EXPERIENCE

Begin your experience in the beautiful city of Florence or Bologna. We will meet you in the morning for a walking tour of the city and a trip to the famous food markets.

After we select your food and the menu for your stay, you will be driven out to  Mount Fumaiolo and the home of your chef, Stefano Corvucci. His mountain retreat sits on the border of Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and Marche. Together you will prepare dinner as you relax and enjoy the scenery.

You’ll stay at a hotel or apartment in the small village of Balze. Over the course of the next few days you’ll be given personal cooking lessons by Stefano. He will teach you the culinary secrets of Pellegrino Artusi, the father of Italian cuisine. You’ll have your own workstation and a cooking program catered to your interests.
