Fabulous experience We waited 2 1/2 years for this trip and we weren’t disappointed! Our hosts were great. The villa and pool were fabulous and the food so delicious! It’s the perfect split between cooking, sight seeing, relaxing and just being totally spoilt! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to explore Tuscany and experience the amazing food and wine from the area. Can’t wait to go again!

This was our 2020 trip that we moved to 2022! It was so worth the wait! Shilpa and Riccardo are wonderful hosts and every minute was amazing. The villa was beautiful with amazing views. The cooking together with new friends was so fun and delicious. The planned side trips allowed us to see more of Tuscany. This was a dream trip that we want... read more

This trip was fantastic - Shilpa and Riccardo run a wonderful course with delicious recipes and great trips to local attractions as well. The instructors and local producers we visited were all lovely and took plenty of time to share their experience and products with us. Really enjoyed the whole trip. The villa was beautiful and very comfortable.

In a perfect rustic villa, Organic Tuscany’s two wonderfully gracious hosts shepherded a small but interested bunch of amateur chefs through intense hours of chopping. dicing and etc. With our rapidly formed cohesive group, every minute was fun, exciting and certainly instructive. All made possible with the support of their wine maker friend, olive oil expert and local family members. In between sessions were several trips to nearby towns and... read more

Organic Tuscany was one of the best vacations I've ever had. The setting is magnificent, the staff so pleasant and helpful, the cooking classes were both informative and tremendously fun. And the food and wine were amazing. Meeting new friends from across the globe, touring multiple cities with great guides, visiting a vineyard and a potter's studio, having wine tastings and olive oil tastings made the stay incredible. ... read more

We picked the perfect Cooking School Shilpa ,Riccardo and their staff were perfect hosts. The whole week was so well planned from Day one. The side trips were perfect for seeing more of Tuscany. The food we made together was delicious. We came home and have made several dishes. The villa was beautiful with amazing views. We can't rave enough about Organic Tuscany and plan to return. We just need... read more

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

A perfect week. The classes were fun, informative & the food was exceptional. The week was a good balance between cooking, sight seeing and down time.
