Our deepest thanks to Franco, our fabulous Chef and Teacher from whom my husband (a pretty ok amateur chef) and I learned so much: new techniques, fresh, healthy recipes and ways to produce a meal for many or a few and to the entire team, Paula, Lena, others, for their warm hospitality, support, and for thinking of our every need. A key to the success of these memorable four days was the spirit we enjoyed with the other 12 guests / students. Franco divided us into different teams for each part of the course, so we learned from him, from one another, and about one another. We were fortunate to have a wonderful group of fellow students and guests. Our excursions – arranged by Tuscookany – to VILLA LA RIPA, a wonderful winery and history villa, and to the Ravagni family Olive Farm, where Francesco was a most hospitable lunch host, teaching us about his olive oils, and to the Busatti Textile Shop in Anghiari also provided us a with interesting “tastes” of Tuscany. The four day program was well described, and exceeded our expectations. We thank the entire Torre Del Tartufo team for a most memorable four days, and we look forward to returning with our family!
