Casa Ombuto! What a gem!
Driving down the long track and then it opens out as Casa Ombuto reveals itself!
What a journey! Stunning location with luxury, beautiful surroundings and the most amazing people.
Chef Paolo kept our boisterous group under firm but loving control and I think we were all surprised at what we created. The range of dishes we cooked was far more than just pasta and tiramisu- even though we did cook those as well! Palio’s love of Tuscan ingredients and skill in the kitchen made her a delight to learn from - even though she was able to be tough when she needed to!
Every day was a delight as our kitchen skills Increased and we learnt so much. I would highly recommend this wonderful experience and I fully intend to return - maybe a few times!
The excursions to the vineyard, the farm and the olive oil producers were excellent and the pool, in the July heat of Tuscany were much appreciated.
The women who worked in the kitchen supporting Paolo and all of us were amazing and even the gardener worked hard to make everything in the garden perfect. Thanks Lars and Pippa for creating such a gorgeous space that anyone who experiences it is changed by.
