Simonetta & Paola

Nestled in the Tuscan countryside, in the bucolic Chianti region, two Italian sisters have for more than 25 years been producing extra virgin olive oil and a wealth of organic produce. From their charming home, Simonetta and Paola continue to offer food loving guests a taste of honest Tuscan home cooking, and of course you're encouraged to join in!

The cooking classes are held in a friendly atmosphere and you have the chance to meet new people and make new friends and learn a few culinary secrets from Simonetta and Paola. Participants cook and eat dishes prepared using fresh, organic and natural ingredients.

Families with children are very welcome and the kids will love kneading the dough and to prepare fresh pasta with eggs, gnocchi and biscotti, pizza, focaccia. On request, an English-speaking foodie teacher will take you to discover an Italian food market. Discover with her Italian cheeses, salami, prosciutto, vegetables, fruit. Then we drive back to our villa for the cooking class.
