Only the best ingredients
We at Triptoscana have been traveling the region of Tuscany since 2012 and we know it like the back of our hand. During this trip we will take you to the small city of Volterra, steeped in history dating back 4 millenia, and other picturesque medieval hill towns and villages. Osvaldo will be delighted to introduce you to the Italian lifestyle with tips, stories and anecdotes.
During the morning we will take you on a tour to the best local, artisan food producers. You will taste, see and smell what master cheese makers, winegrowers and many others produce. We will show you only the best so you can experience the soul of Tuscany and “La dolce vita”. In the afternoon we start with the cooking workshop and end the day with an excellent dinner.
Expert hands create culinary masterpieces.
Federico Frosali, a passionate cook, was born and raised in Tuscany where his grandmother passed on her passion for cooking to him. He gives lessons to entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry, is often asked to be a “Chef at home”, has developed his own line of delicious products made with the best ingredients and, together with his wife, runs a shop which sells local products. For a few years now, we at Triptoscana, have been working, with great culinary pleasure, with Federico.

Had a fantastic trip in the theme of Tuscan food with the beautiful country house Podere Casale as a base. Learned a lot from the expert chef Federico, who explained different techniques and shared helpful tips on cutting, cooking and planning preparations. I admire his passion for cooking and food and how well he explained everything and at the same time kept an overview of everything. This led to delicious meals, accompanied by excellent wines, and therefore to a lot of fun. The outings with Vincent & Osvaldo were also very successful: interesting visits, even more delicious food, and it was great to hear all kinds of information about this beautiful region from these insiders.
