My wife and I stayed at the Palazzo Leopoldo at the suggestion of our travel agent, a native Italian who has stayed there several times and always found it a lovely place. She certainly was right. This is a quaint, well-managed hotel in Radda in the Chianti Region. As soon as you enter the hotel you will sense its warm, friendly ambience. We immediately felt at home. It has a wonderful terrace with spectacular views of the Radda countryside. The staff was responsive to all our questions and helped us a great deal. They also showed generous and patient support for my fledgling skill speaking Italian. The high point of our stay at the Palazzo Leopoldo was the cooking lesson with two masters of the kitchen: Chef Lorenzo and his aunt, Chef Lorena. They arrived with the freshest of vegetables, meats and spices, plus great wines—all local. We were impressed that everything was prepared from scratch as we watched. Add a lovely table setting, explanations about the food and its relationship to Italian culture, and the genuine warmth conveyed by Lorenzo and Lorena and we were treated to a fantastic dining, learning and social experience. Check out their many services and products available through Gastronomia Biagioni and its website www.gastronomiabiagioni.it. I highly recommend Palazzo Leopoldo. When you reserve your stay at Palazzo Leopoldo, remember to reserve a cooking class with Chef Lorenzo or Lorena, perhaps both if their busy calendars permit.
