Juls’ Kitchen with Guilia Scarpeleggia
Born and raised in the Tuscan countryside, in the same house where her father and grandmother were born, has made Guilia Scarpeleggia who she is today: A world-class, local, authentic Tuscan cook. Her love for traveling has allowed her to embrace many adventures far and wide, but it was getting to know people during her travels and discovering their love for Tuscany that opened her own eyes to how marvelously wonderful her country and her local culture really is. It is something she holds very close to her heart.
Growing up in Tuscany, Guilia learned how to cook from her mother. Together they made sweet cakes, tender pastas, and picked vegetables and herbs together for new creations that have resonated with Guilia her entire life. Cooking has always been something she is very passionate about. It calms her and gives her satisfaction that she simply cannot get from any other activity. She is passionate about what her land has to offer in terms of the splendid colors, aromas, tantalizing tastes, and traditions so rich, she knew she had to share them.
Today, Guilia offers intimate, traditional Tuscan cooking lessons in her family kitchen located in the heart of the countryside, one hour from Florence, half an hour from Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Her rustic kitchen is welcoming and beautifully decorated with traditional Tuscan flair and style. This hands-on Tuscan cooking lesson creates a complete menu, from appetizer to dessert, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. As you sip on local wines, every dish will be introduced by a family story or a local tradition and you will learn to cook as Tuscan nonnas and mammas do every day in their kitchens. You will also discover the secrets of the local peasant country cooking.
Guests will also get the chance to take a day trip with Guilia as she visits local markets and farms to gather some of the essential necessities that make her dishes so wonderful, including extra virgin olive oil, goat and pecorino cheeses, and many seasonal vegetables.
The beautiful rolling hills that surround this outstanding Tuscan farmhouse will have you marveling as you start your Tuscan cooking lesson and prepare your delicious meal and enjoy it on the breathtaking terrace while sipping wine with new friends.
