Cucina di Andrea, in the Etruscan hill town Vetulonia, offers both private dinners and cooking classes. The meals are prepared in Andrea's rustic alfresco kitchen and served on a breathtaking terrace surrounded by groves of olive and oak trees—and backed by endless views stretching from the Tuscan hills to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Born to a local family of fishermen, Andrea's menus are inspired by the daily catch, which he prepares in classic Maremma style and serves along with other regional specialties. Cooking classes walk you through the process, so you can go home with some Tuscan kitchen skills. If you are in the area, Cucina di Andrea is worth a detour; reservations required.
