FOOD TOURS AND COOKING CLASSES
A Tuscany Food Tour: the best ways to enjoy classic Tuscan dishes
Ripostena is a foodie paradise! We can arrange for hands-on cooking classes directly in your apartment with fun local chefs or at a nearby agritourism showcasing classic Tuscan dishes. We can send you on a Tuscany food tour to our favorite pecorino cheese producers, many of which are organic or small family run farms. They will show you their aging rooms and explain the ancient methods of production and of course give you a taste of the various types and ages of cheese. You have probably heard of the mysterious gourmet food called truffles – what you might not know is that they are plentiful in this region. You can spend a morning hunting with a truffle hunter and his trusty dog to find these unique treasures in the woods. If you love meats, we can book you for lunch at a famous butcher shop restaurant or send you to a local artisanal salumi maker for a tasting of their prosciutto, salami, capocollo and other salt-cured meats the Tuscany cuisine is famous for. If you want to try classic Tuscan dishes we are happy to recommend fantastic local restaurants, tell you about local festivals to experience, or suggest local farms where you can buy produce while at Ripostena.
