Join Marco in the romantic Tuscan countryside for a week of unforgettable culinary experiences. For anyone who enjoys cooking, there is no better way to sharpen your techniques and expand your skills in Italian cooking, than in the setting of the 1000 year old Montecastelli working farm and olive orchard. You’ll visit the local markets, tour the vineyards and learn firsthand from two chefs that are at the forefront of “garden to table” cooking and first-rate hospitality. This week-long journey will immerse you in the joys of Italian culture, introduce you to new techniques and ingredients, and inspire your cooking for years to come.
The four-day cooking class will be complimented by wine tours and wine classes held by Jens Schmidt, owner of the Villa and renowned importer of Italian wines to the United States through his company Montecastelli Selections. Jens will introduce you to the basics of Italian and Tuscan varieties used in winemaking and tour with you a leading vineyard in Montalcino.
