The Women of Tuscan Women Cook
While the restaurants throughout Italy have wonderful cuisine, we’ve found the very best cooks in all of Tuscany are the local Tuscan women. Our local Tuscan women cooks teach recipes and techniques passed down from generation to generation over the centuries—the truly great cooking of Tuscany.
The women of our village of Montefollonico are exceptional cooks. From a Michelin-starred restaurant chef to modest, but incredible home cooks, the women of Tuscan Women Cook will delight you. In our daily classes, we normally use the services of more than one of our delightful cooks.
Our local cooks grow most of the ingredients for each class in their own home gardens. Eggs come from their chickens, wild boar comes from their husband’s skills, tomatoes and fresh zucchini flowers are picked just before the morning’s class.
Seasonal cooking, green methods of gardening, sustainable food products, slow food, local suppliers and purveyors—these are not new concepts to these Tuscan women, rather these are methods and concepts that have been passed down over the generations and are still practiced today.
