My wife and I had absolutely the BEST week at Organic Tuscany! After postponing for 2 years due to Covid, we went the end of May 2022 (great weather at that time of year). We arrived a day early, spending the evening in Florence to help get over the jet lag. The next day we took the train to Certaldo, where our rented (automatic, as I don't drive a stick... read more
Spent a wonderful week at OT in June. The entire staff was amazing and helpful. The classes were fun and the food was delicious! All set in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. We enjoyed excursions to a local winery, a local olive oil producer, and the nearby towns of Certaldo, San Gimignano, and Sienna. Thank you to all of you for making a long-awaited trip... read more
If you have one week in Italy, go here! My mum and I finally got to our Organic Tuscany week in May 2022 and it was the best part of our month long European holiday (Italy and Spain). And it was so much more than you even imagine reading the website and the schedule. We had an amazing and diverse group of 10, from Canada, US, UK and Australia - newlyweds, old friends, married couples, and two sets of... read more

This trip was an absolute dream! Basically like jumping into the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun.” The century old villa w frescoed ceilings is positioned overlooking rolling hills of grape vines. The hosts are immensely kind and thoughtful. They caringly guided us where we needed to go and helped usher us through the process of getting COVID tests before leaving town. We learned all the inside cooking tips and tricks... read more
We recently returned from spending the month of May in Italy. Our highlight was our week @ Organic Tuscany. It was everything and exceeded our expectations. Shilpa and Ricardo with their excellent team of cooks(like Coaches) have the winning formula for a wonderful experience in the middle of Tuscany. Shout out to Serenella, Manuela and Diana for their guidance and patience. As a novice culinary type, I personally appreciate... read more
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe our cooking week at Organic Tuscany. From Shilpa’s first warm greeting to a rather early morning farewell hug from Riccardo we had a wonderful week of cooking, tasting, learning and visiting some of Tuscany’s beautiful towns and cities. Stand out cookery moments were making gnocchi, preparing artichokes for the first time, attempting to make trofie and rolling a polpettone( a giant meat ball.) Early... read more
Our stay at Organic Tuscany was like a dream! Shilpa, Ricardo, and Ceranella were delightful, accommodating hosts that made our stay comfortable, relaxing and awe-inspiring. The cooking classes were detailed and I learned many tricks that I will be able to apply to all my cooking. We used fresh ingredients and received all the recipes to try at home. The location is incredible!! Beautiful view of the Tuscan hillside to... read more
Having decided to take our beloved old Alfa on a road trip from UK to Tuscany, over the Alps, we didn't think it could get any better than the journey to "Organic Tuscany". But we were wrong. From the minute we arrived Shilpa, Riccardo, Serenella, Diaine and the team gave us a truly personalised experience in a stunning setting, overlooking the Tuscan hills. Nothing was too much trouble, including... read more
Beautiful Tuscany with food, wine and tours. Our month long Italy experience was designed around Organic Tuscany. We weren't disappointed. It was the perfect blend of cooking, exploring nearby towns complete with tours and wine tasting. Our week-long stay was never boring, a perfect balance and our group from England, Australia, US and Canada embraced our common love of food and wine. This is what Italy is and we hit the jackpot. Thank you again to all... read more
An Exquisite Tuscan Culinary Experience I loved the whole package deal: the gorgeous location, the amazing cooking experience, the excursions to the picturesque Tuscan towns, the wine and olive oil tasting, the comradery among the participants and the kind and caring leadership of our hosts. I have traveled extensively, been on some wonderful river cruises all over Europe and this experience rates on top of my list of favorites.
Amazing foodie week in Tuscany Hello Brenda! Thank you for your kind words. It was such a pleasure to share food, wine, and laughter with you and Alan. It's a pleasure to hear that we helped create some lovely memories! Sending very warm wishes! Shilpa and Riccardo
Organic Tuscany is great!! Great experience with a good mix of seeing the area and cooking classes. The people who work with Organic Tuscany are all experts and great chefs! We learned so much and will continue to prepare many of the dishes. We ate well! Organic Tuscany was so organized with schedule, directions, and recommendations!
My week at Organic Tuscany was one of my favorite vacations. It was a perfect combination of cooking and eating wonderful food, sightseeing trips organized by the staff, wine and oil tasting events, a trip to a vineyard where we were served a fantastic lunch made by the owner of the vineyard and meeting wonderful people. Shilpa, Riccardo and all of their staff were fantastic. The villa was beautiful. I... read more
My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves at Organic Tuscany. Shilpa, Ricardo, and their staff are wonderful cooks and instructors. The hands on instructions are fun and easy to do. The recipes are classic Italian, very tasteful, and easy to duplicate when you get home and want to impress your friends and family members. This was one of our best vacations. I can't say enough good things about Organic Tuscany.... read more
I attended a week long cooking class at Organic Tuscany and couldn’t have had a better time. The classes were amazing as were the side trips to neighboring towns. Shilpa and Ricardo and all the staff were incredible. From the moment I walked in the door they made you feel welcome. I highly recommend this amazing experience.
