Wow! To echo sentiments of my classmate below, my week at Tuscookany was beyond extraordinary. I had researched quite a bit and read the consistently strong reviews. As a solo traveler, I was a little trepidatious but looking forward to bonding over a shared love of cooking. And bond we did! We had an amazing group of individuals from all... More

Have just completed a fantastic week at Casa Ombuto. Chef Paolo is a star - not only is she a 'master chef' but she understands so much about people and makes everyone feel special. The others on the course were a fantastic group, lots of different nationalities and personalities, but we all bonded together well. Thanks Paolo and Tuscookany for... More

This was an amazing experience. The location is a little off the beaten path but not bad, it was very serene and relaxing. The chef is a truly remarkable woman "Paola"... Our group was only 5 folks yet she had us working like a well oiled machine in no time. Paola was able to work within each of our talents... More

This is one of the most enjoyable holidays in Italy. I had a fantastic time at casa ombuto. The was wonderful, friendly and warm. The location is breathtaking. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. And the cooking class with chef Paola was outstanding. I will definitely come back with family and friends.

Tuscookany, Tuscookany – Tuscookany Early 2016 when I realized that I would be traveling to Europe for a meeting I thought I should plan a little vacation time either before or after. An interest in cooking (and eating) lead me to look for a culinary vacation. There seemed to be thousands to select from but only a few dovetailed nicely... More

I've been planning this trip for years and at the end of May my two girlfriends and I embarked on a 7-day Italian cooking course which exceeded all our expectations! If you love food, love to eat and want to learn more about cooking this is the place, but you won't leave with only those lessons learned! You'll also come... More

We booked a week long Italian Cookery course in May 2016, not really knowing what to expect but wanting to experience the life, culture and cuisine of Tuscany. Well, this experience will blow you away! Firstly, the location is divine. It is everything (and more than) you would hope for if you dream of lush Tuscan hills, medieval towns and... More

Driving down the unpacked road, my wife and I were uncertain what we would find. Rounding a bend, the gates of Casa Ombuto appeared before us late Saturday afternoon. We were met by the cheerful 'hostess' Janine, who ensures that all guests needs are taken care of efficiently and with a warm smile. She immediately offered us wine, bread and... More

My girlfriend and I signed up for a week of Italian Cooking classes in early May - a most beautiful time to be in Tuscany!! Casa Umbuto was beyond our expectations. Tucked away in the hills - it's a dream-like setting from the large Villa with first class accommodations to the Cantina where we cooked and dined. The property is... More

We went for a mother-daughter cooking class and 'cooked up' memories to last a lifetime. We went in early April knowing that the weather could be bad (and it was), but that didn't matter because we had plenty to do in the kitchen. And the ambiance at Ombuto is perfect too for rainy days... we had roaring fires, plenty of... More
