VIP cooking school in Tuscany

Since Florence was so busy we really wanted to take an excursion to Tuscany. Sunday was Easter, which is a huge holiday. We did find one and made reservations. It seemed to be the perfect fit. Wine tastings, local product tasting and a cooking lesson. We met them at their office in the center of town 
 We got to see a parade procession as we waited. Then we took a very bumpy van ride for about 45 min. We arrived at a beautiful estate 
Tuscany is just as beautiful and peaceful as I could imagine. The cooking school it's self left a lot to be desired, we didn't really get to do any of the things listed on the website and it definitely did not make us feel like VIPs. 

We did learn how to make egg pasta and ravioli at this cooking school. 
We also learned two different types of pasta sauces as well 
Our ravioli on with ricotta and Parmesan cheese

We did get to try a few little tastings of truffle oil and balsamic vinegar. 

Next we put it all together 

It was a long day, but we enjoyed being out of the city for the night.
