6-NIGHT BAKING RETREAT AT THE CASTELLO DI POTENTINO
Spring: April 30th to May 6th
Autumn: Saturday 16th to Friday 22nd October 2021
We are delighted to have been invited back to the Castello di Potentino in Tuscany to run a 6 night Baking & Culinary Retreat in both Spring and Autumn 2021. In May, the local ricotta cheese is at it's most delicious, the sun will be warmly welcoming and the verdant hillsides bursting with new life and colour. In October, the olives will be in full harvest - we'll await the first pressings with eager anticipation - and the grape harvest will just be in, with enough on the vines left for us to enjoy. We'll bask in warm days and cool evenings under some of the brightest, starriest skies you will have seen.
The castello is a magical place, tucked away in the southern Tuscan Hills, surrounded by vines and olive groves. This beautiful castle creaks with history and we are privileged to share its ancient halls and surroundings for a short while.
We will be immersing ourselves in Tuscan traditions, both ancient and modern. Alongside a wonderful array of Italian baking and bread-making, we will spend our days exploring the local area and its wonderful producers. There will be wine tasting, olive oil tasting, cheesemaking… And we will bake and break bread together!
