Several years ago I attended an Italian cooking class at the Villa Pandolfini in Lastra a Signa, a small town right outside of Florence. Nestled among olive groves and vineyards sits Villa Pandolfini, a graceful Renaissance villa, which houses the Good Tastes of Tuscany cooking school with expert chefs. The cooking classes are hands-on with a focus on seasonal ingredients. Excursions into Florence, the surrounding amazing Tuscan countryside and wine tastings at fantastic vineyards can all be arranged. The following photos were taken during on excursions to Florence and Pienza - I don't believe they need much explanation!
