Located just three kilometers from the historical city of Cortona, famous for its hidden treasures and gorgeous landscapes, Il Falconiere is a small, luxury hotel in the heart of Tuscany. Within easy reach of Montepulciano, Pienza, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi and Siena, and not far from Orvieto and Florence, Il Falconiere puts you in the heart of Italy.

Il Falconiere was for many generations the Baracchi family house before being made into a luxury hotel. The owners, Riccardo and Silvia Baracchi, manage the property and personally take care of the guests, giving the hotel a warm and inviting atmosphere, like staying at a friend’s gorgeous, sumptuous villa.

Silvia and all of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The preparation tables were set up with simple yet beautiful presentations. The location was photographic every where you looked. Planning was perfect and all of the "before" information was helpful. Peg did a great job keeping us informed.

Trip Details

Your 4 cooking classes will teach you traditional Tuscan recipes with Chef-Owner Silvia Baracchi, or one of the other restaurant chefs. This is a cooking school experience for students of all levels, but the kitchen is located in a charming house, where you can relax while getting to know the cuisine of the region. The cooking school will increase your natural love for food and provide you with the skills you need to translate this love into beautiful and imaginative cuisine, even once you return home. One course will include a cheese-making session with milk from a local dairy, and another with produce from a local farm you will visit.

A sample menu for one of your classes might include:

  • Eggplant roll with prosciutto and mozzarella, pici pasta with tomatoes and herbs, beef loin with shallots and balsamic, and poached pear with cheese and sabayon.
