I went to Casa Ombuto with 13 people from Vancouver. We had such a great time cooking with Paola, going on wine tours, laying by the pool, laughing, eating, and drinking. It's a luxury villa with all the amenities. It all equals the best trip I have ever taken. I can't wait to go back. Paola is a great teacher... More

Don't hesitate anymore! Book your cooking class here with Paulo and the great staff! I enjoyed it with my Mom and it was the most wonderful experience. The rooms are terrific and comfortable too. The pool breathtaking. Book a massage for your first day...it was the best I've ever had. In fact I had two massages while I was there.... More

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

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
