Castiglion del Bosco Cooking School

53024 Montalcino (SI) - Italy
Phone: +39 0577 1913001

La Canonica, the old priest’s house situated in the heart of the Borgo, houses the Castiglion del Bosco Cooking School. Only few steps from this restored building is the organic kitchen garden designed by the same landscape architect who created the Vatican Gardens. The seasonal plots and beds in the walled gardens contain over 180 varieties of vegetables and herbs. It is here that the link between land and cuisine is most evident, highlighting the importance of simplicity and genuine flavors.

The small classes offer the chance for hands-on experience, while the lesson with the Chef recreates a real situation, starting by selecting the raw ingredients in the Kitchen Garden. After returning to the kitchen, the class goes through all the phases of preparing and tasting the recipes: Tuscan Menu, Pizza or Fresh Pasta. This informal lesson recreates the way cooking skills were handed down in the past and is a real experience to be treasured.

Castiglion del Bosco is a lavish 4,500-acre Tuscan country estate, owned by Massimo Ferragamo, and located near Montalcino, 30 minutes from Siena. The historic buildings of an entire Tuscan village and surrounding farms have been transformed into a network of suites and villas that bespeak the finest of Tuscan style, elegance, cuisine, wine making and specially tailored outdoor experiences. The estate is also home to Italy's only totally private golf club designed by the celebrated Tom Weiskopf, as well as stunning vineyards producing the famed Brunello di Montalcino wines. There is also a heli-pad, fitness center, tennis courts, bocce court, hiking trails, Kids Club and spa.
