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.

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!

Shilpa, Riccardo and all... read more

What an absolutely wonderful week! Organic Tuscany's cooking week was a perfect balance of cooking classes and local experiences! Funny how sometimes the most innocuous things can change your life: how did I ever cook without a mezzaluna?! How did I live without real, fresh, easy-to-make-after -OT-taught-me-how gnocchi?! Such a variety of fun and informative opportunities! Every day was a... read more

It was such a lovely holiday and learnt lots of different Italian cooking. IT was great to have found Organic Tuscany as they did a all Vegetarian one which was what we were after. The other excursions arranged were also great. Highly recommend it.

My girlfriend and I felt at home in the elegant farmhouse with Shilpa and Ricardo. We had rented a car and they sent us directions with photos so we couldn't get lost from the Florence airport. They arranged for a visit to a winery, a pottery and to local village sights in between cooking delicious meals. The... read more
