Cooking Classes in Tuscany at the Villa Olmi, Florence

November 24, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Villa OlmiAs the temperatures dip and the days get shorter, it's easy to dream about sunny summer days in Tuscany. Think ahead to summer 2010 and book a stay at Villa Olmi, the renowned Renaissance villa nestled on six hectares of perfectly manicured gardens just 15 minutes from downtown Florence. Experience the good life on a centuries-old estate with its verdant park, swimming pool, fully-stocked wine cellar, and gastronomic delights. In fact, the five-star hotel offers cooking classes so that guests can learn the art of traditional Italian cuisine prepared at the gourmet restaurant, Il Cavaliere. A journey through Tuscany, the cooking classes highlight local ingredients and wines in a lively format. You'll learn three dishes (a first course, main, and dessert) and feast on them for lunch after preparing them yourself. At the completion of the class, you'll get a personalized diploma, recipe, and Villa Olmi apron to take home with you.
