My friend and I completed the Mediterranean cooking course with Chef Laura in May 2015. It was a luxurious experience of cooking, making new friends, relaxing and seeing local sights. I've done several cooking vacations and this one is the best. Laura is patient, professional and delightful catering to all levels of cooks. If you only do one such course,... More

Casa Ombuto is a dream come true. It is a wonderfully restored villa in a gorgeous setting. You have to pinch yourself sometimes to make sure its all real. Paola is a fantastic teacher and had us constantly entertained and laughing. Not only did I learn a lot about cooking Italian cuisine but it truly was the most fun I... More

Wonderful villa in the tuscan mountains, perfect to relax, unwind and spend some time getting into Italian food, with the help of Paula whose enormous personality means the food you cook can only be divine. Great people, parties and food in a beautiful spot. Highly recommended!

Tuscookany We recently were fortunate to attend the Tuscookany cooking school at Casa Umbuto near Poppi. Prior to travelling to Italy, we had researched similar schools in Tuscany and this one came out a clear winner, so we planned our entire four week Italian holiday around this course, and having just finished the class, we could not speak more highly...

Like many, attending a cooking school in Tuscany was at the top of my proverbial bucket list. Casa Ombuto exceeded every expectation. The staff at Ombuto love what they do and their passion shows in every detail. The accommodations are charming, modern and comfortable, and the location is truly spectacular. I can't wait to return.

I spent last week at Casa Ombuto, April 11-18th and this cooking vacation turned out to be everything I'd wished it to be - and then some. It was an item on my bucket list that finally got ticked off and had I left this earth not having gone there, I would have left a lesser being. It was the... More

The accommodation was perfect, the staff were amazing, and the cooking lessons were outstanding. We learned an incredible amount about preparing Italian food. which we have tried (mostly successfully) to... More

What a great property Casa Ombuto has. The accommodatiions are fantastic and the staff is wonderful. I have wanted to take cooking classes in Europe all my life and this was the trip of a lifetime. Tuscookany knows how to do it right. Chef Laura was a delight and her helpers so talented. The Mediterranean classes were just what we... More
