One of my favorite days while we were in Italy last fall was when we were recommended by Walks of Italy to take their private farmhouse experience in Tuscany. It was by far the best food we had eaten on our trip and it was cooked by us (with lots of help)!
What did we eat, drink, and make?
Bruschetta with home made olive oil
Saffron risotto with organic saffron from their vegetable garden
Tagliatella Mal Tagliate (egg pasta) with organic tomatoes from their vegetable garden
Slow cooked beef tenderloin
Summer fruit cake
Fontanaro 2010 wine made by them

Walks of Italy provided us a comped tour in exchange for a review. All opinions are obviously mine. Trust me, the food was incredible.
Have you been to Tuscany? What was your experience like?
