A culinary dream come true in Tuscany!!! (click here to see this review also on TripAdvisor)
What a culinary adventure we had at Casa Ombuto. We can honestly say that ALL our expectations were exceeded and some!!!. This cooking course was my 50th birthday gift from my Fiance' Andy but we had to rebook it twice since March 2020 due to Covid. So when we finally arrived in beautiful Tuscany and the town of Poppi, we couldn't wait to get to Casa Ombuto. This has also been on my bucketlist since 2009, so it was a dream come true for me when we did finally drive into Casa Ombuto. Allyson, you are amazing and loads of fun as well. You made us feel part of the family from the moment we arrived and put a glass of wine in our hands. Chef Alice...what can we say that wasn't already said? You are an absolute delight!!! You truly do put your whole heart and soul into the cooking experience and your passion for food made this experience extra-ordinary. 😍 Thank you SO much for sharing this with us. Pippa and Lars, the owners, thank you for opening up your special place to us and for making it extra special by being there with us. You have both created something truly wonderful with your Casa Ombuto family and we couldn't wait to share it with our family and friend back in South Africa. An added bonus was that we met such incredible people on this course and will hopefully visit some of them in the USA next year. Thank you to everyone at Casa Ombuto and Liz at Tuscookany who made this adventure so special for us, nothing was too much effort for anyone. When we left, we felt like we were leaving family behind. We will be back!!!
Thank you so much for this great review, and it was indeed a pleasure to meet you both too. Look forward to seeing you again!
