Villa Rosa dei Venti - Tuscany

Our Cookbook, Cooking Secrets of a Tuscan Family

The aromas and the flavours of these recipes originate in Creti, a lovely village near Cortona, in the heart of Tuscany.

As you leaf through this book, I truly hope you will be able to perceive the passion, warmth and the deep bond, which connects my family, “the Michelis”, to this land.

We will lead you along this “taste-journey” among olive oil, wine, apples, and the tasty Chianina, sharing with you some of our family stories and real-life anecdotes. Page after page we have opened our heart to all of you, not only through our memories but also revealing the secrets of our kitchen. It is well known that good food helps understand the atmosphere and flavours of a place.

I invite you to visit the Tuscan countryside: if you would like to come and pay us a visit, we will be happy to greet you in a splendid 1700s farmhouse: Villa Rosa dei Venti. Between a glass of good wine and a cooking course, we can continue telling you about our life in Tuscany.
