The idea was born when the passion of a chef met the enthusiasm of a photographer who owns an historic Florentine villa. We would like to give our guests a new experience and introduce them to the life of genuine florentine families, giving them the opportunity to live for a day in a magical place and learn the secrets of Tuscan cuisine. Silvia is a chef and teaches in various Florentine cooking schools and works as a private chef. Roberto is a professional photographer with a passion for cooking and good living.
