A visit to the Tuscan hills last month saw us enjoying some truly spectacular food, fantastic wines and breathtaking scenery. We can’t wait to go back next summer and do it all again when the weather is slightly warmer and the sun is shining continuously!

What we love so much about Italian cooking is the simplicity; using excellent produce and allowing the ingredients to largely speak for themselves. The best meal we had was in a tiny village, in the only open restaurant we could find at that time in the afternoon! We ate tomato bruschetta, followed by pasta, followed by lamb chops, followed by tiramisu, followed by grappa …  Absolute perfection!
