trip-advisorA “Must Do” Activity While In Tuscany

I am not one to write reviews but when I do, it is because the experience was either terribly bad or extraordinarily wonderful. In the case of my cooking class with Taste Tuscany, it was the later! Lesley took a group of 12 adults (6 couples- yep that’s right, guys too!) and made us the chefs for a day. Lesley met us at approx 9:30 at our hotel and led us back to her home. We prepared pasta dough for ravioli, goat cheese tarts, pizzas, bruschetta, chicken liver pate, braised beef in Brunello wine sauce, tiramisu and a host of other dishes. We mixed dough,rolled dough through a pasta roller, made fillings, shaved chocolate, chopped liver, poured wine, cooked pasta, made sauces, poured more wine. (did I mention that we drank some wine?) Then we sat down on Lesley’s back porch to enjoy a wonderful meal that we had all prepared ourselves with of course the expert and friendly instruction of Lesley and her lovely assistant. We are still talking about our experience with Taste Tuscany as it was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. I would definitely recommend Lesley and Taste Tuscany to any and all that wish to learn more about the cooking and taste of the Tuscan area. We departed with a book of recipes for the dishes we had prepared, but we also left feeling that we were a part of Lesley’s family as she invited us in to her home and we left as friends. I appreciate her love of a beautiful country and a willingness to share it with others. If you love good food, good wine and good friends, then don’t miss this! Well done Lesley, Hope to see you again!
