European cooking travels visiting Italy

by Samuele Sodini

The Tuscan Chef offers a selection of cooking courses and wine experiences throughout the year.

*
Join the Tuscan Chef on a 6 day residential cooking course at a luxury 17th century Lucchese villa (groups of between 8-12) during the Spring and Autumn each year.
*
Hands-on cooking lessons with The Tuscan Chef at the Gazebo restaurant of the Napoleonic villa hotel Locanda L’Elisa.
*
For small, unique and individually designed courses of one day or a weekend, wine and dine with the Tuscan Chef “at home”; an olive press dating back to the 16th century.
*
Take the Tuscan Chef home with you to your rental villa where he can prepare lunch and/or dinner as well as offer hands-on cooking lessons
*
Tour with the Tuscan Chef on a sensory journey exploring hidden towns and villages, Chianti and Bolgheri vineyards, markets and specialist food suppliers.

Courses are hands-on under the guidance of professional Italian chef, Valter Roman, and also feature guest chefs from around the world including Alvaro Maccioni of La Famiglia restaurant in London. Alvaro is a passionate advocate of using fresh, seasonal produce and traditional methods of cooking. He believes that ‘if a chef cooks like his mother, he is a great chef. If he cooks like his grandmother, he is even greater!’ Valter believes cooking is not just a matter of weights and measures and following a recipe but of feeling and instinct and hands-on experience.
