Fancy to learn some authentic Tuscan cooking from a real Italian grandma? Le Pietre Vive is the place for you! We spent a wonderful and memorable night with Nonna Ciana (farmhouse owner, Nicola's mother) and Valeria (the translator), learning basics and tips of authentic Tuscan cooking from them! The handmade tagliatelle and gnocchi Nonna Ciana taught us to made, using ONLY fresh and organic ingredients from farms near-by, tasted "perfectto"!
