Cooking Under the Tuscan Sun Getaway 2017-08-06T16:19:14+00:00

Explore Your Cooking Under the Tuscan Sun Getaway!

Our Cooking adventure begins at 10 am today!  We will learn how to make pappardelle pasta and a typical and delicious local sauce, pappardelle al cinghiale.  We will also learn to make Italian desserts.  Later, we meet in the Villa’s wine cellar for a private wine tasting and tour with some light snacks to accompany the delicious Tuscan wine which will set the tone for our amazing Getaway Experience!

Around 6 pm tonight, join us for our welcome cocktail (aperitivo) surrounded by the beautiful hills of Tuscany as we socialize with our fellow guests and toast to travel followed by our exclusive welcome dinner.  After dinner, we’ve having a party!  We’ve invited a famous local musician to perform so we can welcome you in style!  Shall we dance?

We are spending the day in Siena!  Siena has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site and it’s a must see.  We travel to Siena where we will be guided by a local on a walking tour of Siena visiting its most important sites and learning about its rich history and culture.

Later tonight and back at our host Villa, we’ve invited a local personality to spin pizza and entertain us while we learn how to make authentic Italian pizza.   As we work, we are entertained by our local pizza chef with all sorts of “pizza entertainment.”  No pizza dinner is complete without some homemade gelato—Simone will be busy preparing our dessert!

After breakfast, there’s a yoga session for those who need stretching before we head to the kitchen to cook.  Today, we will learn how to make local favorites, bruschetta for starters and then, fresh handmade ravioli with bolognese sauce which we’ll enjoy for lunch.

Later this evening, we will be transported back in time as we venture out to a beautiful Tuscan winery for a tour of the historic ground and then enjoy another wine tasting.  Tonight, our last night together, we meet for our farewell dinner prepared specially for us.

After breakfast this morning, don’t forget to take your final photos of beautiful Tuscany, our host Villa and all the new friends you’ve made.  Take a last stroll in the gardens, visit the olive trees, smell the fresh Tuscan air, smiling into the sun for it’s not farewell but until next time….

Just remember, you may leave Tuscany but Tuscany will never leave you.  Once you’ve experienced Tuscany, you will never forget La Dolce Vita.  Besides, after having lived like a local for the week, you are now part of the family.
