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. Some of the rooms we will occupy will be frescoed rooms in the elegant manor house, others in a charming cottage next to the ancient oil press. The cooking classes will take place on site, in a spacious, sunny ground floor kitchen in what used to be the wine-making cellar.

The farm has been recently and lovingly restored. Five full years of sustainable conservation work recovered unique architectural features and discovered and restored frescoes. Electricity and heat are generated using renewable sources."

Sourced from fresh, local ingredients, you get to cook with an intimate group of passionate chefs some of the region's favorite dishes. The week-long experience also includes wine-paired lunches, dinners, walking tours, picnics, basket of souvenirs, recipes and more.  

With raving reviews on Trip Advisor, Organic Tuscany sounds like the perfect getaway.
