Let's face it there are lots of great places to stay all over Italy but very few that have a world class chef casually cooking you fabulous meal after meal, teaching her craft and sharing her wonderful home and property. If you want an authentic taste of rural Italy with someone who lives theTuscan dream then this is the place to stay.
Ca'di Gosto alone is a magical place, gorgeously hand crafted and filled with personal treasures, but as her guestbook repeatedly reveals it is the combination of a sumptuous, relaxed country abode with Jenny's seasonal, gourmet slow-food life that makes even a few nights at Ca' di Gosto a highlight of any vacation.

'the colour of the tomatoe sauce is so red because they are fresh and have ripened properly - not put in cold storage (unlike most shop bought toms). If your only option is to buy tomatoes from a shop always buy ahead of time and leave them on window sill to ripen (up to a week) as they are always unripe and need to develop flavour - J Nichols
