Food, Wine and Cooking Retreats in Tuscany
Join us in a beautiful and undiscovered corner of Tuscany for an immersive and intimate journey into the finest and most authentic Italian food and drink. Come behind the scenes of Italian gastronomy, and against a stunning Tuscan backdrop spend time with cooks, winemakers, fishermen, olive farmers, cheese producers, gelato masters and much more.
Our focus is on personal cooking instruction from an experienced chef and pasta maker, and experiential, authentic tours that go behind the scenes at responsible small-scale producers. We believe in sustainable food and drink production that works in harmony with our environment; we introduce our guests to producers who not only make magnificent food, but who respect nature, innovate with green energy, and put quality and integrity above profit margins.
One half the of the Cook Eat Discover team, Oli, is an experienced chef and trained pasta maker who will walk you through a carefully selected repertoire of dishes and share the secrets and skills you need to create vibrant and authentic Italian cuisine. These cookery lessons will form part of a varied and exciting itinerary of Italian food experiences, including demos, tours and activities.
We are passionate about connecting people with the source of their food, emphasising the importance of respecting ingredients and the environment that creates them. Our bespoke tour of the region's producers showcases those who treat food with love and patience, and do things in harmony with nature.
We aim to inspire and empower food lovers who are passionate about Italian gastronomy, giving them unique access to the people, stories and time-honoured methods behind the dishes and ingredients.
You will be accommodated in beautiful poolside apartments, high above the southern Tuscan Maremma plain, in the medieval village of Roccatederighi. (Pool open from June to September).
Come and cook, eat and discover with friends and family, or on your own to meet like-minded food lovers. We are waiting for you here in beautiful Tuscany.
