Review of Torre del Tartufo Cooking Vacations Tuscany

Reviewed October 24, 2019 also on TripAdvisor

Torre del Tartufo grounds are beautiful and is located in a very remote area. You feel like you have your own slice of the world to yourself. It is peaceful and beautiful. The sunsets are amazing. That is all a bonus to the real reason most people go there. When we arrived, we were greeted by Lena. She welcomes you as if you were family and gets you settled in your room. Then she explains the grounds and the agenda for the week. She was so helpful and thoughtful throughout the week. When you get to the cooking part of the stay, you meet Franco and Paola. Franco is the head chef and Paola is his assistant who makes the experience fun as well as educational. They are excellent chefs and even better people. We learned so much about food and cooking techniques while having fun doing it. Then you get to eat the meals you make and it is delicious. You do all this with a number of other people as a group, working and eating side by side. The group bonds and you find yourself making friends. I can go on and on about this vacation but I'll sum it up by saying it is a must on your list of destinations and I plan on doing it again someday soon. You won't be disappointed.
