Tuscany, Italy is the land of sun, of great wines and good & genuine food, perfect for private aperitifs, light lunch & dinner in rental villas & farm houses nestled in our beautiful countryside. I can plan & organise for you not only wine tastings & cooking classes around the region, but also aperitifs by the pool or light lunches & dinners in your private villas. Summer in Tuscany offers genuine vegetables & fruits and an immense variety of food you can use for a simple but tasty meal no matter where you are. Fresh tomato & mozzarella for a easy plate of caprese, panzanella, a famous Tuscan bread salad with raw vegetables, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, onions, basil…, or just a simple & refreshing ham & melon, pecorino cheese with honey & jams. All paired with fresh prosecco, white wines & young reds to make you try the best of Italian cuisine in only a few minutes of work. Cocktails by the pool with a breathtaking view of the Tuscan hills at sunset and a glass of bubbles in your hands, plus a small buffet with fresh cheese, ham, olives & grilled vegetables, are to me the best way to enjoy your vacation in Tuscany after being around the region for wine, cheese, olive oil tastings & cooking classes, or even walking tours in famous art cities. Dinners in private villas can be a chance to enjoy & have fun drinking & tasting local produce with a complete meal cooked by a professional chef or a traditional farmer’s menu prepared by a local cook, of course paired with great local Tuscan wines from Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena, Chianti & San Gimignano! Tasting genuine wine & food in front of amazing views, not only in wineries, farms, restaurants, castles but also in your private villa is a must do if you wish to live an unforgettable experience in Tuscany.
