Where have we been, what have we been doing????
It's been a little while since the last post and you may be forgiven for thinking we had packed up and forgotten to tell you! But nothing could be further from the truth!!!!!! There have been two courses at Casa Lucia, a 'local' one, where we didn't do overnight stays and then a fully residential one, where we had an absolute blast!!!!!
There are some pics below to whet your appetite........why not sign up now for September or October?
Here's a testimonial from one of the guests..................
Wow! What an amazing holiday we had at the Casa Lucia Cookery school! From the moment they picked us up at the airport, Lucy and Mike were the ultimate hosts and the villa was beautiful with picturesque views of the surrounding countryside.
Everyday was a new adventure, made up of an outing to absorb the local culture and discover the local produce followed by a cooking lesson from Lucy or a local chef.
Lucy had organised everything to the finest detail, from wine tasting to cheese making and a hilarious visit to a performing butcher.
We learnt to cook everything from scratch, from pasta, to bread, to home made sausage and were taught how to prepare rabbit! Not to mention the delicious desserts we enjoyed everyday. Lucy managed to make every day full of fun and laughter while still maintaining an extremely professional approach to her teaching.
We ended the holiday with a meal at a superb restaurant hidden in the Italian hills. What a gem that was!
I thoroughly recommend Casa Lucia to all those budding Italian chefs or those that just want a fun relaxing holiday and love food!
Thanks Lucy and Mike, we'll be back!
