Program is sold out for 2017.
Our program combines an itinerary of cooking classes and field trips to local artisanal producers, small organic farms, visits to Tuscan villages and dining at excellent intimate restaurants. There will be plenty of relaxation on the grounds of your home site at Castello di Spannocchia, an organic agricultural estate nestled in the hills of Tuscany. You will indulge your senses with the tastes of Tuscany by sampling locally produced cheeses, salumi, wines, and more. Learn how to prepare regional recipes with tips and techniques from a local cook. Learn about gardening methods that preserve the ancient landscape and provide the kitchen with a fresh, flavorful harvest. Find out about traditional cured pork products and the importance of raising organic, free-range breeds. By the time you depart Spannocchia you will be well versed in Tuscan flora and fauna, wine, food, and the delicacies that all play a part in the magic of Italy.
