Wanting to do cooking course in Tuscany

I'm wanting to do a cooking course in Italy Tuscany. I would like to learn to cook everything from the basics right up to preparing gourmet meals. It doesn't have to be a fancy cooking school, I just wish to learn. I would like to be there for a week or so, and I don't believe I would need to stay in a very fancy place. Could you suggest a cooking/chef school which I could join. Also If anyone had been to any of these schools I would greatly appreciate any comments that you have about them

Thanks :)

          1. Sounds like cooking a full menu of every day Tuscan dishes every morning with a good home cook is what would suit you. I recommend Podere Le Rose at where you'll stay in their farmhouse in a lovely Chianti hill spot and cook an deat with very nice local people. I went there years ago and know many happy people who've been there since.
