Cooking schools in Tuscany

Jan S. Jul 8, 1999 03:30 PM

I'm interested in taking a week-long cooking course in Tuscany the end of August/beginning of September. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Go to


    for a list of options...it's the page
    of a woman who writes a guide to
    Italian cooking schools...another
    site is


    which is the site of La Cucina Al
    Focolare, a cooking school outside
    of Florence.

    I have some info about villa
    rentals on my site,


    There are lots of Italian web sites,
    so a search for "Tuscan cooking
    classes" will probably find you a
    lot more possibilities.

    PS if you go in late October, you'll
    catch the start of the olive harvest
    and can bring home some peppery
    Tuscan oil.
