Learn about Tuscany’s farm-to-table cuisine at Il Campo Cucina – a unique cooking school located in a picturesque hill town near Siena. Meet the “teachers” – local women who hold classes in their homes, on their farms, and in other historic buildings. Discover the secret to making perfect lasagna, gnocchi, tiramisu and other traditional Italian dishes.
This Food and Wine Adventure in Tuscany is hosted by Marlane Miriello, an Italian-American who was drawn to the sense of community and sustainable lifestyle of tiny Radicondoli and is passionate about the foods, wines and culture of authentic Italy. This passion caused her to create Il Campo Cucina in 2010.
