Looking for a great rustic agriturismo where we can learn the classics from the chef

vivija | Mar 18, 2014 05:39 AM

For my dad's 60th birthday my family is planning a trip to Italy (not too far south) to celebrate. He is really interested in cooking and wine, and is a quite decent cook himself and therefore we want this to be one of the themes for this trip.

Can anyone recommend a great, rustic agriturismo (clean, authentic and with character, but not necessarily fancy) where we can learn rustic italian classics from the chef? We are not really into group classes, but it gets really expensive with private lessons (and then we won't be spending enough time in the kitchen).

We will be travelling in September or October. Ideally I would like to find a place where we can cook dinner with the chef in the evenings, learn how to make pasta and italian specialities, harvest olives (if in season) and drink some nice wine.

All advice are most welcome!

thank you
