First of all, I was skeptical at finding a Tuscany cooking school online, wiring money 1/2 way around the world wondering the whole time if it was legitimate. Well, it is fantastic. The staff at Casa Ombuto think of everything. The setting is in the hills of Tuscany, so very relaxing and extremely beautiful. The staff could not be more... More

I went to Casa Ombuto to please my chef girlfriend and ended up being overly pleased with the experience. Would have never guessed I'd have so much fun and then to end up learning so much. My girlfriend is passionate about her craft and also loved this time. She especially enjoyed the efforts of Chef Laura Giusti. Laura was hard... More

The grounds and the villa are breathtaking. I was greeted by Sheenah and she gave me a tour of the grounds and showed... More
