Toscana golosa - Cooking school
The region’s natural beauty, architectural treasures and sublime selection of food and wine, combine with our warm welcome to invite you to stay and be our guest. We want to tell you about our passion for Tuscany, for the land and how to cook tasty and traditional meals. But words are not enough... “Toscana golosa” is one of the most renowned cooking schools in Tuscany. Cooking classes are taking place in the charming Hotel “I Pini” the old residence of the famous painter Galileo Chini.
Emiliana Lucchesi is the instructor: she is one of Italy;s most famous journalists and food and wine writer. She is the author of several books and articles dealing with this wonderful subject . She is also a columnist for “Corriere Vinicolo”, “Lusso”, “Le Vie”, “Azienda Edicola” and the on-line magazine “Focus wine”.
The classes are from Monday until Friday from 9,30 a.m. to 12,30.
At the end we’ll taste the dishes we prepared together during the lesson. The classes are small and only seasonally fresh ingredients are used. Emiliana will show you how to prepare delicious dishes following the old, traditional Tuscan recipes collected in her books “Lucchesia colta e golosa” (1998) and “La cucina della Lucchesia e della Versilia” (2004): bruschette, soups, pasta, fish, meat dishes and desserts..
During your stay we will organize different excursions to wine cellars and sausage factories to taste the characteristic food and wine expressions of the area. You may never have heard of a Florentine called Galileo Chini, nor seen any of his works, but you have witnessed the effects of his talent all over the country. In the early part of this century, Chini was largely responsible for introducing the art nouveau style into Italy (where it is usually referred to as "Liberty"). He founded a ceramics factory that created colorful objects which soon made their way into thousands of homes, he painted canvases that were hung in museums ranging from the Uffizi to Rome's Modern Art Gallery, and he designed sets for his close friend Puccini. Chini's stage designs for Turandot are the epitome of the Liberty style; perhaps because of them he was asked to fresco the Royal Palace of the King of Siam. Chini lived in the Orient for two years. When he returned to Italy he built a vacation retreat in Versilia and called it Villa Chini. Its large sunny rooms, delightful ornamentation and century-old park were the height of luxury. Today that villa is a family-run hotel called Historic House “I Pini”. We work and life in this corner of Paradise
