    5 star rating   I had the pleasure of recently enjoying a week at the Organic Tuscany Cooking School with my 2 adult children. Our week was nothing short of amazing! The dishes we learned to make will be ones we make time and time again. The side trips were spectacular. Organic Tuscany should be a must when going to Italy! By far the best trip we have ever been on!!!! We felt like the staff was family.

    5 star rating   I would never take another cooking class because nothing could compare with the week I had at the "old place". Your new villa looks lovely! The food, the people and the countryside was perfection! If you have the chance GO!

    5 star rating   Thank you Shilpa and everyone at Organic Tuscany for a wonderful week of cooking, eating, laughter and the ‘Tuscany Experience’. The cooking classes were so informative and such fun. The relaxed atmosphere, food and the people, made the week a holiday to remember. The new villa looks lovely and I would love to come back again. Anyone thinking of taking a trip to Tuscany to a cooking school, don’t miss this one. Best, Diana.
