Unique Experience in the Heart of Tuscany: Colle Val D'Elsa

3 reviews
Did you already visit the most famous destinations? Would you like to have a unique, fun and unforgettable experience in Tuscany?<br><br>I recommend you a day in Colle Val D'Elsa, a medieval village outside the tourist routes, but that has so much to say and show you... It is the birthplace of Arnolfo di Cambio, the Architect of Palazzo Vecchio and the Cathedral of Florence. Here Carlo Lorenzini, better known as Carlo Collodi, entered the seminary and he get the inspiration to write the famous novel of Pinocchio. It is also the most important town of Italy in the production of crystal. So why do not stop and enjoy a nice day between his shops, palaces, stories and markets?

I enjoyed 5 days of personal cooking lessons in my rental home in San Casciano September and October 2013 under the guidance of Anita White. What a fabulous experience! Each day, we shopped in local markets so that I could learn the Italian words for ingredients then together we prepared a 4 course menu. Of course, we ate as we completed various courses enjoying wine pairings that also introduced me to the local terroir. The classes were such a success that my husband and I arranged for Anita and "Joshi" (her Michelin star chef and husband) to prepare 3 different outstanding dinners for us and a guest. What incredible evenings! I highly recommend Anita and Joshi for cooking lessons or for special meal preparations. We hope to continue our friendship as holidays in Italy are a regular experience for us.

I along with 9 members of my family had a cooking lesson with Anita and Giuseppe in July 2013 and was very glad we took part. They cooked at the villa we were staying at and the whole day was a wonderful experience. We all got chance to contribute to the lunch that day and learned some very useful tips for using fresh ingredient's. The experience was very enjoyable and even the kids had a good time.

We were 20 adults and 4 children and took a wonderful villa (Villa Barberina) for a week in June. Anita came every day to make us lunch and dinner (and a wedding lunch) and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Lovely lady who made us an never ending variety of delicious dishes and was happy to chat and share her secrets. Without doubt, Anita was a big part of a most successful stay. It was a pleasure both seeing her prepare the dishes and eating them. If you are in this part of the world, make time for a cookery course with her, or better still, a week or two of her cooking. Only major drawback is that we couldn't take her home with us!
