Our multi-tasking lives these days can be pretty stressful...A typical day can include super-challenging work in the office, preparing dinner, getting kids to bed.  Then there’s social life, stimulating social obligations as well.  It’s the rare moment of pause that we can dream of indulging ourselves, somewhere  between work, managing the family and a full social life.

March 23 2012 (Friday) - March 29 2012 (Thursday) - "AmorOlio: Speaking Tuscan in the Kitchen" in Tuscany’s glorious Mugello Valley. No, it’s not a language course, though we guarantee you’ll pick up an interesting phrase or two—maybe even a parolaccia (curse word) if we burn the onions for the ragu. But the kitchen at Villa Campestri truly speaks Tuscan: We invite you to join our own Chef Roberto (“Jerry”) Zanieri and food expert Nancy Harmon Jenkins, noted for her knowledge of all things Italian (and author of Flavors of Tuscany), for a magical six-day full immersion in the delights of springtime Tuscany.
