As one who always likes to share exceptional travel experiences, here’s my latest recommendation—Il Campo Cucina, a weeklong cooking vacation with former San Diegan, now-local Marlane Miriello in the medieval Tuscan
. village of Radicondoli

Here’s the deal. The weeklong instruction includes four hands-on cooking classes, each taught by a different instruct
or from the village or surrounding area. Everyone stays together in a country inn with private or semiprivate rooms or in a farmhouse with apartments. Each m orning there is a shared buffet breakfast in the dining room followed by a cooking class, an excursion or a hike through the countryside and a leisurely lunch. In the evenings, everyone dines together in a village tratt oria or a farmhouse dining room.
An example of one of the edible creations: spinach stuffed eggs with garden greens, marigolds and daisies. Can you say beautifully delicious?
