SOLD OUT! Join The Cooking Mom in Tuscany!

Besides cooking, I LOVE to travel! Now that my kids are out of college I’m excited to travel and eat my way around the world! I’m hosting AMAZING culinary vacations. Have you always dreamed of going to Italy? Do it!

Amy Hanten in Tuscany, Italy

This trip to Tuscany is over the top and AMAZING! We’ll fly out September 15th, 2022! The weather is just perfect that time of year and no summer crowds. I hosted my first trip to Tuscany in September 2019. Now is your chance to get in on the fun! My trips are unique and extra special.

Let’s start with our hotel. We’ll spend 7 nights at this gorgeous 14th century Tuscan villa resort, Villa Casagrande.

It’s in the Chianti region with gorgeous views of the countryside, yet just a short stroll to the village for shopping and restaurants. The villa has two pools, a spa, beautiful courtyards to enjoy coffee or wine outside and relax and unwind.

A delicious breakfast is included every morning. Our hotel even has an amazing cooking school! We’ll learn how to make several authentic Italian dishes and then we get to eat what we make!

In fact, while we are in Tuscany, we’ll take a few different cooking classes. On my last trip to Tuscany one of the highlights was a trip to a real Tuscan farm. I’m so excited to go back there! We’ll meet the family and tour the beautiful farm. Then we’ll roll up our sleeves to learn how to make homemade pasta with Momma Theresa. She’ll show us how to make the best ever bruschetta, tiramisu and more.

It’s going to be a magical night filled with wine and a gourmet dinner that we all helped make!

On this trip, we’ll go into a Tuscan forest to hunt for the world’s best Italian white truffles! Afterwards we’ll sip wine and enjoy a meal filled with gourmet truffle dishes!

Speaking of wine, we’ll have plenty of it! We’ll be touring vineyards and doing lots of wine tastings!

When I travel, I love discovering the hidden gems! We’ll tour the beautiful cities of Florence and Siena. But, these aren’t your typical tours. We’ll eat our way around both cities with a local foodie who will show us the very best cheese, Italian meats, and more!

Let’s not forget dessert. We’ll go in search of the best gelato in Italy. We were even able to set up a visit for a special gelato tasting with a world famous master gelato maker. This is going to be super special!

All breakfasts and many dinners with wine on this trip are included. We’ll even enjoy a real Tuscan steak dinner.

On this trip we’ll have the option one day to explore beautiful Cinque Terre, which is a string of centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. We’ll spend the day there exploring this gorgeous area!

We’ll fly out September 17th, 2022, returning on September 25. But hey, if you want to stay a few days longer, we are working on adding an optional 3 days at the end of the trip. We’ll go to the stunning Amalfi coast. I’ve never been and always dreamed of going! More details on that coming soon.
