Let our passionate team welcome you on a hands-on Italian cooking week in a beautiful villa.

We think that the best way to experience cooking is to slow right down. When you spend a week with us, that’s just what you’ll do. You’ll cook with the locals, using their family recipes and fresh local produce. We will take time to sit and chat talk over delicious food and wines. We’ll visit local producers who still work the traditional way. You’ll see unmissable sights in the area with our local guides but will love coming back home and relaxing in the gorgeous villa with its beautiful garden.

The cooking classes

For over ten years, we have enthusiastically shared our passion for Italian cuisine. We keep our groups small (10 people in the kitchen), so that everyone gets a chance to try their hand at several techniques, from making fresh egg pasta dough to turning out gorgeous little potato gnocchi. You’ll cook several dishes on each day and go home with many new tricks up your sleeve and several menus that will delight your friends and family!

A privileged setting

The cooking school is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes. As well as enjoying the stunning countryside, you’ll explore the medieval cities in the area (we are perfectly situated to easily visit several beautiful towns) and learn plenty about the region’s culinary traditions of top-quality foods and wines through meals and tastings.

The villa where you will stay

You will be staying in a charming, lovingly restored villa which is tucked between the rolling Tuscan hills. The view from the pool and garden is of the medieval town of San Gimignano, set amidst fields of olive groves and vines. The cooking classes will take place on site, in a spacious ground floor kitchen. We eat outside whenever we can (almost always!) and just like a big Italian family, we take our time to fully enjoy the food we have prepared together. Buon appetito!

Where we are

The villa is between two small but picture-perfect medieval towns which have not really made it onto the tourist trail. The villa has belonged to the same family for several generations and was the manor house of a farming estate. Our visitors agree that our corner is unrivalled as a place to relax, soak up Italian culture and learn to cook some authentically delicious dishes.

Our team

We are a team of friends and family members who enjoy working together and love welcoming people to our little corner. It’s a privilege to share the amazing places we know and to enjoy with our guests the great food that we prepare together and the wines from the vineyards that we visit.

You will love Organic Tuscany! I will never forget the fabulous week we had at Organic Tuscany. Shilpa and Ricardo were amazing hosts and everyone on their team, from the cooks to the tour guides, to the local artisans were approachable, knowledgeable and fun. It was a perfect mix of cooking and touring. I highly recommend the Organic Tuscany experience.

My week spent under Shilpa's care in the dreamy Tuscan farm house was absolutely memorable. The wonderful produce, and afternoon cooking sessions, the beautifully curated outings, the evening meals outdoors - everything was organised with such integrity and commitment to the local community. I would repeat it in a heartbeat!
