Italy...the name alone makes my heart race

I love everything about Italy, the people, the history, the culture but most importantly the food and wine. We visited Italy with a large group of family and friends and spent a week exploring Tuscan. The highlight of the trip ( and this was agreed upon by everyone in our group) was a visit to an incredible cooking class. I promise you that you will leave this class with a new appreciation of the Italian way of life. Here is the email I received from Rita & Silvano after requesting some information.
