Casa Ombuto | "Tuscany on a plate!"

“Tuscany on a plate!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Do you like to eat? If so, this is a week of cooking and eating that will excite your taste buds. Paola our chef extraordinaire – is a powerhouse of energy and enthusiasm for the world of Italian cuisine and especially the local Tuscan specialties. The week comprises 4 afternoons of cooking and a whole day excursion for wine, olive oil and cheese tasting. However, there is plenty of down time to lie by the pool, explore the local area if you have a car (recommended), walk or cycle along the trails in the forest, or just chill with a book. Other meals such as lunch and dinners provided by the staff were fantastic. The only let down was the house wines were pretty awful – Tuscany has more to offer than these basic wines. The accommodation was comfortable. However, all the staff deserves a big pat on the back!
