Upon being dropped off in Florence after our magical week at Il Campo Cucina in Radicondoli, I looked at my husband and said, "How on earth do we explain or describe what we just experienced??" Without hesitation he said, "I would say it is the same as being with Hemingway, smoking cigars in Cuba!" And he is right. For one profound week we were completely, totally immersed in the Tuscan lifestyle and all it represents - glorious food, wines, cheeses, excursions to amazing Tuscan locations and connecting with its people, many who have become our friends. And, my husband whose culinary skill was limited to a killer breakfast sandwich, now instructs our dinner guests on the art of making pasta! It is obvious that our week with Il Campo Cucina shifted our love for Italy into our passion. We are in our third quarter of Italian lessons, hoping to put them to good use when we return to Il Campo Cucina's Palio Adventure
week! Let the games begin!
