Luxury Lucca Villa Cooking
Capannori or Vorno (Lucca)
When it comes to food, Tuscany is a region with an abundance of natural ingredients. From seafood and fish to meats, cheeses, olive oils, wines, fresh vegetables, and of course homemade pasta, Tuscany is a cooking tour destination that is always unforgettable.
On The International Kitchen’s 7-night cooking vacation in Tuscany, discover stunning landscapes and the centuries-old gastronomical traditions while enjoying lodging nestled in the rolling hills just outside of Lucca. An ancient Etruscan settlement, Lucca became a part of the Roman Empire and developed its prominent city wall transformed today into a picturesque pedestrian path.
Your culinary vacation accommodations will be at one of several private villas and residences in the area. Please inquire with specific dates for details.
About the cooking lessons: Be prepared for an exceptional gastronomical experience as your private chef and sommelier guide and assist you through your culinary vacation. After growing up in Romania, Chef Valentino moved to Tuscany to focus on the art of cooking and the business of villa hospitality. Just as Chef Valentino is passionate about the food of Tuscany and teaching his students new skills in the kitchen, his wife, Larisa, is passionate about wine. As a sommelier, she strives to teach all of her guests about the different grape varieties and how to pair wine with food; as such, each of your included meals will be paired with wine.
Between your excursions to nearby producers and the hands-on classes with your enthusiastic chef and sommelier that are included in this 7-night cooking vacation in Tuscany, you will be well equipped to exercise your new skills at home.
