Picture this: it's Easter and you're in Tuscany staying in a 5 bedroom villa with 9 other friends... What do you do? Go to a private cooking class at Capezzana of course! This is well and truly an overdue post. If you know me, or have ever read my blog, I'm pretty sure you know how much I love food. And cooking. And baking. One of life's simple (and best) pleasures.
This was one of the best things I've ever done while travelling and I cannot recommend it enough. I'd love to go back and do the 5 day cooking class! BLISS. Everything we made was 110% delicious because all the ingredients were so fresh and Capezzana produce their own wine as well as olive oil. We were told Jamie Oliver takes his Fifteen class there every year for the olive oil pressing and I've just read this article and their olive oil is sold in New York. The bottle I bought to take back with me to London was amazing! I used it up pretty quickly because I wanted it in ALL of my cooking.
Here's some photos from our cooking class and I might even share some of my favourite recipes in future posts. That's something I haven't started doing yet but I've had several friends suggest I should start a food blog so I might as well start by posting a few recipes here and there!
