Have fun and join our 7-night cookery and wine tasting holiday in this beautiful part of Northern Tuscany. Combine cooking and wine tasting and learn all the basic Italian cooking techniques and traditions la Bella Garfagnana and Serchio Valley have to offer.

We will visit our local market, wander the streets of Barga, known as one of the prettiest villages in Italy and we shall visit Lucca. The most part of the time there are concerts, folk festivals, outdoor food festivals (where you can savour typical products), theatre, Barga Jazz and the Opera Barga.

My background is indeed a typical one. My parents and grandparents, originally from the Barga area, emigrated to Scotland where like many other Italian emigrants who opened their own catering business.

During my informative years, I gradually immersed myself in the culture, customs and traditions of my parents and grandparents and in particular their culinary cultures. I studied the ancient secrets and techniques of the traditional Tuscan cooking and kept alive certain recipes that lost popularity in the fast food era. A vegetable sformato, castagnaccio and necci are just some of the local delicacies of which later generations have little perception, even those born in Italy.

I have now been in Barga for almost 30 years, running my Bed and Breakfast and apartments together with my children and have now opened my cooking school.
