Host Linda

$287.50 per guest


$3750 (per person) all inclusive 6-day, 7 night, Tuscan all-inclusive cooking school in the medieval walled village of Montefollonico, Tuscany, Italy.

For current openings, please look at the website:

The experience includes daily cooking lessons with local women, daily excursions, winery tours, cheese making, gourmet dinners, and tours of local and historic sites. Cook in Tuscany is a luxury culinary vacation for the traveler who wants to be a local, and not a tourist.


COOK: Join us in our medieval hill top village for a week of cooking delicious meals where the women of the village are masters of their art…food! They will endear you with their skills and laughter in the kitchen. Our teachers use the same recipes their grandmothers, or “Nonnas” as we say in Italy, used. Nothing has changed for generations--this is the way women in Tuscany have cooked for hundreds of years. Its magical to see Tuscan women cook!

EAT: After sharing time in the kitchen with new friends and your new “Nonna” we get to eat. We will sit around the table on patios, in gardens and sometimes in the kitchen and share the fruits of our labor. We will dine on homemade gnocchi, tagliatelli, bruschetta, herb chicken, stuffed flowers and original to Montefollonico--the thick ribbons of handmade eggless pasta--pici. And of course no meal is complete in Tuscany without a few good bottles of vino. We will also travel to neighboring villages and dine at renowned restaurants each day.

PLAY: After all the food and vino we are ready to play…the Tuscan Way. We will walk the cobblestone streets of villages, shop at local markets, visit wineries and cheese makers, see historic sights, and stop for cappuccino and local made pastries and taste creamy gelato. We will see who wins the red ravioli with their pasta rolling skills and who can win the coveted golden rolling pin for their skills and ability to pronounce the village names correctly.


On top of a hill facing Montepulciano, stands the medieval village of Montefollonico. Far from busy roads and from the usual tourist trail, the splendid isolation of Montefollonico is probably what makes it particularly charming and appealing. It is a fantastic medieval village, surrounded by 13th century walls that protect Montefollonico Castle.

With its narrow, winding streets and its low, rustic houses, Montefollonico provides a genuine view of Tuscany. Here you'll enjoy great cooking, memorable meals, and unlimited wine in our hidden village surrounded by rolling green hills.
