More rooms available for May 2019
New: Additional Openings - May 2019 Tuscany Tour

More Rooms Added to the May 2019 Heart of Tuscany Tour

Happy New Year!

We are starting off the new year with some good news for those of you who wish to join us in 2019 for a cooking tour in Tuscany:  we have just learned that the Villa near Florence where we will be hosting our Heart of Tuscany Tour in May 2019 has a few additional rooms available. This means that we will be able to accommodate a handful more people on our upcoming tour (tour dates: Memorial Day Monday May 27 to Sunday June 2, 2019).

We are emailing only those on our Tour Early Access List to announce this tour, giving you first dibs on booking before the additional rooms fill up.

Please note that there are only 3 rooms available so they are likely to fill quickly...  Since we are currently in Italy, we  can take your deposit only by credit card, but of course your  balance will be payable by check in  February.


Tour details

This unique culinary vacation offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the delicious cuisine and idyllic countryside of Tuscany from our own private fifteenth century villa. The villa, set among 6,000 olive trees, is close to Florence, making it an ideal location for day trips to the Chianti area, medieval towns like Lucca and San Gimignano, and other beautiful spots in the Tuscan countryside. Our mornings will be spent at the villa, cooking authentic Italian specialties together. Weather permitting, we'll lunch al fresco, and perhaps take a swim in our private pool, surrounded by olive trees, before heading out by private bus to explore nearby Tuscan towns.


Reservation & Payment Information

If you have any questions or would like to reserve, please email us asap—keep in mind we are in Italy during the first 12 days of January so email might be easiest given the difference in time zones! For payment, we have created  an online payment option at the following link.

Payment by check is also possible, please email us for the details as the checks should NOT be sent to the regular Rustico Cooking address.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to cook with you in Italy in May 2019! And we wish you a very happy and healthy New Year!!
