This was a first class/five star culinary experience! While staying in a magnificent Tuscan villa we were introduced to all the gastronomic specialties offered in the surrounding region. If you are a foodie and love traveling in Italy this is the trip for you!
Magical Adventure. My week with Chef David and Chef Mary Ann was magical. From the beautiful setting at Villa Valentina to the approachable cooking demonstrations, the week was more than anticipated. Daily excursions to learn about and taste wines and foods from various regions added to the adventure. I am grateful for the many laughs with new friends and the surprises Chef David had for us along the way, surely a trip I won’t soon forget!
The entire trip from beginning to end was simply amazing! The Villa Valentina was everything one would expect when traveling to Italy to stay in a Tuscan Villa. The food was incredible and the cooking lessons invaluable. The daily excursions were wonderful, highlighted by the new friends we made at the Villa. But we must say, one of the most rewarding parts of the trip has been returning home and actually being able to recreate everything Chef David artfully prepared and taut us to make in Italy!
