My parents and I spent an amazing day in Tuscany, learning how to cook from top chefs of the Michelin starred Borgo Santo Pietro, a & Châteaux property. We even learned how to make pasta from an Italian mama, Mamma Olga!
From homemade ravioli to pork tenderloin and finishing with made from scratch chocolate, we prepared incredible dishes using ingredients from Borgo's farm and garden. Chef Andrea Mattei was more than friendly, approachable and knowledge and we were amazed by his culinary skills--he is a Michelin starred chef after all! Our chocolate lesson was very sweet indeed, taught by Head Pastry Chef Diego Poli.
We even were able to enjoy each course that we prepared with some wine at their al fresco dining table. We couldn't have had a more perfect, Italian day at an incredible property--Borgo Santo Pietro--and we learned something too!
